We are so excited to officially release the newest paint line in the Tattered Angels family of paper, craft and DIY paints, Décor & DIY Paint.  This great new paint got its name because we think it is a perfect choice for all you decorating needs when a great paint is required to cover just about every surface and for your Do It Yourself projects where you need to a paint to do what you need it to do.

About our Paint

Tattered Angels Décor & DIY paint is a multi-purpose paint used for reusing, repurposing, refinishing, redoing, reclaiming, redecorating or just painting. Tattered Angels Décor and DIY paint is professionally manufactures and offers a good quality, high performing paint that appeals for use on the most flexible range of do-it-yourself, decorating and craft painting projects.  We suggest 1-2 coats, but you can apply more if you are looking for a very durable finish.  Our paint does not require a topcoat or a wax seal, but you can add finishes and waxes to get the look you are trying to achieve.  We offer 28 different colors which are available in 8oz containers, with approximately 25 square feet of coverage per 8oz.



Our paint has so many great features we wanted to tell you all about them, but we know we are not able to cover every detail.

Durable – we chose a formula that would withstand the wear and tear of amazing creativity.  They key is the paint will not simply scratch off like other paints and with a few coats (let them dry between coats) you painted surface will become even more durable.

Smooth Finish – the chalk, milk, craft and other paints on the surfaces have a wide range of finishes when they are dry, some have a gritty, chalk feel and others can be waxed for a shiny finish, our finish is a smooth finish on its own that is not too glossy, not too matte, it is just right.

No Sanding – our paint will adhere to just about any surface without sanding or priming.  We do recommend when painting raw wood that you remove any rough edges by sanding and making sure you clean the surface completely and allow it to dry.

Indoor and Outdoor – not only is this paint durable, but it will work for outdoor and indoor projects.

Self-leveling – no need to over brush to try and remove you brush strokes, they will self-level as the paint dries.

Water-Soluable – wash up is a breeze with our paint, just soap and water clean up is all that is required

No Premixing –  unlike other paints on the market that are in a powder form or must have other items added to them, our paint is pre-mixed and ready to go.  Storage is easy as well, just a cool, dry place, but no special storage requirements.

Low VOC – we do our best to be environmentally friendly and our new paint let’s us continue to uphold that goal.  The low VOC’s allow you to paint inside and do not require special ventilation when painting inside.  Low VOC also means low smell, which we really important to us.

Acrylic Formula – many of the paints on the market today are made with many different recipes and formulas, we choose to offer a high quality acrylic formula that has been tested to outperform most of the DIY paints on the market.  In most cases, but not all the lower the cost of the paint the lower the quality of the paint.  It does not always mean you have to buy the most expensive, but the price gives you a gauge to judge the quality and make the right paint choice for your needs.

To sum things up, this great paint is strong, easy to apply, dries quickly, has a nice finish, does not require a topcoat, it is not smelly, you don’t need to prepare your surface or do any sanding, you can blend to make any color you like and you can paint indoor and outdoor projects.  So basically you can paint anything you want, anywhere and we hope you will be very happy with the results.

Decor and DIY paint is available in 28 fresh, trendy colors. Our palette offers a wide range of colors that work well for any design style from shabby chic, modern, vintage, trendy or eclectic and anywhere in between.

Our offering of 28 colors can be blended together to create new colors, making the color palette infinite.

New Colors – blend one or more colors to get the color of choice.  Keep in mind that the paint dries differently than it looks wet, so you will want to test your color and allow it to dry.  As you create you new color make note of what you add so that you have the recipe, even a drop of extra should be noted if you need to recreate the color.  To store your new color you will want to keep in a airtight container.

3-in-1Adjust the Hue – Looking for a different tone of a color you can adjust easily by adding white to lighten the color or black to darken the color.  Add a little at a time as the color can change rather quickly.  You will want to test and allow to dry to make sure your color is right on.  Using more than one hue on a project can really give it unique depth and a designer result.  Keep count of how many drops you add incase your need to recreate your new hue.

Vintage Look – after applying the color you can add a wax, touches of one of our darker colors or choose different techniques using other paints from the Tattered Angels Paint collection to create a vintage, distressed look.

Painting Tips

  1. Clean Surface – we do recommend that you paint a clean surfaces, removing dirt, dust and any sand dust with soap and water and allow to dry completely before painting.
  2. Painting area – you will want to prep your paint area to make sure that you don’t paint anything you don’t want painted, remember this paint paints onto just about every surface.  You will want to tape off any areas on your surface you do not want painted too, we suggest using Scotch Blue Painter’s Tape.
  3. Dry between coats – allowing your project to dry completely between surfaces is really important, painting too quickly will cause you to “move” the bottom coat vs. paint on top of it.  We recommend 1-2 hours in normal weather, if it is very humid you may want to wait a bit longer.
  4. Don’t over brush – remember this paint is self-leveling, so don’t feel the need to keep brushing to remove your brush strokes, this can end up with a caked look you will not make you happy.  Coat the entire area even if it is not covering completely and allow it to dry, the second coat will adhere much better and create a smooth finish when dry.
  5. Harder to cover surfaces – very slick surfaces may be a bit tricky, but they can be covered too, apply a single coat over the entire surface and allow to dry, even if it looks streaky and not well covered, the miracle happens with the 2nd coat and you can choose to add a 3rd coat if desired.
