Comments (0)

Black Dog Salvage resident artists Susan “Swooz” Hudson and Karen Curtis have been mixing it up in the paint studio and we are happy to announce 22 new custom recipes for the ultimate in customization. “We are following the latest color trends and creating some of our most-requested mixes here at Black Dog,” Swooz said.

In 2016, Woodcraft and Black Dog teamed up to create a paint line that would meet Swooz’s demanding standards: high adhesion and coverage, low VOC, self-leveling, minimal prep and true mixability. Three years later, we have added brushes and Show Dog Topcoat to the lineup.

With 16 richly pigmented stock colors to choose from, we have already shared 35 paint mixing recipes for even more color possibilities. Add in the 22 new recipes and the main pre-mixed hues and you have 73 colors from which to choose!

It is always recommended to protect your project with either Guard Dog or Show Dog topcoat, both available in pints/quarts and either satin or matte finish. Use non-yellowing Show Dog when covering white or another light color; when color is not an issue, we suggest using Guard Dog. 

Now, let’s check out the newest. Right click to save a recipe card on your phone or computer, or you can find all 57 Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint recipes in one handy downloadable document here

Colors shown here may differ slightly from the actual colors. See painted swatches at store locations for true color representation.
