Infinity

Infinity is an extravagantly soft, velvety paint of the highest quality.

This material is soft to the touch and really comes to life in areas where it can reflect light and show off the different shades it creates. Infinity is subtle, yet bold, it is a paint that can enhance a room and create a stunning feature without appearing out of place. Infinity is ideal for domestic or commercial projects that need that ‘high-end’ touch.

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

What is included?  

1 kg of Infinity paint

1/2 L of primer

 

How to apply Infinity

 

  1. Check the wall is free from dust, and dirt and is as smooth as possible before starting. Correct any imperfections.
  2. Make sure that Infinity primer has been applied beforehand and that it is dry. Mix paint well before applying as it might have settled during transport.
  3. Dilute the Infinity primer with 30% of water (0,5 l of primer with 150ml water or 1l of primer with 300mls water) and apply it with a short pile or mohair roller.
  4. Wait a few hours (2 to 3) for the primer to get dry.
  5. Apply the 1st coat of Infinity using the trowel. Avoid using linear movements, the idea is to create a random pattern using varied motions. Give this coat adequate time to dry.
  6. Begin with the 2nd coat using the trowel again, continuing to repeat the varied hand movements. At this stage, it is possible to be more deliberate with the pattern being created. The idea is to have random strokes that carry the purpose and show off different shades according to the light reflecting off the surface.

Infinity metallic textured paint sample pot 

The 50g metallic textured paint sample pot covers 0.25 msq (0.37 square feet) per Unit. This feature wall paint sample pot doesn’t come with the primer and is about 25 millilitres.
