What sets Laney’s Old Village Paints apart from our competitors?
Our paint ingredients.
The rich, deep colors found in each can of our paint are created with natural pigments.
Natural pigments come from the natural formation of color in nature, like rust or ocher. These natural pigments are the same ingredient found in high quality artist paints. That’s why Laney Landis, Old Village Paint owner, often calls Old Village Paint “artist paint in a can.”
Big box stores, like Lowes and Home Depot use a very different system for making paint. They start with a tint base, usually clear or white, and then add in a “universal tint.”
Universal tints are manmade chemical colors, and they tend to be translucent. Where you might need three or four coats of this type of paint to get a deep red, you’ll only need a single coat of our paint! Cut hours of labor time and save money on your next project by trying Old Village Paint.
Another unique OVP trait? We still make paint in batches, just like we did over 197 years ago. We mix up the natural earth pigments and the other paint ingredients and then pour it into waiting cans.
Just like you bake a batch of cookies, we mix up a batch of “solider blue” or “antique mustard.” That’s why Laney’s Old Village Paints don’t need to be sold at a paint store, no mixing or tinting is required. It can be sold right off the shelf.
When artists are painting a masterpiece, they use high quality paints. They want to put down deep colors of paint with just a single stroke-and that’s what our customers can do with our paints. So enjoy the deep natural pigments in our paints, they not only mean less cost and labor, but a more beautiful finished product.
Happy Spring! -Jenny
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
