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.

Midas Earthcote Roof & Floor Paint

Midas Earthcote Floor Paint

THE most essential step involved when applying floor paint is correct preparation. It is important that all floor surfaces be prepared in the recommended manner. This usually involves ensuring that floors are oil and grease free before applying floor paint.

Midas Earthcote Floor Paint is a tough water-based polyurethane floor paint that dries to a satin finish. It can be used for both exterior and interior surfaces and can be applied to new or previously painted floors where medium wear and tear resistance is required.

Application: Thoroughly stir and apply a minimum of two coats of Midas Earthcote Floor Paint to prepared surfaces using a brush, roller or spray at the stipulated spread rates. Allow to dry before over-coating.

Midas Earthcote also offers a unique floor paint called Stoep Paint. This is a tough, roll-on floor paint that dries to a gloss finish. It can be used for both exterior and interior surfaces.

Application: Prepare surfaces thoroughly, removing all oils and grease etc. with Granoprep; apply two finishing coats of Stoep Paint. Strictly follow all the manufacturer’s instructions and allow the correct drying times between coats.

Midas Earthcote Roof Paint

When it come to roof paint, most would turn to a product that is both waterproof and fade-resistant. Midas Earthcote offers three varieties of roof paint – one of which is even acid rain-resistant.

Midas Earthcote Acrylic Roof Paint is a medium strength, acrylic-based roof paint that is fade-resistant and dries to a matt finish. Midaroof is a premium quality, pure acrylic roof paint that is fade-resistant and acid rain-resistant.

Bituminous Aluminium, on the other hand, is our solvent-based, bituminous solution pigmented with aluminium paste for protection of bitumen waterproofing systems.

Roof Paint Application:

All roof paint is for exterior use only and application is the same across all products. An important part of the preparation process is to degrease galvanized metal surfaces with Galvanised Iron Pre-cleaner. Thereafter one coat of the recommended primer should be applied followed by two finishing coats of your chosen roof paint. As always, one should strictly follow all the manufacturer’s instructions and allow the correct drying times between coats.
