Artist Angela Leachman Puts Clear Topcoat Sealer to the Ultimate Test!

When it comes to decorative painting, there are very few surfaces that are off limits as far as artist Angela Leachman of Ruston, Louisiana is concerned!  Angela is well known for the vintage camp trailers that she beautifies with her unique, imaginative designs and outstanding artistic skill!  She calls them her “Glitzy Glampers” and after having worked her magic with her paint brush and Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan, Angela seals her extraordinary paint finishes with Artisan Enhancements Clear Topcoat Sealer!

At Artisan Enhancements, we are proud to offer earth friendly, sustainable, hypoallergenic art finishing products that expand the possibilities without exposure to harmful chemicals.  Clear Topcoat Sealer is a non-yellowing alkyd, exterior grade, penetrating sealer that dries to a beautiful matte finish.  Once fully cured, Clear Topcoat Sealer is water resistant.

When applying Clear Topcoat Sealer as the final sealer to your painted project, using a quality topcoat brush to ensure even coverage and minimize the appearance of brush strokes is important.  We recommend our 45mm Topcoat Brush which is mostly made of natural bristles but has a light blend of synthetic bristles to lessen the opportunities for brush strokes. This brush helps facilitate thin even coats, essential to successful Clear Topcoat Sealer application.

When Angela first applied Artisan Enhancements Clear Topcoat Sealer to her Glitzy Glampers, she put the sealer’s strength to the ultimate test!  Angela says that her Glitzy Glamper clients have confirmed what she believed from the start.  Clear Topcoat Sealer has performed well and protected the camper’s paint finishes through travel, rain and shine!

When Angela set out to paint her kitchen cabinetry, she naturally turned to the sealer that she trusted for her Glitzy Glampers to also protect her painted cabinets.  Angela admits that she was concerned about the heat exposure to the cabinetry surrounding the stove as well as from the sunlight that streams in through the kitchen window.  She knew that Clear Topcoat Sealer would stand up well to the heat and moisture that her cabinetry would come in contact with.  About 18 months after painting her cabinets in French Linen and sealing them with Clear Topcoat Sealer, Angela reports that she is still very happy with the paint finish!

Her beautiful fireplace surround, hand painted and embellished with Angela’s artistic touch is another surface that required careful thought when choosing an appropriate sealer.  Artisan Enhancements Clear Topcoat Sealer’s ability to hold up well to heat exposure makes it a great choice for fireplace mantles and surrounds.  Angela sealed her painted fireplace surround with Clear Topcoat Sealer, confident that it would keep her paint finish protected from wear and tear.  

Angela’s creativity doesn’t stop at vintage camp trailer makeovers and home beautification projects!  Empty freon tanks are repurposed and transformed into delightfully handcrafted light fixtures compliments of Angela’s vivid imagination and artistic talents!  

Clearly a lot of hard work and attention to detail goes into creating these beautiful and unique lamps.  Once again Angela trusts Clear Topcoat Sealer for a matte finish that will not only protect her paint finish but also hold up to heat exposure.
