Saltwash was invented in 2010 by sun-kissed newlyweds Jaime and Carol Hunter in their small workshop on the coast of North Carolina. With the inspiration of the sea at their doorstep, Saltwash was born to recreate the layered sun-and-salt-air-soaked look common on seaside cottage porches and furniture. Saltwash powder is an easy-to-use, organic additive made with all-natural sea salt. A base-coat formula, it is used to create a layered and textured effect when mixed with any brand or type of paint. Apply the mixture to any piece of furniture or surface to achieve an authentic timeworn look, as if weathered from years on the coast or in the barn, in just a few easy steps. Saltwash powder is ideal for both interior and exterior surface and adheres to any surface from wood, laminate, glass, fabric, plastic and more. It is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and contains no VOCs.
