This INFORM guide gives a background to traditional paint finishes and offers guidance on the available options when decorating a traditional home, considering old surfaces and materials and the appropriate paints to use.
Planners and Owners, Conservation and Heritage Enthusiasts
The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to create Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. It enables us to encourage understanding of traditional building materials and skills among the public and professionals and raise standards in conservation for traditional buildings.
