Sioloc Suede is a semi-matt silky wall paint that can be used for any indoor project. Once you apply it can create a soft, suede-like look with overlapping layers.
Depending on the tools and technique used, Sioloc Suede can create a wide variety of finishes and designs; we recommend applying it by trowel for a vibrant, luxurious and layered look but it can also be applied by brush.
Not only is Sioloc Suede easy to apply but it is also very cost-effective. The look, cost and application make it a fantastic alternative to wallpapers, and it is even easy to repair!
If you are planning to apply Sioloc Suede on a dusty, chalky or high porous area, you should use Atomo (To be applied beforeSioloc Suede Primer) This will help to consolidate the surface!
Before you place an order please make sure to either order a Sioloc Suede colour chart or a sample pot. If you do this, you will be able to check the quality, the application and also can approve the colour right where it will be applied!
This paint is offered as a bundle and the paint will come with a pre-coloured primer, enough to cover 5 square metres (or about 54 square feet) per unit.
What is included in the bundle?
1 kg of Sioloc Suede paint
1/2 L of pre-coloured primer
How do I apply Sioloc Suede?
Please use a bit of paint, not more than 15 grammes to create a test patch. This will ensure that you can apply the right amount in the right way and that you’ll get the right look!
Please follow the following steps when you apply a full unit:
- Dilute the primer with 0.3 litres (1/2 pint) of water. Apply it with a mohair or short pile roller, but try not to leave any long, straight lines. Leave it to dry till it’s fully dry, between 4-6 hours.
- Once the primer is dry, open and stir the paint. Apply the 1st coat of Sioloc Suede using a flexible plastic trowel, from different angles. Once you’ve applied between 1 and 2 square metres flatten it by spatula or a plastic trowel for the best look, or just leave it as it is. Leave it to dry for 4-6 hours.
- Apply the 2nd coat the same way as the previous coat.
How large are the sample pots?
Every sample pot is about 50g and covers about 0.025 msq (0.37 square feet). Samples pots don’t come with the primer as you will be able to apply a small patch on more than 2 coats to see the right opacity. Just apply it on a white surface, preferably a painted wall or MDF and not on paper, carton or another very absorbent material.
