Random shine - Mico-Wakefield show stand

Mico-Wakefield stand at the Wellington Home Show The Mico-Wakefield stand at the Wellington Home Show gleamed with a myriad of Resene colours including a striking wall of Resene Enamacryl Metallic tinted to Resene Quadrant applied using a random roller technique. Metallics are a versatile finish that can be applied as a monolithic finish using spray or by brush or roller using a crow's foot technique. The crow's foot technique can be easily achieved by all applicators without requiring expensive application tools and can help to hide minor surface imperfections. This technique, usually created using a wide brush, is ideally suited to feature walls with well designed lighting to truly show off the stunning effect.

Mico-Wakefield staff quickly and easily applied the Resene Enamacryl Metallic with no prior experience of the product, provingthat getting the right finish first time is easy if you put your mind to it.
