Introducing Sue's Hues Porcelain Paint by Miss Lillians
the first furniture paint line with 8 pinks and only 1 Neutral!
After 12 years as a furniture artist I have dreamt of all the ways I would craft the perfect furniture paint. Well the time has come my friends. I have teamed up with the most amazing furniture paint line, Miss lillian's Chock Paint. We combined my color enthusiasm and Marilyn's mad scientist paint making skills to create a uniquely fabulous clay based paint specifically invented for furniture artists.

Sue's Hues in Action
So how are these paints different?
And how do you use them??
I'm glad you asked.
- Sue's Hues are a clay based paint and therefore dry quickly, can be mixed and layered and will reconsitute with water.
- Shake the bottle very well and pour out a small amount. A little goes a very long way.
- Use your brush of choice (I prefer a softer brush for the first coat). Paint on in circular up and down or stippling motions but do not try to get full coverage on the first pass.
- Let dry and add additional layers through your favorite painting techniques. Mix up colors to get the full advantage of the translucent paint qualities (think guache or watercolor)
- The shade of the paint that dries is lighter than the final shade. Spritz with water while painting to get a better idea of final color.
- To reactivate paint, mist with water and use a brush to move the top layers of paints around. (the longer you wait the harder the paint gets so keep this in mind) This will be harder to do after a few days.
- Once you get to your desired shade and opacity seal with Wicked Wax or your favorite sealant. Any will work.
- Use your mister to dilute the paint more if you want. Use Puddin Potion to make it thicker. This is a brand new paint so just experiment and have fun.

Introducing Sue's Wicked Wax
Unlike Miss Lillian's NO Wax paint, Sue's Hues is a clay-based furniture paint. Made from Porcelain Clay, it possesses a unique quality – the ability to reconstitute with water, even days after painting. This opens up endless blending and layering possibilities. However, keep in mind that this paint requires sealing.
To seal the deal, you have the freedom to use any topcoat you prefer. But here's the game-changer: Sue's Wicked Wax. Unlike water-based waxes, it remains crystal clear without any haze. Plus, it dries quickly and buffs to a hard shell.
Unleash the potential of Sue's Hues with the power of clay-based paint and wax.
Sue's Puddin Potion paint Thickener
If these paints are not enough of an exciting release, hold onto your hats my friends. We made a lot of choices in the paint recipe to lean the paint qualities towards ultimate blending and layering. For this reason Sue's Hues are more on the runny side and that is by design.
That being said, we know that sometimes you just need your paint to be thick. We get it. You want to emboss it, add texture, create raised stencils, etc…
We know you can use texture mediums to get a thicker consistency but those tend to wash out the color.
Sue's Puddin Potion to the rescue! Add a few drops of this to any of our paints and it will magically thicken the paint to any cosistancy that you desire.
Add a teaspoon per ounce and wait overnight or… if you are impatient, add a tablespoon and speed up the magic. Just know that it will keep on thickening so prepare what you need per project.
