PLASCON TESTER POTS: DOUBLE VELVET & CASHMERE

Painting is seen as an expensive task and one of the challenges that consumers are faced with is choosing the right colour for their walls. Consumers have realised that what may look right on a small colour chip may look different when splashed across the expanse of a living room wall.

Plascon tester pots allow consumers to:

  • Select and tint more than 1000 colours from the fan-deck
  • Think about the mood they want to create for a particular room
  • Determine the preferred sheen level for the particular room (Matt or Sheen)
  • Cover a small portion of the wall intended to be painted and live with it for a number of days before making a final decision
  • The 250ml Plascon tester pots can cover approximately 1.5 m² and are close matches to the actual tinted products.

Plascon tester pots are available in two sheen level variants:

  • Double Velvet (Velvet Sheen) and Cashmere (Plush Matt)
  • 250ml tintable packs of Pastel, Deep and Transparent bases
  • 100% of Plascon Inspired Colours can be tinted on the Automatic Tinting Machines in-store.

Below is a list of retailers (organised by region) that stock Plascon tester pots.

  1. I have been to Builders Warehouse in Boksburg. I was told they no longer do tester pots, you have to buy at least 1 liter of paint in order to test.

    • Hi Wouter, thanks for getting in touch and for bringing that to our attention. We will need to get in touch with all our retailers to see which ones are still stocking our tester pots and update our listing as soon as possible!

    • Hi Hening, please understand that if the tester pots were free of charge then people would abuse the system by simply stocking up on free samples and possibly selling them…

  2. Hi guys. Where can I get your tester pots in Durban? Builders in Umhlanga advised I have to buy 1 liter of paint to use as a tester.

    • Hi Neil, it’s unusual for Builder’s Warehouse not to stock our tester pots. Have you tried any of the other stores? Unfortunately we don’t have much control over what products outlets decide to stock
