Carbon- a blue that thinks it’s black, with teal undertones. Moody and dramatic. Please note, this color looks much brighter in the jar or when wet, than when fully dried. It also needs 4-5 coats for full coverage to reach the depth of tone that is shown in the example photos. Do not use over white primer, as this can brighten the tone/end result. For best results, use over a tinted or dark primer.

This is our original Artisan Mineral Formula, which requires sealing with a topcoat.

Mélange Paints is a small, veteran owned, woman-led paint making shop in the Houston, Texas area!


Prior to applying any paint products, we recommend you clean your surface with Anvil cleaner or a degreaser cleaning products. When using a degreaser other than Anvil, be sure to rinse it off well with water. If using Melange Anvil furniture cleaner, there is NO NEED TO RINSE! 

For maximum results LIGHTLY sand between each coat with a 220 grit sanding pad or sponge.

The Rachel brush or Zibra brushes are recommended for the smoothest application.

A stain-blocking primer is recommended when painting over a surface where bleed-through is a concern or an adhesion primer when painting over a very slick surface. 

Melange Artisan Mineral Paint may be thinned with water, if desired.

Dry time between coats varies from 2-4 hours, depending on climate conditions. Full cure time is 20-30 days.

Shelf life for open paint is approximately one year, depending on storage conditions and indefinitely for unopened paint.
