Technical Qualities
ENCANTO is a special, water based, decorative paint
whose simple application, delicate blended tones and
precious metallic accents that, according to the light,
create elegant, shimmering reflections, confirm the union
between antique techniques and modern product giving
the surroundings a charming and prestigious feel that
is difficult to obtain with a normal paint. The product is
easy and quick to use and gives no problems of joints
during application. Thanks to its composition, the product
can be used in interior settings, giving the surfaces a
charming effect with a transparent metallic veil. With
Encanto antique art, modern design and fashion, as if by
magic, are brought together in a single product, leaving
an enchanting look on the wall made up of coloured,
metallic accents. ENCANTO is vapour permeable, has a
low odour level, is non inflammable and friendly to both
humans and the environments.
Ideal Use
Decoration of interior surfaces.
Surface Preparation
New surfaces should be dry and fully matured. For
powdering surfaces or surfaces with old paint that is
no longer well attached, proceed to clean the surface
removing any loose or crumbling material. Following this,
proceed to apply a coat of CRILUX or NEOFIX by Oikos.
Apply one or two coats, according to requirements, of
FONDO MURALES, in order to obtain an even white
surface. As an alternative, using ULTRASATEN OPACO
by Oikos as a base coat, it is possible to accentuate the
chromatic reflections and lengthen the drying time of the
finish product.
Application Method
Apply a coat of ENCANTO using the indicated Spanish
brush by Oikos, crossing over the brush strokes in order to
obtain an even distribution over the whole surface.
Should a more even, blended finish be desired, it is
possible to apply the ENCANTO in 2 coats, diluting
the product 20% with drinkable water and waiting
approximately 4 hours between coats.
Finish and Protective
To better protect ENCANTO from wear and tear, apply
the special transparent, protective varnish WATINS LUX
or IGROLUX by OIKOS. To achieve a finish with brilliant
reflections, it is possible to mix WATINS LUX or IGROLUX
with the additive DECORGLITTER by Oikos.
