Wall paint technique Klondike from Valpaint
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,
