This week we are sharing, a beautiful rich bold paint recipe, a great combination  for a striking feature piece, perfect for those stand alone pieces or for a piece against a wall where you want the eye to travel to and focus on. Finish it off with a luxe gold, or with silver.  Dress and pair it with luscious greenery, golds & earthy wood tones for an exotic interior story. Or pair it with black and chic decor or a large print hanging above for a more modern setting.  

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.

As NZ's only bespoke paint manufacturer making our own exclusive formulations including our flagship Premium Chalk Paint we combine technology with our fine tuned natural skills. We use advanced machinery with an exact accuracy measured within less than a ¼ of a ml and use a custom formulation database with complex colours formulated by hand; most of which can't be replicated by machines. Our trademarked FLOWplus® technology further differentiates our range being built in from the ground up and allowing our thick full bodied and highly pigmented paints to mould and flow effortlessly. We are a proud NZ company who promotes and uses local suppliers and products wherever possible. We also aim to have a positive impact on environment through low VOC paints, minimised wastage and smart use of materials.

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 our Premium Chalk Paint and otehr ranges with there 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.
