Auro 250 Natural gloss paint is available in white as standard, but can be bought as a premixed colour or you can even tint it yourself. This wonderful and easy to use eco friendly solvent free natural gloss paint is dust dry in six to nine hours, and is perfectly recoatable after 24 hours. In 'standard' conditions the final hardness of the paint is around 3 days.  

Priming: We suggest to pretreat certain wood types that are perhaps rich in active substances with our Auro Special primer No. 117, and for other wood types and normal wood types we would recommend thinning Auro 250 with up to 20% water and use actually AS the thin primer - before applying two to three coats of this Auro 250 natural gloss paint. Please allow 24hrs between coats, and lightly key between coats for best adhesion.

Is white the white I would expect? It is a characteristic of natural paints that they are not brilliant or pure white, but they are classified as white - white covers quite a scale, Auro 260 and Auro 250 paints achieve a whiteness level of 94% against EN13300 and as such are considered white. We are conscious that white is a very wide spectrum and people have different expectations which is why we also recommend people try testers to ensure satisfaction; our experience is that a huge majority of our customers prefer the white a little warmer that the stark brilliant whites - again all personal taste and perception though. We produce a cream and ivory finish in the range and there is a distinct difference the white is certainly a little more creamier than a brilliant white, when painted on I would expect the first coat at least to be a little of coloured when using a deep coloured primer, although over subsequent coats the colour we know as white will be achieved.
