Paint is a kind of coating used for colouring and protecting objects and its
usage area is very wide.
The reason we need to paint is often decorative purpose, but its main
purpose is to protect and cover the surface. In general, paints consist of three main substances as pigment, solvent, and glue.
Depending on the location, different materials can be used to bring different properties
to paint or to strengthen the structure of the paint.
It is possible to classify the paints according to the places of use or their solvents.
According to places of use:
1- Paints used on interior and wall surfaces
2- Paints used on exterior and wall surfaces
3- Paints used on wooden surfaces
4- Paints used on metal surfaces
According to solvents:
1- Water based paints 2- Solvent based paints (synthetic based)
The sense that is created as a result of light breaking in our eye’s retina is called “colour” and every colour reflects us with different physiological responses to the light. Isaac Newton is the scientist who first scientifically handled the issue of colour. In 1670, he divided the sunlight in a triangular prism, separated it into its components on paper, and obtained the colour spectrum, namely the rainbow effect. This colour spectrum is a colour wheel that can be quickly rotated. The colour created when this colour wheel is rotated quickly is white. So the white light is formed by the combination of all the colours in the rainbow.
Colour studies on Isaac Newton’s invention continued to be reviewed. William Herschel measured the degree of colours in this prism and found that red light is in the highest temperature and the purple light is in lowest temperature. Thus he obtained the today’s definition of hot colour and cold colour.
According to the severity of the colours, 2 groups are separated as hot and cold.
Hot Colours are yellow, red, yellow + red blends resembling fire, flame.
Cold Colours are blue, blue – red, blue + yellow blends resembling water, air.
Main and Accent colours;
Our main colours are Red, Yellow, Blue.
Our accent colours are created by combining 2 main colours.
Red + Yellow = Orange
Red + Blue = Purple
Blue + Yellow = Green
Since each colour is obtained from the combination of white, it is not considered as colour. Black is the reflection of light. So, black is colourlessness.
The accent and main colours are 6 colours in total. The 7th colour, the “colourlessness” of colour is black. Discover your eighth colour with us…
You can pre-apply a small area of the surface to better understand the colour of the surface to be painted. The light condition of the room is very important at this point. Some colours look different in natural light and different in the electric light. The important point after the light factor is the colours of the objects in the room where the surfaces to be painted are in. You can achieve the perfect result by balancing hot and cold colour.
