Tinted Taika Pearl Paints are opaque, full-bodied, pearlescent paints, which will make a work of art out of your home. A pearlescent paint, in all its colour variations, conjures up a hidden, more noble appearance even in the most ordinary of objects. Taika Pearl Paints are suitable both for furniture and wall surface treatment.

Tinted Taika Pearl Glazes
are semi-transparent, pearlescent glazes. In an instant, you can create for your home delicate wall surfaces and elegant details, which become alive when the light strikes them, or when you look at them from different directions. Because pearl glazes are semi-transparent, the colour of the primer always affects the final result. You will get the most even surface by choosing the colour of the primer as close as possible to the colour of the glaze.

Note! Instructions for using Taika Pearl Paint and Taika Pearl Glaze can be found from Taika Pattern and Colour Guide.
