Made In Canada
The FAT Paint Company is a CANADIAN company located in Langley, BC.
The FAT Paint Company began in 2012 when Victoria, an avid DIYer, and Bradford, an artist with mad skills brought their collective talents together. This artisan sibling duo sought to make versatile and easy to use chalk-style paint. It didn’t take long for their custom formula made by artisans, for artisans, to turn people certifiably inFATuated. What began in Victoria’s kitchen has now grown into a 2400 square foot production space located in New Westminster, BC, with over 110 retailers across North America.
In the fall of 2019 Lorenzo and Tracey from Urban Decor Centre took over the FAT Paint Company.
Artisan Chalk-Style Paint
The FAT Paint Company (TFPC) makes artisan chalk-style paint, NOT chalk paint. FAT Paint is a latex-based paint “FAT’n’d” up with a little bit of chalky minerals. Hence the clever name.
This chalk-style paint has great adhesion; it easily affixes to most porous surfaces like wood, glass, metal, plastic and fabric, and applies like a dream. It’s naturally smooth and creamy, covering most projects with just a couple of coats. The chalky nature of FAT Paint also means it dries quickly, leaving you more time to get creative with your finishes.
Another great thing about FAT Paint is that is low in VOCs. In fact, it’s lower than Canadian required industry standards which is FAT-tabulous! What exactly are VOCs? Well… let’s get all sciencey.
VOCs is an acronym for volatile organic compounds: organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at room temperature. Basically this means that large molecules in the chemicals easily evaporate into the air. These molecules are usually present for us humans by way of odors, but sometimes VOCs have no odor… and of course exposure to severe VOCs can cause eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches or – worse case senario - internal or central nervous system damage. Yucky stuff!
Because FAT Paint is extremely low in VOCs, little-to-no molecules are evaporating into the air and odors are minimal or non-existent. Most importantly of all, FAT Paint is safe to use for everyone; pregnant women and children included. Awesome!!
FAT Paint is soft and easy to sand, which makes the distressing process practically effortless! Most unwanted brush strokes can be sanded out, leaving nothing behind but a smooth, silky, soft-to-the touch.
