The best way to order is to buy just a little extra for future touch up's (and if you use a little more than anticipated)! For figuring out quantities you'll want a tape measure. Paint quantity is measured by surface area so you'll need to know the approximate surface area you'll be painting. 


Here's how that is done: Measure length of the surface area and multiply that number by the height. This will give you the "square feet" number to know how many gallons you'll need. 


10 feet length X (times) 10 feet height = (equals) 100 square feet. Each gallon of our paint covers approximately 360 square feet of surface.

While our paints are considered self-priming, a quality primer layer is a great way to ensure that you are starting with a good base. Thrive Natural Primer is the best way to start a painting project with Thrive Paints for the best final results.


You must still prepare the surface properly for painting and our primer is not a sealing primer. This means that it will not seal materials such as wood tannins or oils. You will need a special sealing primer to prepare or spot-prime such surfaces prior to priming with our general purpose primer. 

We do not add algicides, mildewcides, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or preservatives that are commonly found in conventional products. James Alexander Thrive products discourage the growth of mold, mildew, or other fungi by the mechanism of being a breathable coating and not trapping moisture. High moisture spaces, such as bathrooms or homes in humid climates should maintain proper ventilation.
We do not recommend using Thrive Interior Paint for floors, countertops, or areas that may experience water pooling.
