Dixie Belle Paints – Antebellum Blue is a gorgeous dark teal color. Before this color came out, I wanted one like it so bad, so I did a 50 / 50 mix of Bunker Hill Blue and Mermaid Tail, and THIS IS IT!! No more mixing, and I can have all of this beautiful color that I want!! This is a color that has amazing coverage, too.
Why use Dixie Belle? Many people ask me why I chose Dixie Belle over other brands. Dixie Belle Paint is an awesome chalky paint, with a hint of acrylic for great self leveling properties and awesome durability. It’s easy to mix colors to create new colors, layer colors, and blend. Back when I was testing paints, I painted a couple of side tables in Dixie Belle. A huge storm blew in, so I locked up my studio and went home to wait it out. A few days later I went down to topcoat the tables, and found that the roof had leaked all over the top of one of the tables, and then dried there, leaving a huge mark. Of course I panicked, went to pick up the table and promptly droppe it on the other table! Not only did the paint hold up where I dropped the table, but the watermark left by the leak, wiped away. I still have those tables and they’re still amazing.
