Yes, you may paint over American Clay. It breaks my heart that anyone would want to do that!! However, if you put two coats of our Penetrating Sealer on the clay first, you may paint over it. Mix the sealer 50% water and 50% sealer. Mist it on the wall, letting it dry between coats. What the sealer does is give a surface that will not absorb all the moisture out of any paint you apply. Since the clay is so absorbent, it will always absorb moisture unless you seal it with the penetrating sealer. Keep in mind; you can also put another coat of American clay over any unsealed clay, if all you want to do is change color. If you want to add another coat to sealed clay or clay with lime, please call us before proceeding.
As a lot of you know, I am (more or less) semi-retired now. Because of the move to our new facility, however I will pretty much be full time for a month or so. I told Croft that it will take a pretty big scoop to get me out of here permanently!! I’m also pretty sure the phone will have to be surgically removed from my ear!! I really love each and every one of you, and it will be very hard for me to completely retire. So many of you have become very good friends over the years. Fear not, though, I will hopefully still be around for quite a while.
I hope your May has many beautiful flowers!! Until next month, as always, Happy Claying!!
