Gimcyn is a textured feature wall paint with pearls for indoors, that creates feature or accent walls with a soft, reflective iridescence. Gimcyn is easy to apply and can provide a variety of looks, based on the application tools and the technique of the person applying it.

It is a cost-effective and easy-to-apply alternative to wallpapers, is seamless and hard-wearing. It can not only be applied in a variety of ways but it is also extremely easy to repair!

Gimcyn is ideal for domestic or commercial projects that need that ‘high-end’ touch. If you’d like to add an extra touch of elegance, you can also try our Gimcyn Luxury!

Please remember that if you want to apply Gimcyn on a dusty, chalky or high porous area, you should use Atomo (To be applied before Gimcyn primer) This will help to consolidate the surface!

What is included?  

1 kg of Gimcyn paint

How to apply Gimcyn 

  1. Dilute the Gimcyn primer with 30% of water (0,5 l of primer with 150ml water or 1l of primer with 300mls water) and apply it with short pile or mohair roller.
  2. Wait a few hours (2 to 3) for the primer to get dry.
  3. Stir and apply a single coat of Gimcyn by brush, with a criss-cross technique.
  4. Leave as it is for a brushed effect or, after a few minutes of leaving the paint to dry, move the texture (grain) of the paint with a decor tobacco sponge to create a distressed look.
  5. Due to the drying time, create the effect in sections, roughly 0.25 sq meter (2-3 feet) at a time.
  6. The finish will be touch dry within 30 minutes and completely dry after 8 hours!
