Dead Flat is a traditional, very flat matt finish, suited best to interior wood, plaster and metal surfaces, and comes in all 132 of our colours. This finish is the modern answer to ‘flatted lead’ used in the second quarter of the 18th century and is chosen today to either make a design statement, or when attempting to authentically replicate the traditional look of a period property.
Casein Distemper is a very flat matt finish best suited to traditional and historical properties. In 131 of our colours, it offers a sympathetic finish, creates an authentic look and allows interior plaster walls and ceilings to ‘breathe’.
Soft Distemper is our simple, traditional distemper that uses natural resins to create a very flat and exquisitely powdery finish. Available in 63 of our colours, this specialist finish perfectly suits fine plasterwork and delicate surfaces, as it can be easily removed to maintain more intricate details.
Limewash is our highly breathable specialist finish suited to the interior or exterior walls and ceilings of traditional and historic buildings, available in 77 of our colours. This paint bonds itself to the underlying layer and becomes part of the building itself. Limewash is a sympathetic finish that allows traditional walls and ceilings to ‘breathe’. When using this finish, we recommend that you speak to a painter or decorator as specialist knowledge is needed for the application.
