autentico paint uk
Founded by Dutch artisans Eric & Ris, Autentico was created as a result of their working in England creating bespoke, high quality oak furniture together with a range of specialist paint techniques for furniture, walls and ceilings. Realising the paints available did not cater to their requirements, Eric and Ris set about developing their own brand. More than a year later of experimenting and working with experienced paint technologists, the Autentico Vintage range launched in 2011. The brand quickly gained a large and loyal following of retailers, professional upcyclers and decorators and now Autentico have expanded their ranges and offer not only a wide choice of paint for interiors and exteriors, they also retail specialist products including Lime Paint and Volterra (which provides a concrete effect finish).
