Decorator's Varnish

A highly durable finish that protects a wide range of surfaces against finger marks, stains, scuffing and colour fading.

A unique, clear acrylic varnish that uses nano-technology to protect a wide range of decorative surfaces - paintwork, wallpaper, fabric, wood and plaster work. Available finishes; satin for depth and a soft sheen, dead flat for a completely shine free surface.

Heavy Duty Wood Varnish

An ultra hard, high quality varnish with a satin or dead flat finish that dries to a crystal clear film for interior surfaces requiring a high level of protection such as working surfaces and areas of high wear.

Floor Varnish

This is the hardest of all 'one pack' varnishes. An ultra hard, high quality coating with a satin or dead flat finish that dries to a crystal clear film with extremely good sanding properties allowing a very high quality of finish to be obtained. Formulatated for floors and areas of high wear.
When using dead flat finish, if a very high level of durability and stain resistance is required, apply one or two coats of Floor Varnish Satin Finish followed by one or two coats of Floor Varnish Dead Flat Finish.

Metallic Paint

Produces a completely realistic metal finish for interior and exterior use that does not tarnish or fade. Simply brushes on easily giving a rich deep colour, creating a subtle metallic sheen. The unusual mica pigment dries to a genuine metallic sheen. It has a rich deep colour and very good covering power, ideal for a wide range of applications. It is highly durable and is heat and water resistant, being easy to apply, with good brushing and spreading properties.

Crackle Glaze

Designed to produce consistent cracking of emulsion paint. This acrylic medium creates dramatic two colour aged effects. The crackle glaze is applied over an emulsion base coat which will be the colour of the cracks. An emulsion top coat in the chosen colour is then applied over the glaze. The top coat cracks to reveal the base coat.

Cracqulure System

By using a simple two part (base coat and top coat) clear acrylic system this varnish faithfully reproduces the regular crazed pattern associated with old porcelain glazes. Please note that you need to buy both the base coat and the top coat to create the effect. The crackle effect produced by craquelure can be accentuated with a crack highlighter which is available in either white or dark brown for a truly aged finish.

Classic Scumble

An acrylic glaze which when coloured with satin or matt emulsion/latex can be used to produce semi transparent coloured paint effects. For water and wear resistance, allow a minimum of 48 hours before protecting with Polyvine Decorators Varnish (gloss, satin or dead flat). Test on a small area of the effect before application.

Original Scumble

A unique acrylic transparent glaze for decorative paint work. Unique in providing up to one hour working time. Dries to a durable water resistant finish on a wide range of surfaces. This interior or exterior glaze is the first water based product to reproduce faithfully the beauty of traditional oil finishes. Colour with universal acrylic colourant to produce stunning decorative paint effects.

Oil Scumble

A traditional transparent oil glaze with an extended drying time for decorative paint work. Dries to a translucent gloss finish on a wide range of surfaces. Can be tinted with Polyvine Woodgrain Oil Colourant, most oil based paints, or universal stainers. After brushing the coloured Scumble over the base coat the desired decorative effect is created by breaking the surface with a crumpled rag, bag, sponge or a Polyvine tool or brush.
