Walls with Chiaroscuro effect using Erametal

Metallic, shiny, smooth. Chiaroscuro is an effect for particularly scenic interiors, characterised by light and dark chromatic modulations that are well matched with modern and cosmopolitan environments, integrating with all living spaces: from the living area to the bedroom, to commercial spaces. This decoration is realised using the Erametal product, a water-based finish embellished with a mixture of selected metal pigments to create luminous and iridescent effects on the wall. The colour chart evokes the world of metals, touching shades of gold, silver, bronze, copper… But there are also colours inspired by graphite, anthracite and oxidation.

Marmorino with Marmorin. Transparent walls, to contemplate

Another idea for those who focus on timeless elegance and want to decorate the vertical space with wavy and sophisticated effects is Marmorino, suitable for indoor and outdoor environments. Realised with the Marmorin product it is the ideal solution to create chromatically vibrant walls, with shading and unique and unrepeatable tonal depths . Moreover, being a product based on lime putty and marble powder, the walls are breathable and particularly healthy.

Enveloping chromatic dialogues with the Velatura effect for walls

If we are talking about walls with the chiaroscuro effect, it is impossible not to mention those made with the „Velatura” decoration. It is a wall finish with a delicate design, in which the great protagonists are the play of transparency and sedimentation of different tonal levels, rendered by the applicator through the tight dialogue between the background colour of the wall and the thin surface layer. It is a classic decoration, suitable for elegant and refined environments, available both on smooth surfaces and on material areas, using different tools. For example, the photo application was created by applying water-resistant universal matte enamel Viero Vel on a Multiquartz base, a quartz-based paint, filler, masking and very opaque that can be used both as a primer for decorative effects (ensuring adhesion on difficult substrates) and as a finishing product.
