The painted wall and color sample are exactly the same shade
Viena discovered the greenish shade N494 Nephrite on Tikkurila Feel the Color colour cardand in the Color Now 2017 color collection. Full-matt Harmony interior paint was chosen for the walls because the paint creates a sophisticated, velvety matt surface and smooths away any minor roughness on the surface.
When you choose a Tikkurila interior paint and tint it with a shade from the Feel the Color card, you can be sure that the color you choose will look exactly the same in your home as it does on the color chip - in all lighting conditions.
Add a metallic sheen to the living room
Viena added the finishing touches to the result by painting a few pots and lampstands with Taika Helmiäismaali pearlescent paint in shades Copper and Gold. Tikkurila’s updated Taika colour card contains silver-based, light pearlescent shades and warm shades with a gold luster.
Painting the wall
Wipe the surface of the wall clean. If the surface is clearly dirty, clean it using Tikkurila’s Maalipesu cleaning agent following the instructions on the label. Leave to dry.
Protect the floor with suitable paper before painting. Cover moldings and sockets with masking tape. If you had to level the wall surface or if the previous paint surface is dark in color, first apply a coat of Varma primer. Choose a shade of Varma primer that is close to the shade of the new topcoat.
Stir the Harmony interior paint and apply 2 coats using a roller. An extension pole will make it easier to paint. Harmony is recoatable within 1-2 hours of painting, so you can finish the wall in just a few hours.
Painting the objects with Taika paint
1. Clean the surface of the objects you intend to paint.
2. Apply 1-2 coats of Taika Helmiäismaali pearlescent paint using an S1 brush.
