Newly sprouted spring leaves, the vibrant colour of a ripe pear and the fresh hue of a young lime.

Pureco Silk Finish Paint is our easy-to-use, eco-friendly, water and acrylic based mineral paint. Made in Australia, it dries to a 100% washable, stain-resistant, satin sheen finish! 

We designed this paint to be ideal for all furniture artists, from beginner to experienced! It is the perfect choice for those who like to paint and go, more suited to smooth clean finishes like those seen in modern, coastal and Hamptons styles! (Don’t worry you can still shabby it up like you can the Chalk Finish!) 

Unlike most other mineral paints, when dry, Silk Finish has a beautiful (tough) eggshell shine to it, eliminating the need for additional topcoats. Our Sealers can still be applied for extra durability on high traffic surfaces if desired! 

Amazing self levelling properties so you can achieve the smoothest finish, every time! 


How to Use -

Always do a test patch to see if this product is right for your project.

Clean substrate well, sand any flaking paint off, lightly scuff sand shiny surfaces to promote adhesion.

Prime using Pureco Base & Blocker or any flat, matte, waterbased primer. 

Ensure you Silk Finish Paint is mixed thoroughly and paint away with a brush, spray or roller! 

 

For best results use a smooth synthetic brush in long even smooth strokes, avoid over working the paint. Apply two or more coats, allowing to dry in between. 
If spraying, Silk Finish can be watered down up to approx 15% without compromising the built in top coat. If diluting further, either for spraying or for a wash, an additional sealer will be required. 

In some cases, you may find some substrates may have tannin bleed-through.
Should this happen, use our Base & Blocker and leave overnight to prevent further staining.

Our waxes are not suitable to use with Silk Finish as they will tend just slide around and not absorb into the coating.

Easy clean up with water for brushes, rollers and spray equipment.

Drying Times Drying times will vary dependant on climate. Humidity will increase cure time.
Most products will be fully cured between 7-21 days.
Cured is when every drop of liquid is thoroughly evaporated and only the coating is left.
Coverage 200ml will cover approx 2-3 square metres and 600ml will cover approx 7-8 square metres in normal conditions. This will definately depend on the colour choice, whites will require more coats hence cover less square metres.
