Preparation

Remove any loose and flaking material then fill holes and cracks with an appropriate filler. Glossy surfaces should be sanded to provide a key. Given the high quality of this formulation, the paint can be thinned if required by adding up to 10% water for the first coat only. This is particularly recommended for porous surfaces.

Application

Stir well before use. Always check a small area first as we cannot accept any responsibility  for colour discrepancy that may arise after use.  Apply one or more coats as required using a paintbrush, paint pad or roller. Avoid spreading the paint too thinly and avoid reworking areas that are still wet. An extra coat may be required to cover strong or contrasting colours. Do not apply in damp or cold conditions below 10°C.

VOC Content

This product is VOC-free.  

Job Done!

Touch dry in 1-2 hours. Recoatable in 2-4 hours. Replace lid firmly to ensure an airtight seal. Remove as much paint as possible from decorating tools before cleaning in warm soapy water, then rinse and dry thoroughly. Do not empty surplus paint into drains and watercourses - most local authorities will have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings and paint, contact them for details. Allow to dry for at least 7 days after application before wiping the surface. Clean painted surface with a soft cloth and clean soapy water.

Four beautiful odourless paint finishes

Matte

For a solid, flat and elegant finish that is easy to touch up when required, matte paint is ideal for creating a gentle, soothing finish.  It helps to conceal flaws too, making it a good choice for older walls with "character".

Eggshell

Has slightly more lustre than a matte finish, low-sheen rather than shiny.  This attractive finish resists stains better than matte paint, and is easier to maintain

Silk

Creates an attractive and highly durable high sheen finish, an ideal choice if you want to make a room look bigger.  While it is the easiest to clean (just wipe with a damp cloth) Silk paint’s light reflecting properties do make it more difficult to touch up because any difference in sheen will be apparent.  It will make imperfections in your walls more noticeable, so it is worth investing a bit of extra time on surface preparation to make your walls as smooth as possible.  

Gloss

Even our gloss paint is zero-VOC! An easy-to-apply, non-drip antibacterial gloss paint that provides a hardwearing, wipe-clean finish for interior and exterior wood and metal.  (Please note, the gloss does not share the formaldehyde-absorbing properties of the emulsion paint, but there's still no safer gloss paint on the market!)
