Vintage is the new ‘go to’ with Autentico Paint UK

 

Autentico Paint UK is an established decorating paint supplier that is sold across 90 retailers in the UK. They are committed to supplying the highest quality paints that are adaptable and suitable for all decorators, their customers and their home by creating products that work effortlessly together. Some of their features include a built-in water membrane that allows dirt to be wiped away with ease, a 5-year UV protection that ensures long-lasting and rich colour pay off, and a multi-functional paint for all surfaces.

 

For years, Ann Cope passionately transformed old furniture into bright and beautiful pieces for her customers with the help of Autentico Chalk Paint. She quickly grew into becoming the leading supplier for Autentico and is now the UK’s only distributor for award-winning products that can be used for not just furniture, but also internal and external walls.

 

“The ‘Vintage’ paint is a nationwide favourite and for good reason; as it has brought an entirely new paint system to the market. Not only can it be used for indoor and outdoor DIY projects, but it has been created with the focus of the customer and the environment,” commented Ann.

 

“With many modern paints, the ingredients list may include toxic chemicals that are dangerous to both the environment and human health. Typically, these are cadmium, lead and chromium, and are added to enhance elements such as pigments, binders, thickeners and driers. The Autentico ‘Vintage’ paint holds environmentally friendly binders and fillers that have no trace of harmful chemicals or toxins but still maintain an incredible pigmentation for all colour options. Therefore, if a pet was to chew on the leg of a chair, or a baby to teeth on their cot, they will be completely safe.”

 

Ann and Autentico’s aim is simple; they want every decorator to provide their customers with excellent standards and with Autentico Paint UK, they can guarantee their products provide a high-quality finish whilst ensuring the safety and wellbeing of every household.

Although it has been a specialist manufacturer of paint brushes for many years, until now it has only produced for other, better known, brands and under their names rather than its own. However, with the launch of the “Spirit” and “Spirit Oval” ranges, under the “Pioneer” brand, all this has changed.

 

Pioneer is a UK invested company operating internationally with a workforce of 100 people and over 65 years experience in brush making, supplying to customers in over 35 different countries across the World. It specialises in producing high quality professional grade paintbrushes using both modern techniques and the hand craft brush making skills that others have left behind to produce brushes of the finest quality that will perform and will last.
