It’s Time to Get Goopy

27 Feb

What do you want to do with goopy paint? Get a distressed look on a piece of furniture?  Create raised lettering on a wall or sign?

Laney’s Old Village Paint president Laney Landis came up with the idea for Goopy Paint while playing around in her paint room.  She thought “if this were goopy enough I could do a lot of fun stuff with this.”   So she called the chemist and they developed GOOPY PAINT!

If you’ve ever wished your paint would drip or run less, you should give this paint a try.  It’s perfect for all sorts of projects.  Here are directions for two of them:

TIP: Always be sure to start with a clean dry surface. For interior use you will not need primer as Old Village Paint is Highly pigmented and will hold up superiorly to most modern day paints. When surface is questionable please use our ‘Over & Under Acrylic water based Primer’ #1738 White or #1735 Gray. This can even be used over oil paint.

To Get a Primitive Distressed Look

  1. Paint your GOOPY PAINT on your chosen surface and just goop it up! Let it dry Goopy. (2-4 hours)
  2. Paint any Old Village Buttermilk or Vintage Paint colour you choose on top and allow to dry. (Thin top coat with distiller water for easier sanding.)
  3. Sand gently to reveal the high point of the GOOPY PAINT.
  4. Wax (if desired) with Schrack’s Cream Wax either Dark Brown or Clear. Or Antique with Old Village Brown or Black Antiquing Liquid.
  5. For a more polished look you can finish with one of our Graining and Glazing Liquids.

Raised Embossed Finish

  1. Spray stencil adhesive to the back of the stencil and firmly press the stencil to the area you wish to emboss.
  2. With a spatula scoop out some goop and carefully apply it to the stencil to fill in all the openings to the edges.
  3. Let it settle for a few minutes then gently remove stencil and let it dry.
  4. Paint any Old Village Buttermilk or Vintage Paint colour you choose on top and allow to dry.
  5. Sand gently to reveal edges of your embossing.
  6. Wax (if desired) with Schrack’s Cream Wax either Dark Brown or Clear. Or Antique with Old Village Brown or Black Antiquing Liquid.

ABOVE ALL ~ Have Fun!!!

I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.- Benjamin Franklin
