Tri-coloured Earthcote Worn Leather wall

DIY: Creating a tri-coloured Earthcote Worn Leather wall

Guest post by Jenny Mason

Look what happens when you take a bagged wall and apply Earthcote Worn Leather in different colours. Truth be told, this room was not a pretty sight before. It’s a kid’s den in an outside room. And it’s now nicely transformed with paint, thank you very much.

The trick is to be sure that you ‘work’ the paint in vigorously while it’s still wet, at the intersections between the colours. Once dry, seal with a layer or two of Earthcote Worn Leather Wax – buffing it to a sheen. By hand, if it’s a small area and you’re up to it, or with an orbital buffer. The floor was painted in Midas Floor Paint.

This wall was produced by Jenny Mason using Earthcote Worn Leather. If you have any queries regarding this wall, please leave Jenny a comment on her blog Koekalooks and she’ll get back to you with answers.

Midas Earthcote Project: Greening the Park

21 May

MIDAS PROJECT: Greening Radisson Park Inn

The new Park Inn by Radisson on Cape Town’s Foreshore is conveniently located for delegates attending events at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). Given the location, guests can also walk to the V&A Waterfront and business travelers are in walking distance to a number of corporate headquarters. This contemporary hotel is as modern and luxurious as it is practical and convenient. It was important that the finishes be chosen to match the modern, innovation led approach. The project was a revamp of a period building and certain old walls needed careful finishing.

As with any leisure or hospitality project, constant occupancy and guest comfort is key. The hotel needed to be guest-friendly and habitable as soon as possible after painting, so fume-free paints and finishes were called for. Midas was responsible for supplying paint – environmentally friendly Midas Earthcote DTE Matt, a Zero VOC formulation. This is known to be better for people who suffer from chemical sensitivities, better for paint crews working on the project and better for the planet.

The architect responsible was Paul Luck of Lightspace Architects. “The Park Inn hotel brand is one which incorporates bold colours in much of its branding and general hotel operating equipment, such as their logo signage, uniforms, and décor accents”, said Paul Luck. “The brief was to incorporate bold flashes of colour to reflect the brand identity. We used Midas Earthcote colour in certain areas to offset from the general tones of whites and greys.”

From an aesthetic point of view, the architects wanted to avoid sheen finishes on walls, as they tend to highlight poor plasterwork and detract from the quality of the furnishings. “The reflections on the wall surface become the feature, and when this is not even or consistent, the effect looks disturbing. We chose Midas Earthcote’s DTE Matt to give a gentle, even backdrop for our features, whilst offering an easily maintainable surface,” said Paul.

The eco formulation was the clincher. “If we do not change our thinking, this earth will stand no chance. We endeavour to specify ‘sustainable’ products and construction techniques wherever possible, as part of our commitment to the planet.”

MIDAS EARTHCOTE DTE MATT: A Zero VOC water-based ultra matt formulation that minimizes light reflection on walls, whilst limiting environmental impact. Better for air quality, Midas Earthcote Zero VOC acrylic does not contain those raw materials in paint that are potentially harmful to human health. It is also free from Glycol, Formaldehyde and APEO.
