- More Info
Yolo works like any quality interior water based (acrylic) paint but with high solids content it tends to cover much better. This is a high quality, thick, fast drying paint that has such low odour that its pleasant to work with.
Colour Pallette Yolo has designed a beautiful and simple colour pallette. This can be viewed by borrowing (free) a design kit of 8"x10" sheets of real paint (no printed approximations). This ingenious system allows you to get a real feel for what the colour will look like on your walls without having to purchase wasteful sample tins. The Building Tree loans out complete Yolo Design kits to help you make your decisions. If you can't find the color in our palette that is just right for your room, other colors may be mixed from YOLO Colorhouse paint. Please ask! The Building Tree will bring in any colour in any quantity given a minimum 24 order turnaround (for more than 6 gallons total order, for smaller orders, please ask about our next ship date). This is because the paint is tinted with a 0-VOC tinter in Vancouver and arrives on overnight transport for our customers in Nelson. This is by far the most economical option for us so we appreciate your patience when planning to use this beautiful paint. We have recieved excellent feedback on the appearance and lack of odour with this product so we are sure you will find it worth the wait.
Sheens Flat, Eggshell, and Semi-gloss.
Though the tin claims 400 sq ft per gallon, we have consistently found the coverage to be higher. Our rule of thumb is that if you expect to apply two coats, get one tin for every 300ft2 of wall (that works out to around 600 sq ft per gallon, per coat)
The exception to this estimate is the bright Red (Petal 06) Red is traditionally a difficult colour given that a very translucent base is required to carry the proper pigmentation. Please account for an extra coat or two with Petal 06.
YOLO Colorhouse Inside zero VOC primer for wallboard is available for a complete zero VOC system.
YOLO Colorhouse zero VOC transitional primer is available to transition a surface from an oil-based paint to a water-based latex or acrylic paint.
