Bunty’s is BACK!

Bunty’s is BACK!

Words I never thought I’d type… Bunty’s is back! This much beloved paint brand has been revived by Amanda Huxtable of Horsefair Vintage, someone well-versed in paint creation as the founder of the Authentic Paint Company.

If you recall, the original Bunty’s unfortunately had to cease trading back in August 2023, due to undue market pressures and has been sorely missed! Fantastic quality UK-made paint at an incredible price point is a rarity so Bunty’s return is truly a time to rejoice!

It retains it’s original brilliant base, the core of what makes this paint so easy to use but has actually been improved by using more highly pigmented liquid colour pigments (as supposed to powder) and a new fresh colour palette.

There are 36 fab colours, two lacquers and super exciting… decoupage glue to follow! ‘Old’ Bunty’s Decoupage Glue & Finish sold like hot cakes so I couldn’t help but request its return too please and Amanda is very kindly obliging!

Which colour calls to you? I’ve fallen in love with Prophets Green and Delft Blue, both are divine!

New Year, New Brands!

New Year, New Brands!

Hello to 2024 and it’s all change at LWB HQ… we’ve said goodbye to two brands and hello to two!

Last Autumn brought with it the shocking news that Bunty’s was to cease trading due to undue market pressures, such a sad end to a truly fabulous family-run brand, and a change of terms at Cornish Milk Mineral Paint meant we had to say adieu.

It has however provided the opportunity to stock two more amazing UK brands, It’s So Chic Furniture Art and PolyOnlay!

Cindy of It’s So Chic is a multi-award winning Furniture Refinishing Artist and in her spare(!) time, created an incredible supplementary range of products, from decoupage papers and stencils to her newest and trademarked product, Furniture Tattoos®️. It’s such a huge range they’re not all listed as yet so if you want something you can’t see, please get in touch! Personal faves are the animal-as-people decoupage papers, so fun and quirky and such good quality, they can be framed as art work for your wall!

PolyOnlay I first encountered back in 2021 at the very first Furniture Painting Business Conference and it stuck in my mind as such a great product, I’m so happy to add it to Little White Bird’s offering. This clever product is an innovative type of onlay (appliqué) made from very strong and flexible wood pulp product and yet only 0.9mm thick! They’re water-resistant, work with any medium and flexible… ideal for adding embellishments to furniture, craft projects or art work. So you can add art deco corners to cupboards, decorative trim to fascia or fun shapes to enhance your arts and crafts projects!
