Using Krylon’s New Sea Glass Paint

One of the greatest new DIY spray paints around is Krylon’s Sea Glass Spray Paint.  It’s not only easy to use but the amount of projects that can be created is endless!  Krylon Sea Glass spray paint will give any clear glass surface a refined, beach-inspired look while having excellent adhesion and durability. The finish after application will look as if your glass was tumbled smooth and matte by the seas waves.

Revamping vases bought at Goodwill and simply painting them is a great start and a perfect way to learn how to use the paint with little investment, but we aren’t happy with just painting a vase.  We have found a bunch of alternative ways online to use the paint and for you to add our own personal touches.

Check out the different projects below, find what intrigues you and drop on by one of our stores to pick up some Krylon Sea Glass Spray Paint.

Painting Camouflage with Krylon Spray Paint

Don’t get spotted in the wild!  Just in time to prepare for the upcoming hunting seasons we have Krylon Camouflage Paint made with Fusion for Plastic® Technology that can assist you in staying out of sight and achieving your the best shot possible.

Available at both stores in 4 colors (Camo Green, Camo Khaki, Camo Brown and Camo Black) and @ $6.78 a spray can.

Camouflage is all about gaining an advantage over the target by blending into the environment, giving you the greatest advantage at being successful.  There are countless patterns of camouflage meant to blend into your terrain and vegetation but stick to mimicking the environment you’re hunting in.  It doesn’t make much sense to use camouflage on clothing and equipment but leave out  your gun.

Below is an easy way to accomplish a custom camouflaged gun for any terrain.

You can paint camouflage using the instructions on the video below from the YouTube channel InnerBark Outdoors to paint coolers, vehicles, firearms, and more! Want to know more about InnerBark Outdoors? Visit their website HERE and follow them on social media!

Camouflage Painting Tips

  • The best way to camouflage an object is to match it to the surroundings in which it will be located
  • Use colors in the same family that work well together
  • Start painting with the lightest color and move to the darkest color
  • Look to nature and use local tree leaves, ferns and branches as your stencils
  • Take your time. Let coats fully dry! Since there is a lot of overlapping, small mistakes won’t show
  • As with any spray paint, use several light coats instead of one heavy coat
  • Always read the directions before applying the spray paint

Angeles Millwork Becomes Premier SIPs Dealer

To fill the client’s desire for SIPS on a custom Ked-Ter Construction Inc. home,  Angeles Millwork has become a preferred dealer of Premier SIPS (Structural Insulated Panels).  The anatomy of a Premier SIP  is a composite of three materials.  OSB, InsulFoam EPS and a Laminating Adhesive. SIPS will be a welcome addition to our quality building products and will allow homeowners and contractors the ability to build homes and commercial buildings with the potential to save money on labor and create stronger, more energy efficient structures.

Stronger.

Imagine buildings with large soaring roof lines, open vaulted ceilings and no truss system. When buildings are constructed with Premier SIP roofs, the roof structure alone is strong enough that it doesn’t need an engineered truss system.  Without the need for trusses, Architects and Designers have the opportunity to use their design creativity like never before.

The strength of a Premier SIPS structure gives building owners peace of mind that their new home or building is strong enough to last for years to come. Just ask the Premier SIPS homeowners who survived the Kobe, Japan earthquake (6.5 magnitude) in the 1980’s.  Their Structural Insulated Panel framed buildings were some of the few that remained standing after this earthquake.

Straighter.

Premier SIPS are delivered to the jobsite pre-cut ready for assembly. The large wall, roof and floor panels can be installed much like a puzzle.  The speedy installation not only saves builders time in the framing process, but the straight panels offer features that save other subcontractors hours (and even days) in their trades.

Straighter wall and floor panels mean the walls do not bow and curve, ensure faster installation of cabinets and counter tops, enable flooring contractors to lay tile, wood and other flooring products…all without the need of endless shimming and cutting. Straight walls help doors, windows and millwork go into place seamlessly, and offer lighting experts a flat surface to showcase interior lighting effects on a flat surface. And don’t forget the building and homeowners, who are able to display art and photographs on flat walls that do not bow or bend.

Greener.

