What is the Ellis Collection you ask?

The Ellis Collection is a limited edition of 12 old-world colors, sold in pint sizes. Each of the 12 colors are named for items that were brought with immigrants coming to America.  Their hope for a new start after their journey coincides with the new life given so many pieces we revitalize with paint.  Being an all natural, eco-friendly chalk and clay base paint is an important feature for American Paint Company and is the key in creating new treasures that can become heirlooms for another generation.

In keeping with the euro look we all love, the collection includes 3 colors of Glaze finish; clear, brown and black.

The Glaze Finish is a highly versatile and concentrated transparent glaze.  It can be tinted with APC Micas, used as a color wash or to create a special aged finish. APC Glaze Finish has superior workability and can be used for a variety of looks.

I’ve got more playing to do, with the glazes ,  over colors full strength, over raw paints, but for now I tried five neutral colors of American Paint.  You’ll have to click on the picture to see the details…

UNCLE SAM

1 coat Uncle Sam, 1 coat Topcoat Finish, 1 coat pretinted glaze mixed 50:50 with water. I brushed glaze on and wiped it softly with a dry cloth.

HOME PLATE

1 coat Home Plate 1 coat Topcoat Finish, 1 coat pretinted glaze mixed 50:50 with water. I brushed glaze on and wiped it softly with a dry cloth.

NAVAJO WHITE

1 coat Navajo White, 1 coat Topcoat Finish, 1 coat pretinted glaze mixed 50:50 with water. I brushed glaze on and wiped it softly with a dry cloth.

LIMOGES

american paint company, chalk clay mineral paint, glazes,ellis collection, fabulous finishes,

1 coat Limoges, 1 coat Topcoat Finish, 1 coat pretinted glaze mixed 50:50 with water. I brushed glaze on and wiped it softly with a dry cloth.

PARCHMENT

american paint company, chalk clay mineral paint, glazes,ellis collection, fabulous finishes,

1 coat Parchment, 1 coat Topcoat Finish, 1 coat pretinted glaze mixed 50:50 with water. I brushed glaze on and wiped it softly with a dry cloth.

The glaze also comes clear, and can be tinted with tints, pigments, micas, stuff like that.  The glazes will create a washable seal over chalky or dusty surfaces.. Several coats of Glaze Finish will dry to an eggshell sheen.  You can water the glaze down with 1,2 or 3 parts water to 1 part glaze,  which is what I did over these light colors. Cutting it with water will lessen the sheen as well.
