Raw Silk by Fusion Mineral: a classic warm white

One of the first Fusion Mineral paint colors I ever tried was Raw Silk. I love neutrals, hence the name “White and Woodgrain”. I was on the hunt for a creamy white paint color for a piece of furniture I was making over, and Raw Silk is what I went with. It did not disappoint, and it’s been a go to white for me ever since!

According to Fusion Mineral Paint, Raw Silk is “a delicate white inspired by the natural luxury of raw silk. This classic warm white adds dimension to any color scheme.”

My take on Raw Silk is that it’s the perfect warm white paint color! It’s a creamy off-white warm paint color, but when I say creamy know that it’s not overly yellow. Raw Silk is a great color if you’re going for an “antique-white” kind of look. It’s a white that works really well on older pieces of furniture, complementing the age of the piece with its warm undertones.

How Does Raw Silk Compare to the Other Warm Whites from Fusion Mineral Paint

I am the type of person who needs to see multiple color options before I can make my final decision! Maybe that’s you too? I created a few tester pieces below that would help me see the difference between all the warm whites from Fusion Mineral Paint. So if you’re like me and you like to see all the options before making your decision, here is a side by side view of all 4 warm white paint colors from Fusion Mineral. You’ll notice that Fusion’s Raw Silk is the lightest color of the warm whites below.

Past DIY’s and Paint Projects using Fusion Mineral Paint’s Raw Silk

There are so many different Fusion Mineral paint colors, especially when it comes to all the Fusion Mineral whites. So it can make it a bit of a challenge to choose the perfect paint color for your next DIY project. Sometimes, the easiest way to choose a paint color is to see inspo photos of a particular color in someone else’s home… Photos of a room or a piece of furniture painted in that color. Let me show you a few past DIY’s and paint projects of mine here at the farmhouse featuring Raw Silk by Fusion Mineral.

Farmhouse Style Upholstered Headboard

Our headboard got a big makeover a while back! (Click here to see the before and more after photos of the headboard makeover project in a previous blog post. I’m always amazed what a little paint can do for an outdated piece of furniture!) I recovered the faux leather part of the headboard with painters drop cloth. Then I primed and painted the wood parts of the headboard in the color Raw Silk. I love how the warmth of Raw Silk pairs with the texture of the drop cloth part of the headboard. It adds just enough dimension and contrast to the piece.

White Farmhouse Trestle Table

There was a lot of wood in our dining room area. I mean a lot! We had wood floors, a wood dining table, wood chairs, and one of the walls in this space is all reclaimed wood from the old house. It was a lot of wood! So I decided to break it all up by painting our dining room table with Fusion Mineral’s Raw Silk. Here’s a peek at how the table looks now. While Fusion Mineral Paint does come with a built-in top coat, I sealed the top of the dining table to make it extra durable for daily use.

Re-Painted China Hutch

This painted hutch used to be black, and I wanted to brighten it up a bit. Another perfect job for Raw Silk! It took 3 coats to get full coverage since I was going from a super dark color to white, but it was well worth it. If I had to do it all over again, this is a piece I would have primed first so that it didn’t use up as much paint. Normally 1-2 coats is all you ever need with Fusion Mineral Paint. I love how my Great Grandmother’s antique china collection looks on this piece!
