  • Easy to use and water clean-up.
  • Adheres to most surfaces providing they are clean and do not have any waxes or polishes on them.
  • Works well as a Primer / Bonding undercoat but also contains plenty of acrylic resin to protect as a Furniture and Craft Paint.
  • Universal White is easily tinted with just a little dab of CraftNique Color Boutique Concentrated Colors to make endless color combinations.
  • Use the Crystalac CraftNique Recipe book for easy to make standard colors or be creative and make your own colors.
  • ​Universal White self-levels and won’t turn yellow with age. 

Universal White Mixing and Application Ideas

  • For Stain Blocking Primer, use straight as is.
  • Add Color Boutique Colors and you’ve got a great full coverage furniture paint.
  • Make your own Chalk Paint by adding a little calcium carbonate.
  • For White Wash – Mix 1 part Universal White to 3 parts of any CrystaLac Top Coat. Add a little Color Boutique Concentrated Pigment to that and you’ve got a Colored Wash.
  • For White Satin or Matte Top Coat - Mix half and half Universal White with CrystaLac Super Premium Satin or Matte, or CrystaLac Polyurethane Satin.

All CrystaLac products (including Stains) can be intermixed with each other to create endless color and topcoat possibilities.

Can be purchased as part of the Crystalac Tumbler Kit .

Instructions for Use:

Brush Universal White onto a clean, wax free, scuff sanded surface using thin, even coats. Sand lightly with 400 grit sandpaper to smooth out any pigment particles. Allow 2 to 4 hours drying time between each coat and topcoats. Do not use stearated sandpaper or tack cloths. To spray, it may be necessary to thin Universal White with CrystaLac Viscosity Reducer/Retarder – which will thin and also extend the dry time.

About the Crystalac Company and Becker Labs:

Derek Becker went to paint school in San Francisco, CA where he learned how to formulate all kinds of coatings. He worked as Head Chemist and Formulator for several companies before Crystalac was born.

The family owned and operated business all started in a barn in Candler, Florida. The barn is where all the magical formulations began. Not only did Derek make paint, he made all the mixing equipment and machinery to make his batches with.

He had a successful business going, supplying paint and finishes to several local companies, when decided in 1989 to move to Mountain City, Tennessee and opened up their family business called Becker Labs. That is where the manufacturing plant for CrystaLac products was built and is still operating.

The company is now run by Dorinda, the youngest daughter of Derek who has been working along side her father for the past 18 years and now carries on the family brand.

CrystaLac CraftNique products are made with the highest quality ingredients and everything is environmentally safe! Making all Eco Friendly products that are easy to use and extremely durable plus great customer service, has always been top priority for the company.

All CrystaLac products (including Stains) can be intermixed with each other to create endless color and topcoat possibilities.
