About Fleur

About the Fleur paint ranges

Fleur paint is made in Italy. It is produced by a family-owned business established over 80 years ago and run today by the third generation.

Fleur paint is made using ancient and traditional recipes, based on a high content of natural pigments that refract and diffuse the light, giving the colours exceptional vibrancy. Fleur paint is water-based, eco-friendly, low in VOCs and comes in containers that are fully recyclable.

Fleur Paint comes in two finishes, Chalky Look and Eggshell. There are over 80 beautiful colours across the two ranges, plus an array of decorative finishes including metallics, pearl paint, pouring mediums, etc.

Fleur paint offers excellent coverage and adhesion, with no need to prime or sand on most surfaces. It's self levelling too: you can see the brush strokes disappear before your eyes.

Fleur paint can be used on wood, stone, terracotta, metal, decorative glass and plastic.

About Chalky Look and Eggshell finishes

Chalky Look is not chalk paint!

The name "Chalky Look" refers to the very matt finish, as this paint offers a sheen level below 2%.

This is an acrylic paint containing silicates and fine minerals. It is these elements that when the light hits the surface gives the intense vibrancy of colour that you would not otherwise see in a matt paint.

Chalky Look is not an open paint the same as chalk paint, it just appears chalky. Unlike chalk paint, Chalky Look is sealed and so doesn't require a wax or varnish to make it stick to the substrate. You can apply a varnish for added protection if desired: I would recommend a matt varnish to retain the chalky look.

Chalky Look is available in paint pots, paint pens and sprays.

Coverage is approx. 12m²/L on non-absorbing or primed surfaces.

Fleur Eggshell

Eggshell offers a slightly satin finish with a sheen level of 20%.

This is an acrylic paint containing silicates and fine minerals. As with the Chalky look, it's these elements that when the light hits the surface gives the intense vibrancy of colour. The recipe formula is adjusted to give an eggshell finish.

There is no need to protect Fleur Eggshell with varnish, as it is extremely durable once cured. It's wipeable and washable, making it ideal for tough usage areas such as tables, chairs and kitchen cabinets.

Coverage is approx. 12m²/L on non-absorbing or primed surfaces.

Paint Markers

These contain Chalky Look paint, but in a pen!

They have an extremely matt finish, that will adhere to, and be permanent, on most surfaces. The paint is fade resistant.

The pens have good firm nibs, and the paint flows easily giving crisp and precise lines. They are ideal for writing with and for adding depth and interest to your crafting or furniture projects.

All colours come in the 2-4mm tip; Titanium White and Black also come in the fine 1-2mm tip

Fleur Metallics

Fleur Metallics come in 6 colours and contain extra fine metallic pigments encapsulated in a special blend of water-based acrylic binders.

They are hardwearing and offer excellent adhesion, with no need to prime on most surfaces. They can also be used outside.

Coverage is approx. 8m²/L on non-absorbing or primed surfaces.

Fleur Pearls

Fleur Pearls come in 8 fashionable pearlized colours that can be applied as a glaze or in thick layers.

This is a gel paint with multifunctional uses: it can be applied with a brush or sponge for a glazing effect, or with an artist's painting knife, spatula or spalter to add contour, depth and dimension.

It can also be used to stencil or découpage for furniture, crafts, paintings, walls, decorative objects, etc.

These paints have excellent adhesion and can be used on almost any surface.

Coverage is approx. 8m²/L on non-absorbing or primed surfaces.
