  1. We have a huge dining / lounge / living area with big windows and beautiful light wood floors. The colour on the walls are white!!! We have very high ceilings, and the colour scheme is brown / beige and blues. I want to paint one wall in the dining area Plascon Dreamcather B4-B2-2, and would like advice on colour to use for the walls and ceiling.

  2. Painted outside walls With Micatex (Julia Y3-A2-2) on white primer base. Color looks as if it has a greenish tone. Do you think it might be best to change the final coat to Calico EPL437? Would like a nice friendly yellowish color & the place where I stay only allows me to use one of these 2 colors.

  3. I am very interested in the stone colour range that was showed on Tuine en tossels that aired 19/06/2013 the lady said she painted all her walls with Plascon ? Stone. For the life of me I can’t remember the colour name and would appreciate it so much if you can email me with the information I require.

    I fell in love with the colour and want to paint my walls immediately so please please please I am anxiously awaiting your response.

  6. I would like to paint my house to give it a new outstanding look. I like bright colours for finishing such as red, dark pink or yellow for trims. I don’t know which lovely dark colour to complement those, from grey to khaki. Any help?

    • Hi Selina, thanks for getting in touch.

      Cashmere is a water-based product, with a matt finish. If painting over a water-based paint you just need ensure the surface is clean, sound and dry before over coating with Cashmere, however, if existing paint is an oil-based paint you will also need to ensure that the surface is clean, sound and dry then sand lightly and dust off. Apply one coat of Plascon Universal Undercoat allowing 16 hours drying time and finish with two coats of Cashmere allowing 2 hours drying time between coats.

  7. How do I find the closest paint colour to an RGB or CMYK formula that I’ve got?

    I’m looking for a paint that’s close to R 165 G 143 B 140 or #a58f8c or C 36 M 41 Y 39 K 2.

    Any suggestions?

  8. Hi…I have oak flooring and alpine white cupboards. And also a white blind with a wood grain look. I have been struggling to find a colour to paint the walls. I’m also looking to have a feature wall behind the bed. My bed colour is Chocolate Brown Leather. I have tried Fynbos Leaf and the colour reflects off the cupboards. Any advice will be appreciated

  9. Need to paint the house exterior urgently. I chose Micatex shade called Clifton. What would be a good contrasting colour for the trimmings (faschia boards, Gutter pipes, etc)? Also should it be Wall & All or Enamel?

    • Hi Harshila, thanks for getting in touch with us.

      Please kindly contact the Plascon Spaces Showroom for all colour advice. Alternatively you could try the Plascon Inspired Colour System to find a good contrasting / adjacent colour.

  10. I painted my walls a cigar smoke colour but now I want to paint my cupboards in the kitchen in a gray shade. What grey colour will give a french look in my kitchen?

    • Hi Chris, I forwarded your colour query to our colour expert, who replied with the following:

      “If the space is a very light, open plan and more French with a contemporary slant, they could use Paris Paving EC 53, which has a big contrast when placed against Cigar. If they want a more subtle classic effect (like your French Provence feel) I suggest Crete Shore EC 52.

      Please see the colour stripe cards attached in the links provided. The customer must purchase the colour in a small amount to test using two coats of paint before buying a large quantity of the colour they prefer.”
