How the colours may be applied to enliven the space

Lazure is a highly versatile painting system that enables colour to free itself from the solid, even appearance associated with normal paints. Instead Lazure seems to almost float across a wall and several shades of colour may appear on the same surface. Inwardly restful yet visually stimulating, Lazure is now being used in a whole range of building types to enliven the colour mood. We have been working with Lazure for twenty years and can advise on colour build-up, technique and materials. The four basic techniques are shown on the left hand side of the screen. (The word Lazure is derived from the German 'lasur' meaning glaze)

Application - Lazure involves the application of watercolour paints to a textured surface. A range of surfaces suitable for Lazure are shown on the right hand side of your screen. Lazure must be applied by a specialist

Durability - Experience has shown that Lazure is highly durable. One of our hotel clients was painting his bedrooms with emulsion every three years. When he switched to Lazure he did not paint them again for twelve years! This is just one of many similar experiences. (In normal conditions Lazure lasts at least 5-7 years)

Eco-friendly - Lazure can be applied using a variety of materials. The most commonly used materials are acrylics and the eco-friendly silicates and casein. We will advise on the suitability of materials according to the situation

Experience - We have been working with Lazure for twenty years and can advise on colour build-up, technique and materials. We will either carry out the work ourselves or advise on other suitable contractors. Our experience extends to most types of building and building surfaces

We also provide a range of transparent colour finishes suitable for smooth surfaces (plaster & wood). For information about these click Other
