How much paint do I need?

Is solvent or water based paint better?

Creative Resins offers both systems depending on your requirements. Water based paint is designed using the latest technology with the added benefits of it being more environmentally friendly, with low odours and low to Zero VOC content.  Solvent based paint is the more traditional choice. It is very versatile and recommended if the area you are working in does not have a controlled environment. Here are some benefits of both paints:

  • Colour fast warranty
  • Easy to apply
  • Quick drying
  • Long lasting
  • Tough & durable
  • Professional finish

Can I use water based and solvent based paints together?

Water based and Solvent based products are not compatible.

Is your paint low odour?

All Creative Resins water-based paints are low odour.

How many coats of paint should I use?

There are conditions specific to your project that can affect this, but we would always recommend a minimum of two coats.

Our paints have excellent coverage; they are high-opacity base and our pigments are highly concentrated. You should always clean and prepare surface to be painted.

Is your paint suitable to apply by roller?

Some of our paints can be applied using traditional rollers, depending on the desired final appearance.

Rollers provide a smooth uniform finish on well-prepared areas. Paint brushes can be useful for edging and uneven surfaces.

For further information about application of each paint type please contact our technical department – 0044 (0) 1795 411820 /

Can your paint be applied using a conventional spray gun or aerosol can?

Most of our surface coating products can be applied using either a conventional Spray Gun, Aerosol, Paint Roller or brush systems depending on your requirements and substrate.

I can’t find the colour I want?

Creative Resins offer a vast menu of colours from all well-known brands and corporate colour reference books. We are also able to colour match to a specific colours and shades if you can provide us with a sample.

How is colour matching done?

Paint colour is created through a combination of colorants and bases that can literally reproduce millions of colours. Your colour sample is measured for paint colour matching via a photo-spectrometer that can read any colour the human eye can see. The measurements are turned into a paint formula to create your custom colour and sheen.

What if I run out of a colour?

It is always best to try and purchase a sufficient amount of paint required for 100% colour consistency.  While it is possible to match a colour to an existing colour supplied slight variations may occur.
