Curator High Quality Premium European Paint Newsletter

A stunning mid-sheen finish

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

/ Curator Satin has a lower sheen than Curator Gloss but a higher sheen level than Curator Eggshell.

/ Satin is a waterbased, low VOC, low odour, alkyd paint.

/ Satin is most often used on doors, windows and shutters, kitchen cabinets, 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.

/ Satin 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.
