Our Extender is great for those who want a longer open time with the paint, to help minimize the look of brush strokes and to extend drying time.

Painting in a dry climate or a space with low humidity? You may find your paint dries too fast. Buy yourself time with our uniquely formulated non-toxic extender � simply add it to the paint and you�ll have more time to brush back and forth to get the look you�re after!

The recommended ratio of 15 mL per pint (500 mL) of paint.

Using too much of this product will increase drying time substantially, but also increases cure time.

  • Coverage

    1 bottle is good for 2-4 pints of paint. Adding more is not recommended as it will impact your drying and curing time.
  • Directions

    Add 15ml to 500ml of paint. Once mixed with Fusion&Trade; Mineral Paint, apply paint as usual. You will notice a longer open drying time, thus giving you time to work with the paint and smooth out brush strokes.

    Once your first coat fully dries, apply a subsequent coat as needed. We recommend waiting a minimum of 4 hours between coats when using the Extender. Do not reapply prior to the first coat being fully dry.

    Can the Extender be used with other paint brands?

    The Extender is specifically formulated to work with Fusion Mineral Paint and is recommended for use with this particular brand. It may not provide the same results when used with other paint brands, so we recommend consulting the manufacturer's instructions or conducting a small test before using it with a different paint.

    The recommended starting ratio is 15ml Extender to 500ml paint (3% Extender to paint). However, you can adjust the amount based on your desired workability and drying time. It's best to experiment with small batches and test the consistency and performance before applying the mixture to your project.

    When used as directed, the Extender does not compromise the durability or longevity of Fusion Mineral Paint. It maintains the same excellent adhesion and durability properties as the paint itself, ensuring a long-lasting and resilient finish.
