We build passion. Create artists. Help fill those gaps. Provide friendship. Build communities.

We just happen to do it though paints.

Frenchic Al Fresco outdoor chalk paint

With the weather so divine, our colour of the month has to come from our Frenchic Al Fresco range of outdoor chalk paint: the bright and bold Kiss Me Sloely, a colour inspired by the bright, blue Sloeberry. This easy one-step paint is a no-brainer and the first of its kind in the UAE. No sanding, no priming, no sealing required. Clean, paint, let dry and start using. It really couldn't be any easier. The Al Fresco range is weather and water-proof, making it the perfect paint for both outdoors, as well as indoor areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.
