DULUX Paints Unveils Venetian Silk Paint Line

As the trend of self-expression continues to grow in home decor, DULUX® Paints has found a way to help you unleash your creativity and transform walls into one-of-a-kind masterpieces in two easy steps.

Venetian Silk provides fluid elegance to any room.

The brand has announced the launch of Dulux VENETIAN SILK™ paint, an original paint product that delivers luxurious, elegant walls unique to each room.

Developed using innovative technology that enables users to infuse walls with visual depth and sophistication to match their personal taste, Dulux Venetian Silk paint is part of a new line called Dulux Effect Finishes. The line also includes Dulux LIQUID METAL™ paint, a unique product that adds fluid elegance to any room.

“You don’t need to be an artist to create a masterpiece with these products,” says Martin Tustin-Fuchs, Dulux Paints brand manager, explaining that the line is geared towards paint professionals, designers and do-it-yourselfers alike. “Our specially-selected palette of colors combined with a little imagination will deliver results so striking that, even if you don’t change anything else in the room, you will see a remarkable transformation in your decor.”

Dulux Venetian Silk paint produces the sensuous, silky, layered effect of Venetian plaster yet is easy to apply and smooth to the touch. Available in 40 striking, light-animating colors, it creates a distinctive multi-toned and luminous finish that adds unprecedented depth to walls. Applied in two steps, Dulux Venetian Silk products require a coat of specially-selected base color to be painted before two thin top coats of Dulux Venetian Silk paint are applied creatively, in different directions, using an applicator or plastic trowel.

Dulux Liquid Metal paint delivers sophisticated elegance to rooms by adding lustrous shimmer to walls, trim and furniture. Available in 32 light-reflecting colors infused with gold, silver, copper or bronze undertones, the finish takes on a smooth or mottled look depending on the application tool used.

As with the Dulux Venetian Silk line, Dulux Liquid Metal paint involves a two-step application process, requiring a coat of a specially-selected base color to be painted before two top coats of Dulux Liquid Metal paint are applied. “Reminiscent of a fluid, sparkling work of art, this illuminating, durable, color-rich texture delivers the ultimate finishing touch to any room,” Tustin-Fuchs says.
