Paint and Decorative finishes Paper Hanging:
All types of paper hanging and borders Tony Vines and Company have a huge selection of samples available. Colour washing:
This is most suitable for large surfaces such as walls and ceilings and is achieved by painting a diluted emulsion or tinted glaze over a base colour and then partially removing it. Colour washing is an extremely popular effect and is relatively inexpensive to achieve. There are many types of colour washing, for more information and samples please email us at Dragging:
This is an unusual and creative finish especially suitable for kitchens and woodwork. It gives the appearance of lines dragged through the surface colour so the colour underneath shows. For more information and samples email us at
This technique involves combing patterns into wet paint allowing base coat to show through. The size and scale of the pattern depends on the size of the comb used.Ragging and Rag Rolling:
Creates subtle patterns and adds warmth and texture. Looks far more interesting than plain walls without imposing on the décor of a room as wallpapers often can. Both techniques are great for hiding "bad" or blemished walls.Distressing:
Distressing has been a very popular paint finish in recent years. It gives furniture, especially kitchens the "lived with" look and adds charm and character to MDF or Whitewood.Crackle Glaze:
The Varnish on old painted surfaces owes its mellowness not only to the warm depth of colour varnish , but also to the fine network of crazing that develops as it ages. This will add great charm and character to doors and panels it will also accentuate stencilling.Marbling:
This is used generally where it may not be plausible or cost effective to use real marble. Marbling gives rich contrasting colour and is ideal for use on dull timber such as plywood or blockboard. It is also a cost effective way to disguise ugly pillars and give walls and furniture great character and charm.Spattering:
Basically showering a surface with flecks of coloured paint. It is a simple way to distress and add character to a dull surface. Graphiting:
Giving walls woodwork and furniture that metallic lustre (graphite does not contain lead)Malachite:
This bold finish gives an impressive look to walls and woodwork. It involves decisive interlocking curves giving the 'fan effect'.
Tortoise shelling: This is a strong effect for larger surfaces it gives directional flow and slightly staggered markings.Glazing:
