Fired Earth Tuscan Coat is an elegant paint option for both indoors and outdoors.
Tuscan Coat is one of these timeless classics, available in six natural pastel hues, giving a subtle texture to the wall. It is another quality paint offering from Fired Earth – a premium light sandstone textured acrylic coating with a delightful natural matt finish. It is both UV and all-weather resistant and also exhibits outstanding adhesion on properly prepared surfaces, with minimum odour on application. It also has 10-year guarantee, which indicates the sort of quality it offers.
While Tuscan Coat is designed for walls, it can also be used on your wooden skirtings as long as you use a wood primer beforehand.
Prep and application
If you’re gearing up for a painting project, taking the time to prepare your surfaces properly can make all the difference in achieving a flawless finish.
Before you even think about picking up a paintbrush, have a close look at your walls. If they’re dirty or grimy, it’s crucial to clean them thoroughly and sugar soap is a fantastic product for this task. Follow the instructions on the pack and get scrubbing. It will help to remove grime and dust, creating a smooth surface for your paint to adhere to. After cleaning, wipe down the walls with a cloth and clean water, then allow the area to dry completely.
To ensure a professional finish, it’s best to remove curtain rails, plug points and light switches that have removable covers before you start painting. This prevents unsightly blocks or touch-up marks. Masking off areas you don’t want to paint and along the ceiling where walls meet the ceiling, will give you clean lines and a polished look. Proper preparation is the key to a successful painting project, so take your time and do it right.
And that’s it – with a quality paint like Tuscan Coat from Fired Earth, you can give your home a timeless appeal in just a day. Remember, Fired Earth paints and painting products are stocked by Builders, both in-store and online at builders.co.za.
