Use Marzipan as a neutral base colour, then simply choose your complementing Vintage Prestige colour(s) to finish!
Calm tones of mid-grey that resemble crushed almonds make for an inviting finish. Marzipan is crisp, clean and makes the perfect neutral basecoat for your Shabby Chic upcycling project. Mix with contrasting colours to create an array of unique effects.
We recommend ordering a Colour Chart for a completely accurate colour representation.

No primer is required before using this product.
Shabby Chic, Distressed, Pickled and Ethnic finishes can be achieved. For a two tone effect:
Choose two colours from the colour range. Apply the base colour using a synthetic bristle brush, such as our Prodec Premier Synthetic Paint Brush or roller application, using a medium pile woven polyester roller, such as our Rodo Tiger Medium Pile Mini Rollers to create texture.
Once the base colour is dry, use a clean Synthetic Bristle Brush to apply the second colour. Avoid painting on too thick. Too thick is harder it is to sand back later.
Once dry, add a coat of Rio Verde Clear Decorative Oil. Remove any excess wax using a lint-free cloth.
Once the oil is dry to touch, but hasn’t hardened, you can start sanding. For manual sanding, use 6120 sia fleece handpads 180 - 320 Grit. Remove the top coat of paint to reveal the colour beneath. Select pad type depending on the furniture and how distressed you want your paint work.
Finally, apply a coat of Rio Verde Clear Decorative Oil. This will seal and protect the paint.
Optionally protect with Rio Verde Clear Decorative Oil.
