Etnika is a decorative paint from the Antiche Terre Fiorentine line that delicately refracts light to produce intriguing chiaroscuro effects and a rich depth of colour. This is possible thanks to its special water-based resins and natural raw materials.
Etnika is both ecological and washable, and it is also available in seven different base colours: Ethnic Bronze, Flamingo Copper, Antique Gold, Renaissance Gold, Pure Red, Antique Silver and Light Silver.
It only takes one brush coat to obtain an attractive decorative effect. However, if you want to push it to its full aesthetic potential, as soon as the paint starts to dry you need to rub it with a special plastic Candis trowel. The effect is magical and will give the walls of your house a silky look that actually feels like velvet!

Antique gold and antique silver
1 nr. 36 toner per tin of white base;

Two coats are advisable, the first by diluting with 20-25% water, and the second with 15-20%.
