Touch reveals the form of a surface

Structural variation and contrast can work wonders on a wall. Not only a glossy-matt contrast, but also a rough-smooth contrast can bring a room to life in new ways. Whether the surface is rough, grooved or smooth, you can feel the difference.

A Tunto Fine Textured Finish was used for the lower part and the bedroom wall border motif. Stencilled patterns painted with this coating produce a subtle texture.

Many will surely recall the white dash-bond coated wall surfaces and vaulted arches typical of the 1970s and 80s. Inspired by trips to the Mediterranean, they were used for walls and arches in restaurants and private homes.

Fashions change, and so do wall finishes. Today, wall surfaces do not need to be rough or thick - even gentle brushing in a criss-cross pattern will lend a soft texture to walls that is inviting to touch.

Walls finished with Tunto Fine can be transparently coloured with Feelings Effect Paint, for example. The finish is porous and absorbs colour, leaving a soft finish reminiscent of watercolours. Any Tikkurila interior paint can be used to paint over decorative paint finish, and Taika Pearl Glaze range can lend a fascinating sheen to it.

A light-coloured wall painted with Feelings interior paint was decorated with large flowers using a Tunto Fine Textured Finish. An elegant solution for an elegant and vivacious interior designer.

Tunto Fine Textured Finish lends itself to any number of patterns on smooth, painted walls. Wallpaper brushes, paintbrushes, brooms or even dishwashing brushes are all suitable for texturing a decorative finish. A rubber spatula can also produce wonderful stucco effects.
