  1. We bought paint at Builders Warehouse, Boksburg during July 2012. The name of the colour was Daphne’s Choice. It was written on the paint tin. Could you please assist with the colour code as the person at the store could not find the paint colour by name of Daphne’s Choice. Your assistance shall be highly appreciated.

    • Hi Coenie, thanks for getting in touch.

      We only seem to have a colour called “Daphne’s Dream” (Y1-E2-3) but no “Daphne’s Choice”.

      The Plascon Spaces Showroom will be able to help. They can be contacted on 0860 20 40 60

      Note that Builders Warehouse also has the Modo range manufactured by Plascon, which could include the colour you’re after. They also have their own range called Builders Pride. Did they perhaps mix the colour in store?

  2. Do you have a showroom in cape town or surrounding areas, where I can view samples of the “suede” paint range?


    • Hi Delize, thank you for your query.

      Unfortunately the Plascon Spaces Showroom is in Fourways, Johannesburg. You can however view what’s currently on stage via the Showroom website here. Otherwise one could visit any Builders Warehouse in Cape Town for samples.

  3. Hi Plascon, I like two colours from the MODO range of builders warehouse, are they able to tint these colours in the Plascon range? Colours: Battleship and Quick Silver. If not, what is the Plascon equivalent? I want to use Double Velvet.

  4. Hi Plascon, is the Modo chalk paint similar to the Annie Sloan paint? And if so, where am I able to get it? I am in the Midlands in KZN.

  5. Hi Plascon, I used your Swatch It app and found that the colour I need for painting my bedroom is SEA POINT Y3-C1-2… where in Cape Town can I find this?

    • Hi Tony, thanks for reaching out to us. Any Builders Warehouse, Builders Express, Mica Hardware, Midas & Shave stores will be able to tint the product for you in your preferred colour.
