Stencilling

If there’s a particular pattern or logo that you really enjoy chances are we can create it within a finishing style of your choice.

This applies to company logos, icons, initials and much more. All we need are the design files to get a stencil made up, alternatively there are many stylish ‘off the shelf’ ones we can incorporate into your design for you.

Metallics

Shimmer and shine can bring about some lovely light refractions, making your project pop in ways nothing else can.

These can come in a variety of application methods added to other finishes & product ranges or be standalone products of their own accord.

Smooth or textured are both options.

Patina and Rust effects

Typically these would be delivered in a matt finish due to the processes that take place, however we can apply sealers over the top which can smooth out and add shine.

Levels of ‘ageing’ / oxidisation can be selected & applied over the top of some, but not all of the products we use.

Nice if you’re particularly fond of the weathered or distressed looks.

Patterned finishes

Animal print textures such as crocodile or snake skin finishes can be added into design top coats, providing a repeatable pattern that remains once finished.

However, they are not just limited to these effects we can also supply rippled patterns, dragged effect, bamboo texture, sponged and many more to suit your needs.

Decorative Paint Effects

These finishes whilst visually impressive tend not to have the texture or depth of other materials nor the durability or versatility.

Sealers and lacquers can still be applied to vary the sheen levels and add some surface toughness though.

Great as an additional to add some spice to topcoats or on surfaces where other finishes may not be an option.

One Offs

The ultimate level of bespoke finish is to have something specifically designed just for you.

Take the box where your creativity usually lives and kick it to the curb as we venture into realms often unknown, untested & never seen before!

Mix products together that wouldn’t typically be, an option for the braver of you out there.
