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.

If you don't live close to a retailer we would be happy to talk you through it or you can book in for an online demonstration:

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.
