Curator High Quality Premium European Paint Newsletter

A luxurious flat finish

/ Interior and exterior wood and metal coating with a low-sheen finish.

/ Curator Eggshell is the lowest sheen level in the Curator range suitable for wood and metal, for interior and exterior use.

/ Eggshell is a waterbased, low VOC, low odour, alkyd paint with excellent colour retention.

/ Eggshell is most often used on furniture, doors and fences. However, due to its extremely durable finish you are not limited to using it in these places alone. Please contact us to determine the most appropriate finish for your project.

/ Eggshell is a stain resistant, washable finish. We recommend washing stains as soon as possible with a clean, lint free cloth and clean, warm, soapy water. Do not apply too much pressure as excessive scrubbing may damage the paint finish. Oil based stains may not be completely removed, marks from permanent markers will not be removed.
