Paints designed specially for wood and/or metal. They give a nice lustrous finish to enrich the wooden surface. Highly wippeable and easy to maintain. They come in 3 attractive finishes and both oil and water based. Eggshell: has less of a sheen than silk or satin and it does look like the surface of an eggshell. It sits somewhere between matt and a silk finish and gives a beautiful classic look to woodwork – and can also be used on walls when you want a heritage style look with a tough finish(Only in water based version). Satin: a 'mid-sheen' finish, which means it looks like a slightly polished surface. Satin finish on woodwork helps to hide imperfections and gives colour a softer appearance. Gloss: a shiny finish designed for woodwork and it reflects lots of light – so is perfect for paler colours. You have to have a great surface to make it look its best, but it is hugely practical and adds a lovely contrast to walls that are painted in a matt.
