unique original recipes give the paint the consistency of rich, creamy yogurt. It spreads like a dream, without splatter or dripping. As the world embraces the wave of eco-technology, we understand your quest for perfect color in paint. The same delicious characteristics spill over into Devine Color’s devinegreen Breathable Wall Finish™--99% VOC-Free. Devine paint sheens look and feel like liquid fabrics beckoning you to touch the walls long after they dry. Brush, roll, or spray! Once dried, our paint finishes are washable and worry free. Devine Color® is a full line of eco-friendly, user-friendly, green-sustainable products that meet the strict guidelines of the South Coast Air Quality Management District. All of our paint products have a VOC content less than 50g per liter minus water. We don’t walk on eggshells...

Sustainable Qualification Summary
Other ways we are ‘green’ you ask? With Devine Color you use less paint, make less color mistakes, you use less gas driving to the store to fix the color mistakes, it takes less water to clean up, we use existing manufacturing and transportation to export our line nationally. Instead of chips, we have finger-daubed paint palettes that last forever. Our Mini-Paint Pouch has the right amount of paint to test a color,with little clean up because you zip and pour. They fit in your purse, easy to carry in your hand so you don’t have to put them in a box or a bag. We also give free color advice and donate our eco-friendly paint to Portland’s Habitat for Humanity. We walk to work when we can and recycle always. We only get 150 words to say it all...

All I know is this is the only paint we use! Not to mention now that we've become familiar with seeing and using it, we can notice when its not Devine, and we can tell the difference. And for how much I love painting, only adding one coat is good to go!

Jonathan, go for the olive, the Devine Olive that is! Take a look at devinegreen: Peacock and devinegreen: Mantis as well. These warm greens are perfect with Devine Peanut. Love reading rave reviews...

I will never use another paint. The name says it all....absolutely devine in color and consistency. It goes on in one coat. It didn't smell. It dried quickly. I just loved it. I kept the extra paint for about 5 years and did touch ups literally using my finger and it blended perfectly. I even put two colors together and created my own, mixed it, and it was flawless. I LOVE this paint!!!

I recently painted my place using their Devine Green product. The painting was the easy part compared to the frustration of picking out a color. Indecisions, indecisions, indecisions.

I ended up going with their Peanut color after asking around for recommendations.

The paint has very little odor and is 99% VOC free so getting light headed from the fumes didn't happen at all. After it was all said and done, the paint was on the wall and the tape was removed. I must say that the project turned out pretty darn good! Taping is key!

It's definitely thick stuff and didn't splatter at all. So, now the next question is if I go with Olive for the bathroom...
