A beautiful classic paint recipe that is timeless, light, airy and neutral. A popular go-to for our customers utilising grey and white and creating a soft neutral and versatile finish.

Dove is a beautiful soft grey and with a Crystal coloured wax it creates a beautiful limed patina and effect that is classic and timeless with a strong nod to the french look.

The two combinations of colours are easy to dress around and a great finish if you are looking at softening a piece, for your interior space. A finish that looks complicated but very easy to achieve for beginners. 

Any of our experienced retailers for The Artisan Company will be able to demonstrate this finish in their physical store for you. Just save the image or bookmark this page on your device and take it in and ask for a complimentary demo.

The Artisan Company is a New Zealand owned and based company focussed upon making and providing the highest quality decorative paint, tools and workshops for homes and all types of spaces. Born out of a rich heritage of bespoke furniture and interiors through the merging of Taylored Revival and Vintro Paint NZ. Unashamedly focussed upon luxury DIY products and in helping people achieve bespoke looks in their interiors. 


As the exclusive distributor for Vintro Luxury paints we have partnered and invested significantly to be able to produce and make these amazing paints in our NZ facility. In order to make these rich and multi pigmented paints we use advanced machinery with an exact accuracy measured within less than a ¼ of a ml and use a custom formulation database with over 375,000 possible formulations. This equipment and training allows us to manufacture locally in NZ ; Vintro Chalk Paint, “No Seal” Chalk Paint, Vintro Concrete Effect Paint and of course our Vintro Supreme Matt Emulsion for walls which all work in conjunction with our unique Vintro Waxes, Lacquers and Metallics. We are the only bespoke factory of our type in NZ as most products are either brought in finished from overseas our are relabelled locally mass produced products, it's this single tin bespoke manufacturing we enjoy and offer to our customers. 


To provide the best possible experience for our customers we have also curated artisanal tools including the world renowned Staalmeester brushes which work in perfect  unison with Vintros rich and creamy consistency. From the advanced bristle materials through to the  INOX steel ferrules it all really helps to achieve the best results, and yes brushes do make a big difference to your painting experience and finish.

Aside from our unique range of products, we are also proud of our decades worth of experience in the field of decorative painting and training. Having been recognised locally and overseas for these efforts has also led us to directly train over three thousand people and paint over two thousand bespoke furniture or interior pieces for clients.


All of these aspects have been brought together to create The Artisan Company; an online retailer and trainer, luxury paint and artisanal products maker and distributor. With the recent merging of Taylored Revival and Vintro Paint NZ to form The Artisan Company we now enjoy a quickly growing network of retailers who provide our products locally with knowledge and passion for all type painters and home decorators.
