TEXTURES

Golden Paintworks® produces an intriguing, eclectic series of architectural Textures. As a group they are all water based, tintable, acrylic coatings but each one has its own personality and unique decorative qualities.

Metallic Texture Tintable Bases

Golden Paintworks’ two Metallic Texture Tint Bases are the foundation for creating our Pre-Tinted Metallic Texture colors, as well as custom tinting in the studio or jobsite. We recommend using small amounts of colorant, Slow Dry Fluid Acrylic colors or mixing in Metallic Paint colors to create your own palette. Both the Pearl Tint Base and the Gold Tint Base can be used on their own as a bright and lively pearl or a brilliant gold. Each color will produce a soft, metallic sparkle with varied sheens and movement across the finish. Traditionally applied by trowel, the final finish requires no burnishing or top coating, which adds to its popularity. Available in Quart & Gallon sizes.

Venetian Plaster

Venetian Plaster Tint Base

Golden Paintworks® Venetian Plaster Tintable Base is the foundation for creating our Pre-Tinted Venetian Plaster colors as well as custom tinting in the studio or jobsite. It contains enough Titanium Dioxide that it can be used as a “White” or creating very light tints. However, it can easily be tinted to mid-tone colors. We recommend using controlled colorants or dispersed pigments to tint the product. Applied by trowel in thin layers, then burnished by applying pressure to the trowel’s edge while drying will produce a highly polished, marble-like finish. Available in Quart & Gallon sizes.

Soapstone

Soapstone Tint Base

Golden Paintworks® Soapstone Tint Base is the foundation for creating our Soapstone Pre-Tinted colors, as well as custom tinting in the studio or jobsite. Its versatile nature allows it to be intermixed with other decorative products for creating a truly unique finish. Soapstone can be mixed with pre-tinted flat architectural paint to create a color, or use controlled colorants or pigment dispersions. When trowel applied, it exhibits a subtle movement of color across the surface with little to no sheen. It contains no Titanium Dioxide so colors are rich and vibrant. A great product for producing dimensional ornament without cracking. When dry, it has ample holdout for over-glazing, painting or additional layers of Texture.  Available in Quart & Gallon sizes.

Application Tools

Application Tools

At Golden Paintworks, we believe the best decorative finishes start with the best products, applied with the best tools available. That’s why we offer PAVAN trowels from Italy.

  • PAVAN Trapezoid Stainless Steel Trowels contain a special stainless alloy that minimizes metal abrasion. The Inox Blade has rounded corners and tapered edges with a welded, hand-friendly synthetic grip.
  • Our PAVAN Specialty Trapezoid Plastic Trowel is made from plastic-welded and reinforced, white, Sicodur Plastic. It has straight edges, rounded corners, and the same hand-friendly synthetic grip as the Steel Trowels. Perfect for final coats that have a tendency to metal-mark.
  • For small, tight working areas, we offer Blue Blade Spatulas, which are great for applying Venetian Plasters, especially around door jams and windows. Blued Steel prevents rusting of the blade.
