Gimcyn Luxury is a new and improved textured feature wall paint with iridescent shimmer that can create stunning walls that you, your loved ones or your clients will fall in love with. Depending on the application Gimcyn Luxury can produce a variety of different looks, from a shimmer with almost no texture to a heavily ‘3D’ effect or from very light and colourful wall to dark wall.
This stunning paint is an easy-to-apply and cost-effective alternative to wallpapers, panels and cladding and creates a durable, repairable finish. We recommend Gimcyn Luxury to those who want the very best for their projects as it comes with a pre-coloured primer for maximum opacity.
Please remember that if you want to apply Gimcyn Luxury on a dusty, chalky or high porous area, you should use Atomo (To be applied before Gimcyn Luxury Primer) This will help to consolidate the surface!
Before placing an order it is strongly recommended to to order a sample pot or Gimcyn Luxury colour chart as colours, depending on the lighting and interiors, may significantly change.
Impera Italia’s Gimcyn Luxury paint comes as a bundle, with the right amount of Gimcyn primer to cover 5 square metres per unit.
What comes in the bundle?
1 kg of Gimcyn Luxury paint
1/2 L of pre-coloured primer
How to apply Gimcyn Luxury
Make sure to do test patch with less than 15 gramms to ensure you can achieve the right look before going ahead with the below.
- Make sure to dilute the Gimcyn Luxury primer with 0.3 litres (1/2 pint) of water and then apply it with mohair or short pile roller.
- Wait 2 to 4 hours, as long as the primer needs to get fully dry.
- Open and stir the paint, then apply one coat of Gimcyn Luxury by brush, with a criss-cross technique.
- If you prefer a brushed effect then leave it as it is or alternatively, after 5 to 10 minutes move the grain of the paint with a tobacco sponge to get rid of the brush marks.
- Make sure to respect the drying time. Create the effect in sections, about a quarter square metre (2-3 feet) at a time. Also, don’t create a sharp ‘edge’ when putting on the paint, spread it around the edges so you’ll be able to connect it.
- The final finish will be ready in about 30 minutes (touch dry) and it will completely dry after 8 hours
