  •       Would you like to save yourself money by painting your own furniture?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you will simply LOVE Canterbury Blue™ and all it has to offer you! The Canterbury Blue range is the most affordable on the Australian market with 32 colours and 3 sizes to choose from.

It's so EASY to USE!

  1. Choose your colour.
  2. Shake can vigorously like a cocktail then stir like cake batter .
  3. No need to pre-sand or prep your piece as our EZ 2 Paint almost always will              adhere to any surface. Don’t worry about wiping down the dust or spider webs          they add character and depth to your piece too.
  4. Dip a your good quality brush into the paint and apply with no stress...paint like        a child and enjoy yourself. Apply paint in different directions to achieve a                  textured aged base with which to work.
  5. Wait 30 minutes between coats, quicker in warmer months or if painting outside         in a breeze.
  6. Apply second coat, paint with a gentle hand and try not to paint over and over          the same area.
  7. You will know your paint is dry and ready to sand by testing a small area with            your sanding block. It will sand easily and a chalky dust will appear. Your piece          will become very smooth and feel beautiful after a gentle sand.
  8. Dust off all chalky residue with an old brush or use a dry cloth.
  9. Wax with our EZ 2 Wax™ , apply with a waxing brush or clean cloth. Allow 10            minutes to dry then polish with clean lint free cloth or pop your hand in a sock.        Generally 1 coat is enough but apply 2/3 coats on high traffic areas for best              protection eg table tops and chairs that are used daily.
  10. Don’t worry about drip marks or brush marks as you can sand these all out or            leave them there for character and a true bespoke finish. Canterbury Blue™                Furniture Paint is a very porous forgiving paint that is soft to sand and will allow        you to choose the type of look and finish you desire. The more you sand, the            smoother the finish.
