SKU:
VPT011-gp
Maroc is a very rich, earthy chalk paint and the perfect base colour in two-colour ageing projects. Made with natural earth pigments, this deep shade of green would look perfect as a contrasting colour against a lighter shade such as Linen, painted in an alcove to create a sense of depth in your chosen room. With deep brown undertones, Maroc is an intense, traditional colour which will fill a room with a sense of warmth when painted onto the walls. Adorn your chosen space with bright soft furnishings to bring out the greeny tones this quick drying paint has to offer. 

What is chalk paint?

Emulating the Butttermilk Paints of the 18th Century and perhaps now more commonly known as a chalk paint, it is packed with natural earth pigments. This eco-friendly VOC free (Volatile Organic Compounds) water-based product has over 46% chalk, one of the highest percentages in the industry. The true chalky, matt, breathable finish is just perfect for ageing and distressing furniture and can also be used on walls and floors.

How to use chalky paint

Apart from on walls, our Vintage Paint should be finished off with either our matt, flat Simply Varnish or our traditional Simply Wax. With excellent adhesion qualities, the paint can be applied directly to a previously painted or varnished surface, without the need for a primer, just give the piece a light sanding. If painting onto a waxed surface, do remove the wax first with Methylated Spirits or Sugar Soap or, if painting new pine, we suggest you stain it first with our Simply Stain. In both these cases, you need to seal with Simply Shellac to prevent knots or stains appearing at a later stage.
