Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint is a water-based, low VOC, matte finish paint originally developed for our custom design shop. Our goal was to create a safe and easy to use paint that is customizable for our, and now your, furniture projects. Made in small batches in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, our paint line includes 16 premixed colors, including a true black and white, affording you the ability to mix custom tints and shades. There is no limit to the colors you can create. Black Dog Furniture Paint dries to a velvety, smooth, matte finish and can be used on a multitude of surfaces, including glass, metal, wood, and ceramics. Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint can be applied over paint, varnish, lacquer, or poly. Apply the paint to a clean, smooth surface using either the brush of your choice or a paint sprayer. Easily create distressed effects, washes, or bright bold contemporary finishes with our expandable palette.
