DIY paint is a fantastic all natural clay based paint richly saturated with beautiful pigments
You already know we carry only the finest quality products here at Shizzle and DIY is no exception. Debi’s DIY Paint is an all natural clay based paint handcrafted in the U.S.A. It adheres incredibly well to most surfaces without the need to strip, sand or prime so you can simply clean your piece and start painting.
When I say clean, you want to make sure you remove any grease, oil or years of Pledge build up prior to painting. We offer an excellent all natural cleaner here at Shizzle but you can also use Vinegar, Dawn dish soap, Simple Green or Phosphorus Free TSP.
There are rare situations where you might want to give your piece a quick, 5 minute scuff up but as I rule, I only scuff things up on very rare occasions. If you’re ever on the fence about whether your particular piece needs it, email a picture to me or give me a call and I can help you out.
So how is DIY different than our other lines?
DIY is a bit more thin so it spreads on quickly and easily. This allows it to level out beautifully yet the coverage is still fantastic because it’s so highly pigmented. There’s just something different about this paint. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but the ease of layering colors with DIY is almost magical.
I not only love DIY because it’s an amazing paint, I love the entire package because of the people within this amazing company. Friendships here are woven deeply and there is mutual respect and support stemming from the Owner. Debi works hard and is so incredibly supportive to each and every one of her retailers and everyone else in between. That respect goes in all directions as I’ve never been part of such a great network of women supporting and helping other women. There are so many fun things going on behind the scenes. I can’t wait to share some of them with you in the near future but for now… let me share with you the beautiful paint colors of DIY.
Bead Board is a white white with gray undertones which make it a bit cooler than White Swan
Black Velvet is an “almost black” graphite/slate type color
Bohemian Blue is currently the number one selling paint color at DIY and for good reason, just look at it!
Crinoline is a creamy warm white
Do this technique on metal hardware!
It only took a few seconds to accomplish this paint finish using DIY’s Crinoline.
This is a great green ~ I’ll never tire of blending blues and greens
Is this combo delish or what?? Drooling!!!
Farm Fresh is so gorgeous!!! Love this color!
I sealed this with Clear Wax but I must have still had some white wax on the bristles because there’s just a hint of white in the grooves.
Gypsy Green is a bit deeper, darker and warmer in tone than Fancy Farm Girl. It has more brown undertones whereas Fancy Farmgirl is more bold and vibrant.
This is another hot selling blue ~ rich and boldly pigmented (this looks a little brighter in the picture than in person)
How fun is this? Have you ever done a paint pour? It’s so much fun!
Yep, definitely had a little white wax on my brush when I sealed these. It’s mostly clear wax but I was double dipping the day I made these
This is the blacker of the two blacks ~ a true black
I mixed blended a little Golden Ticket over the Marquee to create this!
Mermaid Tail is a beautiful blue, richly saturated with warm undertones
Crinoline over Old School & Old ’57 over Fancy Farm Girl
Did I mention I like Old ’57?
Old School brushed w Crinoline sealed with Clear, Dark, White & Black Wax
Old School – drying
This one has been flying off the shelves as well
Need I say more? So feminine and pretty!
Check out this combo!
This is gorgeous!!! Great alone and as a mixer!
Sea Glass is another stunning blue!
Skeleton Key is a rich, frenchy gray-green color
I remember my first love, do you?
I LOVE Weathered Wood!
White Swan is the whitest of the whites, it’s similar to Bead Board but White Swan has warmer undertones. Bead Board is more cool.
Clear Brush on or Sponge on Top Coat
Rich espresso brown wax
Still my favorite fine quality paint brush for chalk & clay paints. We retail these brushes here at Shizzle but are the U.S. distributor for Vintiquities. If you are a shop owner or have a booth within a multi-vending store and would like to carry Vintiquities brushes in your location, give me a shout. Learn why they’re still our favorite here

Finishes – fun glazes and patinas
There are so many fun things you can create using Golden Ticket. I like to mix mine with a little Dark & Decrepit liquid Patina and a dash of Marquee to create my own, personal Copper Patina.
