American Paint Company prides themselves in making the healthiest paint available for the DIY furniture painter while staying on trend with the home decor market.  With the addition of the new chalk & clay colors from American Home, American Paint Company is retiring 15 older colors.  They are also moving eight of the pint size Ellis Collection colors to the main line which means those 8 colors will be available in quarts & samples and the pint sizes will be phased out.  The other four have been retired and are on sale now here.

  1. I absolutely love your website , and all your blogs! I’m in Florida, and paint as well & building a following! Someday holding to have my own studio! I really like the American chalk paint line and I recently used voyage & love the color. Is that remaining in line & how do I go about ordering pint from you? Thank you so much for all of your inspiration !!
