Welcome to Lost & Found's Fusion Mineral Paint 101 Workshop!

Here’s how this works:

The workshop videos are divided up into segments, starting with basic information and prep, then moving through paint techniques and finishes. Feel free to move through the information at your own pace!

You may choose to just watch the videos and use them as a training and informational reference, or practice along with me using the actual products I use in the video.

Here is a comprehensive list of Fusion products used in this video:

  • Fusion Mineral Paint colors Homestead Blue, Sterling, Ash, and Champlain
  • Fusion Tough Coat
  • Antiquing Glaze
  • Espresso Wax
  • Beeswax Finish
  • Beeswax Distressing Block

If needed, you can find these products for purchase online at lostandfounddecor.shop.

Additional materials you will need to practice the techniques:

  • Paintbrush
  • 180-220 grit sandpaper
  • Rags
  • Plastic bowl and water
  • At least 3 pieces of scrap wood or sample boards

Please feel free to use Fusion products and/or materials you may already have on hand, or shop for the products that interest you a la carte in my online shop.

Also, for your convenience, here are shopping links for additional products I mention in the videos:
