Sioloc is an iridescent metallic feature wall paint with pearls for indoors, that creates an amazing smooth wall finish with a velvety sheen that you will fall in love with!
Sioloc can be applied using different techniques and tools that will produce a variety of stunning finishes. For an extra touch of class, the trowel application will create an amazing array of different shades of the same colour which really enhance and bring a level of vibrancy to the final look.
If you are planning to apply Sioloc on a dusty, chalky or high porous area, you should use Atomo (To be applied before Sioloc primer) This will help to consolidate the surface!
Before placing an order we recommend ordering a sample pot or Sioloc colour chart as only live, hand-applied colours can provide true colour accuracy and show you how fantastic this paint is!

What comes in the Sioloc bundle?

How to apply Sioloc?
Please test the product and apply a patch with less than 15 grammes before starting to apply it on the wall. This ensures that you can achieve the right look before painting the whole wall! Once you’re happy with the look, follow these steps:
- Dilute the Sioloc primer with 0.3 litres (cca 1/2 pint) of water. Apply it on the surface with a mohair or short pile roller. Once you covered the required area, let it dry for 4-6 hours. You need to make sure the primer is fully dry before starting to apply the paint.
- Open and stir the paint, then apply the 1st coat of Sioloc using a flexible plastic trowel. Cover about 1-2 square metres (11 to 22 square feet) at a time and then flatten the area by spatula for the best look! Alternatively, you can leave it as it is. Make sure to leave the first coat to dry for 4-6 hours before you put on the second one!
- Apply the 2nd coat the same way as the previous coat.
How much does the sample pot cover?
Every 50g of these sample pots cover about 0.025 msq (0.37 square feet). You do not need the primer as if you apply it on a white surface, the right opacity and shade will show unless you spread it too wide! Make sure to use a surface that is not too absorbent like a painted or mist coated MDF or wooden board instead of paper.
Impera Italia’s Advice™
Make sure to test how to spread the paint and always use the correct tool, the flexible plastic trowel.
Gems can be organic, like pearls or inorganic, like opal.
A: This finish should not get in contact with water, use it as a feature and not a waterproof coating! As long as it doesn’t get in contact with water you should be fine and can apply it in bathrooms.
Q: Can I apply Sioloc on a tile?
A: Although technically (after priming the surface with a special primer for non-absorbtive surfaces) it can be applied, we don’t recommend it you will see the tile’s texture and the grout!
Q: Can I use Sioloc on floors?
A: No, please don’t apply it as a flooring product, it’s not suitable for that purpose. If you’re looking for a flooring product, try our micro cement finishes!
Q: How durable is it? Is it scratch proof and washable?
A: Please wipe it only and do not wash it. It is not scratch proof as it’s a feature wall finish; you can repair it easily with a small amount of material applied over the damage!
Q: How accurate are your colours shown online?
A: As the paint is iridescent we are not able to take 100% accurate pictures or show you the look in its full glory. Please order a colour chart or a sample pot to a single unit before placing a larger order. We recommend ordering a full unit if you’d like to decorate a large area!
Q: How resistant are the colours of this paint?
A: We made sure that Sioloc has excellent colour resistance!
Q: Do I really need a primer?
A: Yes, you do! Don’t worry, the correct amount of primer is included with every kg of paint, it comes as a bundle!
Q: What do I need to do if I’d like to get the wall re-done?
A: Sand and then prime the surface and it is ready for another coat of plaster or paint!
Q: Do I need to contract a specialist to apply your paint?
A: This product is suitable for any DIY! On the other hand, if you’d like to achieve the best possible look we recommend using a professional decorator (or even a brand ambassador).
Q: How long does this paint remain usable once I open it?
A: When stored under the right circumstances, between 5 and 35 degrees, in the shade, it will remain usable for at least a year!
