New Glastonbury based paint company Thorndown, has developed and created two new unique paint ranges for the home and garden.
Their revolutionary new Peelable Glass Paint is made using a 100% recycled plastics resin and is perfect for greenhouse shading, but also great inside the home for conservatory shading or privacy screening on over-looked windows.
Scope for the arts & crafts market is vast as this water-based, virtually VOC free, non-toxic paint can also be used for festive decorating on windows, stencilling, and creating stained glass windows cheaply and easily.
Ben from Thorndown says “Our unique Peelable Glass Paint makes very effective shading and it is pretty addictive too. Like us, customers will be thinking about what they can paint next and as it comes from recycled plastic waste that previously went into land fill, the satisfaction and enjoyment from using it is all the greater”.
Thorndown’s new high-performing water-based Wood Paint uses the latest in technology, with an advanced water-repellent resin plus exterior grade colour pigments that are VOC free and long-lasting. Developed for all types of exterior timber it can be used anywhere and on anything out in the garden or inside the home.
Thorndown’s Managing Director Ben Thornborough says, “I had become increasingly frustrated by the unnecessary complexity of the woodcare category. The trend to create sub categories of sub categories only serves to confuse the customer further, and take up valuable shelf space instore. So we carefully crafted our paints to be so versatile and easy to use the only decision a customer has to make is which colour to choose.
"Professionals and home consumers rave about the Wood Paint as the best in the market for ease of use and performance. Using the latest VOC free technologies we have created a paint that can be used on any wood, anywhere; decking, sheds & summerhouses, garden furniture, kitchen cabinets, interior floors, and furniture. It’s a new type of wood care product that needs little preparation, is simple and easy to use and crosses all categories making it the only wood finish a store would need to stock.”
Director of Design, Caroline says “I’ve been an avid painter for many years and love getting stuck into painting projects inside and out in the garden. We have created a range of tins that not only look gorgeous but have practical improvements too.
"Our unique tins are wider making them easier to and more stable when in use. We have left plenty of room from the paint line to the top of the tin so that when you stir your brand-new paint tin, half of the paint doesn’t end up being slopped all down the sides of the tin.
"Core colour charts for both ranges ensure that popular and heritage tones are represented, along with primary colours that enable people to create their own shades by mixing colours together. At each stage of development we have ensured that simplicity and detailed thought combine to create a range of products that are fun and easy to use.”
Thorndown will be exhibiting their range of eco water-based Wood Paint and Peelable Glass Paint along with POS solutions at Glee Birmingham NEC, Hall 6 stand number 6S88 from 10th to 12th September 2018.
