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 and quickly gained a large and loyal following of retailers. In 2018 professional upcycler and business woman Ann Cope of ShabbyAnd... took over the UK distribution arm of Autentico; Ann had been their leading UK supplier whilst also working as a professional upcycler, refurbishing and painting furniture as well as hosting furniture painting, creative techniques and upcycling workshops and Ann continues to host workshops from the Autentico HQ in Colchester, Essex, inspiring professionals and amateurs alike. Autentico offer a wide choice of paint ranges for interior and exterior use as well a wide variety of specialist products including Lime Paint and Volterra, which provides a concrete effect finish. The main ranges are available in 150 colours and are eco-friendly, breathable chalk-based paints of unrivalled quality.
