Where can I learn about your products?

For more information on specific products, please visit the specific product pages in our store by finding the product in the sidebar.

Do you have to use a special brush cleaner with the Gloss Enamels line?

All of our paints are acrylic, meaning that they can be cleaned with water, soap and water, or our own DecoMagic Brush Cleaner. Do not use solvent-based products like mineral spirits to clean your brushes when using Americana Gloss Enamels or any of our other paints.

Are your paints dishwasher-safe?

All paints in the Gloss Enamels, Multi-Surface, and Chalky Finish for Glass lines are dishwasher-safe when baked according to directions.

What paints can I use outside?

Our Patio Paint Outdoor and Multi-Surface lines are formulated to work outside without a sealer. They come in sizes specifically designed for smaller craft and home décor projects. However, do not use these paints inside a birdbath, fountain, or pool, because they are not meant to be used under standing water.

Where are your products made?

Our paints and mediums are formulated, tested, made, bottled, and labeled in the USA.

How long has DecoArt, Inc. been in business?

DecoArt was launched in 1985 as a division of Ceramichrome. Artists in the craft industry kept contacting the company saying how much better the ceramics branded acrylic color was than other offerings on the market. In 1997, Ceramichrome was sold to Coloramics LLP and the company's name was officially changed to DecoArt, Inc. At that time, the Americana line had become one of the primary acrylic paints available and the product offerings had drastically expanded. The company continues to grow and expand its international reach.

How many locations do you have?

DecoArt now has three locations in Central Kentucky. Our 115,000 square foot facility in Stanford, Kentucky, serves as our paint manufacturing headquarters. It is also home to most of our corporate offices. In 2015, DecoArt opened a Creative Center in Lexington, Kentucky. This creative hub allowed for our product development, marketing, and design teams to have a state-of-the-art space designed for increased collaboration and inspiration. In 2016, DecoArt expanded to our third location in Danville, Kentucky. This 88,000 square foot distribution center allows our team to meet customer demands, shipping our more than 3,500 products around the globe.

How many people do you employ?

We have over 150 team members throughout our three facilities who support our company initiatives. Please check out our Career Opportunities page to learn more about joining our team.
