Eggshell paint is a durable satin finish for all interior walls, woodwork and metalwork (including radiators and pipes). Ideal for updating floors, stairs, skirting boards and kitchen units.
It is also the perfect alternative to the matt finish of Chalk Paint for painting furniture.
Like all of our paints, Eggshell is laden with pigment for depth of colour.
The soft sheen allows a degree of reflection from the surface and you will notice subtle changes in tones under different lighting conditions.
This paint is a technically advanced, water-based, eco-friendly product, which is easy to use whilst achieving a flawless finish. As a result, it will give unrivalled performance, exceptional coverage, and superior durability.
Vintro Eggshell is EN71-3 Certified – also known as ‘toy paint regulation safe’. This means it is completely safe for children’s rooms and furniture.
Vintro Eggshell Paint has stain and moisture resistant properties, and it can handle extreme condensation, so much so it is often used in commercial kitchen/bathroom environments.
Vintro Eggshell Paint is a highly durable product and is rated among the highest for “wet scrub resistance”, however due to the formulation, dirt and grime do not get through the finish, meaning a quick wipe is usually sufficient. The easy clean properties means that it is ideal for kitchens, bathrooms and high traffic areas, for example a hallway. Once the paint has cured, you will be able to clean the surface without affecting the appearance.
For the best finish using water-based paints, a high quality synthetic bristle brush is advised, and size is dependent on the surface you are painting.
Rollers for walls is down to two choices:
Short pile polyester or microfibre – Use if your wall is in great condition and flat, this will provide the best finish.
Medium pile polyester or microfibre – This is a good all-round choice if painting over either flat walls, or a slightly textured surface, such as pattern embossed wallpapers.
Rollers for woodwork or metalwork, should be short pile polyester.
Do not use foam rollers with water-based paints, as they do not apply enough paint and can cause air bubbles to appear on the painted surface.
Vintro Eggshell Paint gives a lovely, smooth finish with a slight sheen, which is very popular for customers who want a more modern look and finish.
Most surfaces will need a quick sanding to allow the paint to adhere, or a coat of primer can be used instead, but in either case make sure the surface is free of dust and grime and any loose paint has been removed.
2 coats of paint will often be sufficient, with adequate drying time in between coats, and, once cured, the paint will give a very durable finish which is easy to keep clean with a damp cloth.
Yes you can. Prepare the surface in the usual way and then apply a coat of primer, allowing a couple of hours for the primer to dry. 2 coats of paint will often be sufficient, with adequate drying time in between coats, and, once cured, the paint will give a very durable finish which is easy to keep clean with a damp cloth.
