Clay Paint Tester

By Unearthed Paints


Natural white clay provides an exquisite finish using earth and mineral pigments that are blended to create a robust palette that is odorless, non-toxic and 100% VOC-free. A wide spectrum of extraordinary hues can be achieved by mixing the 12 available clay colors or by tinting the white Clay Paint with Unearthed pigments. Clay Paint colors are premixed with pigments and can be used pure for rich, deep colors or mixed in Natural White Clay Paint for subtler, lighter shades. Individual Clay Paint colors can also be mixed together to create shades that are exclusively yours.

Clay Paint contains vegetable casein (vegetable protein) and white clay as binding agents. The combination of these binding agents combines high durability of the coating with a velvet matte surface. Primarily developed for indoor applications, the Clay Paint matte finish is suitable for use on absorbent surfaces such as plaster, stone, concrete, wallpaper, drywall, and fibrous plaster boards. Clay Paint is not recommended for certain permanently humid surfaces, including kitchens and bathrooms.  Use Unearthed Gecko Paint or Lime Paint for these applications.  Clay Paint can be applied with rollers, brushes, and airless sprayers.

Ships as a dry powder - just add water to make 1 gallon or 1/10th gallon, depending on your package size.
