Do I need a topcoat?

After applying Fusion on most projects that you complete around your home, you will not need an additional topcoat. There are a few exceptions, for high traffic areas such as kitchen or dining tables, dressing table tops and coffee tables too. Anywhere you think will get extra wear and tear adding a top coat will give your paint finish longevity. We use the analogy of when you get your nails painted. The polish will last longer and give your manicure some added protection when you apply a topcoat.

Fusion topcoats

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when choosing your topcoat. What the projects will be used for and what sort of look do you want? Answering these questions will give you a much better idea of the topcoat best suited to your project. Your paint colour will also have to be taken into consideration when choosing. See here the different types of topcoats and their properties.

Hi, thanks for visiting my shop! I am Jill, and live and work and about 10km outside of Amsterdam. I have a complete passion for upcycling furniture and making an old piece sparkle again. I love the idea of giving you a statement piece for your home.

If you are looking for something in particular or would like me to do a bespoke design for you or source a particular style and redesign it, just send me a message. I would love to work on your statement piece with you! x
