The Tropics – Summer 2022 Wave Contest


Colorantic is taking part in this summer’s 2022 Wave Contest. This year’s theme is “The Tropics”.

For the occasion, we have decided to inspire you by painting decorative paddles, with our Colorantic chalk-based paint. We even prepared a short video.

Here’s how to paint decorative paddles with Colorantic chalk-based paint… A beautiful decorative idea that’s simple to do and doesn’t take a lot of time. The Wave Contest has inspired us to recreate and surpass ourselves each time with our ideas and our projects. Painting decorative paddles with Colorantic, and bring the tropics closer, why not?

Steps to follow:



1. First, it is always best to clean your furniture to make sure that varnish, grease, dirt and other residues are gone. We used our Colorantic Cleaner and Varnish Remover and let it work for 30 minutes. Wipe with a cloth and check for residue. Repeat, if necessary, a second time with our Cleaner and Varnish Remover.


2. Second, take Colorantic adhesive green tape to create the lines on the paddle to paint symmetrically and straight. Create your own design on the decorative paddle.


3. In the third step, paint the decorative paddle with your choice of colours. In this case, we stay focus tropical-themed contest, we opted for our Grapefruit, Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Lemon Pie colours.

Steps to follow…



4. Wait until everything is dry. With the Colorantic chalk-based paint, you will see, it will be fast. Make sure it is completely dry before going to the next step.


5. Repeat the same process with the green adhesive tape and make other patterns or lines according to your desire.


6. Apply our Colorantic Matte Varnish at the very end. Make sure everything is completely dry before you start. Leave to cure and start again if it’s necessary.
