Wise Owl OHE
(One Hour Enamel) Paint 


One Hour Enamel Paint also known as OHE, is an incredibly tough, tenacious, fast-drying acrylic enamel for interior and exterior use on surfaces that require a quick return to service and an abrasion-resistant finish. One Hour Enamel (OHE) is a total game-changer for both professionals and DIY’ers alike!  This water-based enamel formula is made primarily for Kitchen Cabinets and Front Doors, has a stone-like Satin topcoat built-in. It is a great choice for painting cabinets, trim, or updating exterior and interior doors.  This quick cure formula knocks out projects in record time.

Available in pints, with great coverage easy to use. That said we use on smoother pieces of furniture, not more rustic then we would use Chalk Synthesis Paint.

One Hour Enamel paint is available in many inspiring colours,  please note that colors will vary depending on your screen settings. If you require paint swatches or advise please contact us and we will be happy to help or send out to ensure an accurate color representation.

Wise Owl Paint™ Wisdom for PRO Results

  • Do not overwork. Lay down enough paint so that it has enough product to self-level but avoid drips.

  • Do not use Wax over Enamel.

  • The recommended recoat time is 2 hours.

  • Use our Stain Eliminating Primer before for superior adhesion.

  • Use a microfiber 3/16 inch roller.  If spraying, you may thin with water if needed but not more than 10%.

  • If using Glaze over Enamel, no need to use Varnish first. Apply glaze right over enamel. Must seal the glaze with Varnish or Clear OHE.

  • Do NOT use clear shellac as a primer with One Hour Enamel! It will cause the paint to crackle.
