Wham bam thank you, Pam! A mouth-wateringly vibrant, raspberry pink that will have you coming back for seconds. A total stonker!

Please note that this is a Limited Edition colour so you won’t find it on our Colour Chart. Catch it while you can!

Perfect for updating your kitchen, bathroom, front door or just about anywhere! Weatherproof Al Fresco is a water based, eco-friendly chalk and mineral furniture paint with a low, almost flat finish. Requiring simple prep, it is self-priming, self-sealing and suitable for wood, laminate, UPVC/composites and metal both indoors and out. Having minimal VOC content and UKCA and EN71-3 compliance, it is safe for use on children’s toys.

Coverage

  • A 500ml tin will provide a single coat of up to 8.5m2. For a durable finish, a minimum of 2 coats is required, so your 500ml tin should provide full coverage for just over 4m2 on non-porous surfaces. 
  • Porous, or ‘thirsty’ surfaces like bare wood or MDF, tend to absorb paint meaning additional coats are likely to be required to achieve a durable finish. In this case, your 750ml tin will provide less than 6m2 of full coverage. If you apply the paint too thinly, durability may be affected.

Preparation

  • Ensure surface is in suitable condition for painting and free from grease, wax or penetrating substances. If previously painted, remove loose or flaking paint.
  • Surface preparation required in addition to the above – clean with Frenchic Sugar Soap, rinse and dry thoroughly. Hand-sand sufficiently to abrade the surface. Wipe off any dust, paint away! For a great demonstration, see our video.
  • Take care on opening the tin lid – a Frenchic tin opener is recommended
  • Stir thoroughly with a wide implement, such as a Paint Paddle, prior to each use

Application, drying and curing (hardening)

  • Avoid painting in direct sunlight, only when the air and surface temperatures are between 10oC and 32oC and humidity is less than 85%. Do not apply if, in the following 48 hours, there is likelihood of rain, frost, fog, condensation or if the temperature is likely to drop lower than 10oC
  • Exterior wooden surfaces in particular can retain moisture for up to 48 hours after rainfall or preparation. Ensure the items are thoroughly dry prior to painting.
  • Apply with a good quality brush or roller.  Also suitable for spraying - thin with up to 15% tap water and apply additional coat(s).
  • To allow self-levelling, avoid overworking the paint
  • Allow a minimum of 2 hours between coats (even if the paint feels touch dry).
  • Curing (hardening) time is up to 3 weeks in normal conditions. Treat gently until curing is complete.
  • For floors, to avoid damaging the finish, do not walk on the area for 4 hours after painting and then with socks for the next 7 days. Also, try to keep pet paw claws off as well during this period. Do not allow the surface to become wet for at least a week. Continue to treat with care for up to 3 weeks.

Clean up and storage

  • Reseal tin after use. Clean up any spills immediately with water. Wash brushes in warm, soapy water.
  • Do not store where the tin could be subjected to damp, frost, freezing or high temperatures.

Advice for choosing colours

We make every effort to match our online colour swatches to the paint but colours can vary depending on a number of factors, including screen settings. This means that we cannot guarantee the paint will exactly match what you see on screen. Please order a colour chart, small tin or sample sachet (where available) or visit your nearest stockist to see the colours yourself.
