This is a typically modern and elegant water-based paint for indoor and outdoor use. KLONDIKE can be applied to a wide range of surfaces; thanks to its unique colours and shades, it may be used to create extremely on-trend living environments. The decorated surfaces capture the precious forged metal fragments incorporated in the paint, enhancing its gold, silver and oxidised effects. This achieves the perfect result: rooms are framed by metallic walls and become truly contemporary spaces. KLONDIKE is a high-quality product as it is breathable, washable and may also be painted over with any other water-based paint.

APPLICATION: The procedure used to achieve the Spatula-stroke effect and the Brushstroke effect using KLONDIKE is described below. 1) Classic effect (using a Spatula): apply KLONDIKE with the  Stainless Steel Trowel, using uneven strokes between 15 – 30 cm long in all directions, leaving a light and uneven coating of product on the surface. After 5 – 6 hours at 20°C, apply the second coat of KLONDIKE using the same method as for the first coat (described previously). Wait for approximately 1 hour at 20°C and go over the part which has already been treated, using the same Stainless Steel Trowel but with no product, making criss-cross strokes approximately 15 – 20 cm long in all directions and exerting pressure so that the colour particles are crushed and made smaller, thus forming light and shade effects. 2) Classic effect (Brush + Spatula): the Classic effect can also be achieved using the following application cycle. Dip the  brush into the product, making sure it is well loaded, and apply KLONDIKE using small brushstrokes 8 – 15 cm long in all directions, moving from right to left and vice-versa, and from bottom to top and vice-versa, leaving a light layer of product which is more or less uneven. After approximately 20 minutes at 20°C, use the  Stainless Steel Trowel (without any product) to smooth the decorated surface, working in all directions. Next, after approximately 5 – 6 hours at 20°C, apply the second coat of KLONDIKE, still working with the Brush and using the same technique as for the first coat. Wait for approximately 1 hour at 20°C and go over the part which has already been treated, using the  Stainless Steel Trowel (without any product) to make criss-cross strokes 15 – 20 cm long in all directions and exerting pressure so that the colour particles are crushed and made smaller, thus forming light and shade effects.3) Brushstroke effect: dip the  brush into the product, making sure it is well loaded, and apply KLONDIKE using small brushstrokes 8 – 15 cm long in all directions, moving from right to left and vice-versa, and from bottom to top and vice-versa, leaving a light layer of product which is more or less uneven. After approximately 5 – 6 hours at 20°C, apply the second coat of KLONDIKE, using the same technique as for the first coat. Wait for approximately 1 hour at 20°C and go over the part already treated with the  Brush but without any product, using criss-cross strokes in all directions and exerting pressure on the surface. N.B: The end Brushstroke effect may appear very different in relation to the colour samples provided in the Catalogue, which were applied using the Classic effect method. The end result varies in particular when KLONDIKE + GOLD ADDITIVE G 100 or SILVER ADDITIVE G 200 is applied. It is therefore a good idea to test the product on a small surface first in order to ensure it is a success, after which the rest of the decoration procedure may be continued.
