    I want to paint our tiles at home at present they are shinny and because it’s more than 10 years in the house it’s becoming slippery

    1. Hi Mary!

      You can definitely paint tiles with Tjhoko with a few conditions.
      – Wall tiles work great – just as long as it is not inside a shower – there is too much moisture and we don’t advise it.
      – We also don’t advise painting floor tiles with tjhoko as these are high traffic areas.

      I will link a video below on how to go about painting tiles – your most important step is preparation.
      Clean the well (more than once if required) with powafix lacquer thinners and allow 40 mins to dry before painting.

    Hi Hanli,
    Was dit Melamien kombuiskaste wat jy so stunning geverf het? Ek wil so graag my kombuis ook doen, maar is vreeslik bang om die melamien te verf.

    1. Hi Belinda , below is a step by step guide on what to buy and how to paint your melamine kitchen cupboards: What you need:
      • Lacquer Thinners
      • 2 pieces Mutton cloth cut to the size of a kitchen towel
      • 110mm or 160mm foam roller and handle or paintbrush depending on your preference.
      • Instead of using a foam roller a Mohair roller can be used on large flat surfaces or cupboard doors
      • Paint Tray
      • Tjhoko Paint in a colour of your choice
      • Tjhoko’s Clear Glaze

      1. Clean the surface well with Lacquer Thinners.
      2. It is important to use gloves and a mask.
      3. Wait 20 minutes for Thinners to evaporate
      4. Pour some Tjhoko Paint in a paint tray
      5. Use the roller and wet it well in the paint ensuring that it is covered in paint all around.
      6. Start by evenly rolling the paint onto the surface. Don’t worry if air bubbles appear. These will disappear as the paint dries. Be careful not to over work the foam roller: Don’t roll too much – this is when a rough surface is created once the paint has dried.
      7. Also do not work where there is a draft or wind when painting with a roller. The wind will cause roughness once the paint is dry.
      8. On large flat surfaces a mohair roller can also be used with great success.
      9. Once the first coat is evenly applied, allow the paint to dry (more or less 30 minutes) before the next coat is applied.
      10. Once the paintwork has been completed wait at least 4 hours before starting the glazing process
      applying the clear glaze, always allow the paint to dry for at least 4 hours before starting with the glaze application. In coastal areas or during winter months we recommend to only start glazing the next day (leave paint to cure overnight).
      1. Dilute the Clear Glaze with 30% water (30ml of water for every 100ml of Glaze) or 3 parts Clear Glaze and 1-part water. (we recommend cooled, boiled water as it is less contaminated)
      2. On darker Tjhoko colours we recommend 50/50 (1-part Tjhoko Clear Glaze and 1-part water. You can also use this ratio for a less sheen finish.)
      3. Dampen a clean, colourless cloth with water and squeeze to remove all excess moisture. A Microfibre cloth works best.
      4. Dip the cloth completely in the mixture to absorb the mix and then squeeze to remove excess moisture.
      5. Evenly wipe onto the painted surface. Work in a well-lit room to ensure that the entire surface is covered. If streakiness or lines occur – (it is caused by the fabric / cloth) just apply a second coat, half an hour later.
      6. Should you wish to change colour or add paint techniques over the clear glaze, you can do so once it it has cured for an hour or longer.
