over 2,000 shades from the Tikkurila range, or colour match to your favourites.
Struggling to device on a colour for your fence or shed? Shades on a digital screen almost never look the same in your garden.
Why? The saturation of colour into wood can affected by many factors, including the condition of the surface, if it’s been previously painted, and whether you are using a stain or an opaque finish.
That’s why we recommend you test your favourite colours before committing. Our new exterior wood paint sample pots offer an easy solution!
The “Colour It” exterior sample pot contains 180ml of Tikkurila exterior paint in our best-selling, semi-matt, satin opaque finish. A water-based, low VOC solution that offers easy application and high opacity coverage in a smooth finish (similar to our Ultra Classic or Valtti Opaque exterior paints).
This can be applied to new and previously painted or stained surfaces and is ideal for use where a complete change of colour is required or where the existing surface has become weathered and uneven in appearance.
Our top tips:
- Stir (or shake!) your tin before application.
- Test in more than one location, applying two coats and over as large an area as you can.
- Once dry, study the colour(s) in different lighting conditions (day and night).
- Don’t line up your sample swatches right next to
each other (this will affect the way each reads).
