The new colors have been pre-ordered, and we are expecting them on our shelves the first week of November 🙂

If you’ve got a favorite color that is retiring, you might want to grab one or two before it’s gone – once it’s gone it’s gone!

If you’ve got your eye on one of the new colors, and would like to pre-order, give us a call or email – we’ll put you on the wait list.   In the mean time,  we’re working to update our online shopping cart, once complete you can pre-order directly from there.

Maybe it’s a good time to take advantage of our American Paint Starter Kit $60  The basics are all you need in this Starter Kit.  Pick your colors and we’ll put together the rest.  Includes:

  • 2″ DOUBLE Thick Chip Brush
  • 1 sheet 220 grit sandpaper

You’ll receive three colors of paint allowing you to create a single color finish and multi layer finishes.  Use the all natural, non toxic Clear Wax to seal your paint finish, buff out to a lovely furniture finish glow.  Two various size  chip brushes, perfect for holding and laying out the paint. One sheet 220 grit sandpaper round out the tools you might need to acquire that perfect fine furniture finish, use alone, or with a wet rag. Instructions are included, and a Custom hand painted Color Chart – you’ll need that to pick out your next round of colors after you fall in love with these paints!

  1. I have followed you for a long time. I have looked for this paint every since you have started carrying this line. My problem is I use a lot of paint. Since they are finally carrying it close enough to me I am going this week to try this paint! I can’t wait! I will be following your tutorials on it until I get the hang if it. Thanks!

    • Use a lot of paint, you mean, on your brush? The APC paints are fabulous, they aren’t thin and whimpy, more full bodied – when you brush your color out dont be afraid to BRUSH it out – thats probably the one thing I see new users do, not lay it out as much as they could have, which is fine, but you’ll use more paint that way AND it will be a thicker application. I cant wait to get the new colors in ….
