How to use Plascon Pearl and Metallic Paint

Plascon’s Designer Walls Ranges in Pearl and Metallic finishes add depth and dimension to walls. They are specifically aimed at the decorative artist dealing with both commercial and domestic interiors.

These products are not readily available in all retailers due to a lack of high-volume demand and lack of application knowledge. They come in 1 litre and 5 litre tins, which must be pre-ordered from your nearest Plascon retailer to ensure that stock is available.

The Pearl and Metallic paint colour ranges provide unique paint finishes, and make sophisticated paint effects easy to achieve for the non-specialist applicator. When you are equipped with knowledge of these products and the correct application process, you’ll find that the ranges are very user-friendly.

The Pearl and Metallic paint colour ranges are available to view in the Plascon Spaces Showroom in Design Quarter, Johannesburg. The showroom consultants will show off the range on brush-outs, and Plascon Spaces Showroom Ambassador, Claire Bond, is able to do a paint effects demonstration showing the endless possibilities of this range and how this product can enhance a lifeless interior by introducing light-reflective properties. Please make an appointment beforehand should you wish to visit the showroom.

The Pearl and Metallic paints can be applied over a colour of your choice. Plascon Double Velvet is an excellent base to use before applying your Pearl or Metallic paint as a topcoat. This product has a shimmer much like the look of oil glittering on water and is available in degraded mauve and floral colours to fit in with the glamorous return of 1920’s elegance. It is also available in Gold, Copper and Silver.

  1. I need some advice please. Our church has around 30 cane chairs which are very old. The original paint is peeling and chipping off. What is the best way to prepare and repaint them.

    • Our Gerard, we have consulted with Tech Services and they advise that you strip the entire previous coat back to the bare substrate.

      Give the cane a light sand and remove the dust. This is to create a key for adhesion for the topcoat to follow. Ensure the surface is clean, dry and sound.

      Apply 2 coats of Plascon Velvaglo with 16 hours drying time in between coats in a well ventilated area.

    • Hi Jillian, thank you for connecting with us. For any colour-related queries, please contact our Spaces Showroom on 011 467 8693/4 and speak to a colour consultant. They will be more than happy to advise you.