The environmental benefits of choosing Premier Structural Insulated products are huge. As if significantly lower energy bills and reduced jobsite construction waste wasn’t enough to convince you that Premier SIPS are the cream of the “green” building products available today.  Then consider that Premier SIPS offer the use of materials made from rapidly renewable resources, better indoor air quality and temperature control and available tax credits & environmental certifications for the builder and homeowners.  We think you’ll agree that Premier SIPS are one of the best environmental framing products on the market.

SIPS Advantages to the Home Owner

  • Structurally Superior: Compared to non-engineered 2×6″ lumber.
  • Sound Investment: Appraisers now recognize advanced building materials and sustainable features in home values.
  • Strong Warranty Offers Peace of Mind (you won’t see this with stick framed lumber).
  • Reduced Heating/Cooling Costs: Up to 60% less!
  • Better for the Environment: Less energy used, reduces green house gas emissions.
  • Healthier Home Environments: Large panels with far fewer joints than stick framed construction mean fewer pollutants are able to enter the walls.
  • Indoor Air Quality (IAQ):  Tighter and better insulated structures enable the occupants to regulate the air quality with simple ventilation techniques.
  • Faster construction time: SIP panels come precut from the factory per your custom plans.  Much like a jig saw puzzle, SIPs are installed in days rather than weeks.  Therefore, a SIPs house can be dried in and ready for siding/roofing much faster than traditional 2×6 framed construction and batt insulation.

Check out the first eleven minutes of the video below shows the production of SIPS and tests their ability to hold up to loads, sheer and storm damage.

Introducing Pratt & Lambert Paint

Learn why we're changing our paint line to Pratt & Lambert Paint!

Learn why we’re changing our paint line to Pratt & Lambert Paint!

Dear Friends and Partners,                  

As many of you are well aware, our stores have begun the conversion away from Parker Paint and Valspar toward a brand, Pratt & Lambert, that we feel gives us the best opportunity to serve you with the quality and value that you have come to expect from us.  The frequently asked questions below provide details to help understand why the change was made, and necessary.

What happened to Parker Paint?

Parker Paint was a subsidiary of the Comex Group that was sold to Sherwin Williams.  Sherwin Williams decided to confine the Parker Paint line, in limited scope, to their factory stores.  Dealers like us are no longer allowed to sell the line after January 1, 2015.

Can we still sell Parker and Valspar Paints?

Beginning January 1, 2015 we are no longer able to restock our Parker Paint inventory and we will be limited to the products we already have on hand.  Valspar paint will still be available to us through our dealer network but we will be unable to formulate Valspar colors due to the change in our colorants to match our new Pratt & Lambert line.

Why did you choose Pratt & Lambert?

By partnering with Pratt & Lambert we are able to acquire upgraded MatchRite© software which puts us on par with specialty paint retailers for color accuracy and efficient service.  The second part of the Pratt & Lambert choice is their extensive product offering that we can make available to our customers.  With a broader range of products offered by P&L we can serve our customers with the right product every time given the quality, budget, and scope of any project.

Can we provide the service and support our customers need?

Yes! With the conversion of paint lines and an upgrade in our offering we are fully committed to staffing dedicated and knowledgeable paint specialists at each location with back up as needed.  Our staff is being trained by the team at Pratt & Lambert and will continue to be supported by their local representative, Jolene Holzhauer.  We have also retained the skills of an in-house paint expert with many years of industry experience to work between the stores and on call as needed to support our team.

Will we have sufficient inventory to supply the needs of our customers, especially during the busy season?

Yes! Between both of our stores we have committed more than $70,000 in paint inventory.  Through our discussions with Pratt & Lambert, we have commitments from them to send a truck here as needed to fill special orders with a two day turnaround time.  While a properly-managed, front-side inventory should keep you painting all season long, we can cover your big jobs pretty easily as well based on our buying cycle.

Are we going to keep any specialty products?

Yes! Based on our desire to be your one-stop paint source in Port Angeles, we have committed to several specialty product lines such as Dry Fall, Direct-to-Metal (DTM), and industrial coatings.  We also have access to the complete line of epoxy based products or anything else offered by Pratt & Lambert.

Are we missing something? 

If we are and you need it, please let us know right away.

We look forward to serving you and being your one stop shop for everything paint!
