Auro 260 Colours Chart

This great natural matt silk eco friendly paint is water based and totally solvent free, and very low odour. Auro 260 is ideal as a top coat for interior metal and wood where you just don't need (or want!) a high gloss finish. Perfect for bathrooms, kitchens and doors as well as furniture, it's a great all round, high performance natural matt paint - suitable for pretty much everything.

This paint is tested and certified as 'safe for toys' as well as 'saliva and perspiration proof' thus perfect for kids toys and play areas, or as a natural nursery paint for toddlers and babies. This natural matt paint is both durable and wipeable, and also great when used as an egg-shell finish for high humidity areas such as kitchens and bathrooms, but it is primarily a wood finish.

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 260 with up to 20% water and use actually AS the thin primer - before applying two to three coats of this Auro 260 natural gloss paint. Please allow 24hrs between coats, and lightly key between coats for best adhesion. 

You are able to clean brushes with natural thinners such as Auro 191 Orange oil thinners

  • This natural matt silk paint is dust dry in 6 to 9 hours, re-coatable in 24hrs and totally hardened within 3 days.
  • Auro Natural Paints are based on organic linseed oil resins, using natural mineral and plant pigments for colour and chalks for fillers.
  • Coverage: 750ml = 10m2 
  • Interior use only
  • Available in many premixed colours, or just white. 
  • We always advise to try a tester pot first to guarantee colour is correct for your application.

You may be interested to know that unlike acrylics, Auro solvent free gloss or matt silk paints are not prone to any kind of cracking and peeling, as they are much tougher and flexible due to no chemical hardeners added. It takes longer to 'harden' than normal paints, but it's a much better solution for a longer lasting finish. 

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.
