A Gentle Illuminating Finish

/ Interior wall coating with an illuminating sheen finish.

/ The subtle illuminating finish of Curator Subtle Sheen will bounce light around a space, making it a popular finish for poorly lit spaces.

/ Subtle Sheen is a waterbased, low VOC, low odour paint that is 100% acrylic technology based.

/ Subtle Sheen is most often used in high traffic areas such as hallways, bathrooms and commercial spaces. 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.

/ Subtle Sheen 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.
