ALTAIR – Metallic Effect

Inspired by the brightest star in the constellation Aquila, Altair gives a very elegant and precious metal finish on the walls. The combination of gold and silver bases with the 15 toners offers a wide range of colors and inimitable results that are perfectly suited to the most sophisticated needs and locations. The extremely smooth consistency of ALTAIR makes possible different methods of application and the realization of decorative effects such as the striped effect, the mosaic effect, the sea effect and the brushed effect, which often require the experience of the applicator.
