All that glitters isn’t gold…but we can come close! Bathe in gilded luxury at home by painting your walls with DECORe Perlescente. Boysen Paints has several decorative finishes for you to choose from. We have DECORe Classic, Marmorino, and even Konstrukt Lunar Series. But, if you’re looking for something that’s a little more shiny and eye-catching, DECORe Perlescente might just be for you.
What is DECORe Perlescente?
DECORe Perlescente is a decorative, environment-friendly paint finish that uses natural oxides to create interiors with hints of gold and silver. Its technologically advanced formulation blends resins in a water-based solution and provides metallic accents that give your home a beautiful atmosphere of exclusivity and prestige.
On a more technical note, DECORe Perlescente can be applied on interior concrete, wood, and drywall surfaces. Avoid using this product on high friction areas such as fixtures and furniture. We don’t want those glittering accents to wear off now do we?
Glitz and Glam Shades
This system is made up of 3 components: an undercoat, a base, and Perla di Luce pearlescent pigments. You can mix and match the base tones with the different shiny and shimmering Perla Di Luce accents to create your own masterpiece. However, if you want to be extra, extra sure on what the outcome will be, check out our recommended swatches below!
How do I apply DECORe Perlescente?
Like with any other paint job, always make sure that the surface is properly primed before proceeding with anything. Prime concrete surfaces using BOYSEN Permacoat Flat White or BOYSEN EcoPrimer. To obtain the correct finish for Perlescente, it’s important to apply the product over its matching undercoat. For example, if you choose the shade Lucca (blue), both the undercoat and the base should be in the Lucca color as well.
Step 1: Apply DECORe Perlescente Undercoat
Apply 1 to 2 coats of your chosen DECORe Undercoat on the surface by using a brush, roller, or airless spray.
Step 2: Mixing the Right Shade of DECORe Perlescente Base
For best results, mix about 200 grams of the Perla Di Luce into the DECORe Perlescente Base. Gradually add in the Perla Di Luce powder to the base while constantly mixing. This ensures that the powder is fully integrated into the base. Afterwards, use a power mixer to maximize the luster of the metallic powder.
Step 3: How to Apply DECORe Perlescente
Apply the resulting mixture over the DECORe Undercoat with cross-hatch strokes using a DECORe Brush. After 5 to 10 minutes, smooth over the surface using the DECORe Scraper.
