26.08.2009 09:44

Do you want a surface that glows? Tikkurila Pearl glazes and paints give you fantastic effects on both wood and metal surfaces.

Different finishes can be created by varying the shade of primer paint or stain, the glossiness of the lacquer used and the base material or application method, for example. The glossier the lacquer used, the more the surface will glow. Reflecting light creates an incredibly beautiful effect, bringing added value to a piece of furniture or an entire building.
