How to Use ClaypaintEarthborn - Muddy Boots Oliver Heath

Just like a conventional emulsion, Claypaint can be applied using a brush, roller, or spray. Bear in mind that the method of application will affect the finished texture of the paint: a roller will create the most texture (the longer the roller hair, the greater the texture) and spray will offer the least. For the best finish, most people find that a short pile roller is the ideal application tool.

Can I use Claypaint for Kitchens and Bathrooms?

Claypaint is ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms as its breathability reduces the occurrence of condensation, mould, and mildew. It is still best to use a tiled splashback behind sinks and cookers or shower enclosures.
