water based top coat

Our TopCoat

Couture Topcoat is a low VOC, clear, non-yellowing, and very durable topcoat. It is a very easy to use, water based product. Couture Topcoat may be applied directly on top of Paint Couture Paint and Glaze. Use it to add a durable finish over chalk or milk paints. This product dries very fast and produces a very hard finish. It also provides excellent resistance to water, and adds durability. It is highly recommended for use on kitchen cabinets. It is available in four sheen levels (Dead Flat, Flat, Satin and Semi-Gloss). And, unlike so many other Topcoats available there is little to no odor with Couture Topcoat.

3 Simple steps


Local Makers & Artisans

Prep! Our paint requires very little prep depending on the surface you’re working with. A light scuff with 220 grit sand paper, and a good cleaning with Krud Cutter is our recommendation for more pieces.


Free Local SHipping

Get painting! Generally two coats will do the trick, some colors may require three depending on desired coverage. 


Money Back Guarantee

Finish! Our paint does not require a topcoat but is recommended for ultimate durability. You may choose to apply a glaze at this point for an antiqued look. Our glazes also serve as a topcoat. 

Alternate Uses!

You may think that Topcoat is only used for finishing your piece and sealing in your hard work. There are other ways you can put your topcoat to use though! Before glazing, to give yourself more working time, seal your piece with Flat or Satin. This seals in your paint color for a lighter glaze application or if you’re only looking to get the glaze down in the details of your project.
Another way to use topcoat is if you’re looking to layer colors and distress back through to your base coat. After painting your first color (the color you want to show through when you distress) apply one layer of topcoat to protect it from pulling up when you distress.

As a professional furniture painter and a retailer, I highly recommend Paint Couture Topcoats. Easy to use, extremely durable, and wonderful application. I use it on all my custom and resale furniture and products.
