A new Taika on paint…

Tikkurila Taika … the answer to the pearlescent paints you’ve always wanted!

As the solution to more interesting interiors, Tikkurilla have brought out five pearlescent products that bring colour and light together to form captivating, mystical combinations in which colour captivates light as a part of its essence.

Starting with the tintable Taika Pearl Paints, this product is a quick drying waterborne paint with a metallic sheen that will add some sparkle to your life. Suitable for both furniture and walls this pretty paint has the ability to turn a normal home to a work of art.

For a look with a touch more shimmer and shine than the standard pearl paints, Tikkurila have the tintable Taika Pearl Glazes. The semi-translucent glaze holds a glimmering misty light that changes depending on the angle you view them. These glazes will be affected by the undercoat colour so in order to attain the desired result, Tikkurila helpfully provide undercoat recommendations for all their glaze products.

Don’t worry though if you’re looking for something with less of an allover glimmer but still more glamorous than the common matt paint, Tikkurila have brought out Taika Stardust – a transparent effect glaze containing glittering gold or silver particles. The glaze won’t hide any underlying wall colour, simply add a subtle metallic sparkle.

Last, but certainly not the least, is Taika Glow… a special waterborne lacquer that glows in the dark! With a glowing effect for up to six hours, this unique product means interiors can be brought to life even after the lights turn off! This product is something the kids are sure to love.
