  • I would like to know how much will it be for the full kitchen unit in grey color. Pretoria based

  • Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

  • Good day
    Pls advise does the paint come off after a while or need renewable?

      Hi Terie,Tjhoko Paint is a self-sealing, water-based, matt chalk paint it does not need a sealant unless you have the piece of furniture outside or in a room like the kitchen or bathroom where there is lots of moisture. The Glaze makes the surface water- and UV-Resistant. It also prevents stains and provides a more washable surface. We also recommend to seal tabletops and pedestal tops, kitchen and bathroom wall tiles (painting in showers not recommended). if you are wanting to apply the glaze then always allow the paint to dry for at least 4 hours before starting with the Glaze application. In coastal areas or during winter months we recommend to only start glazing the next day (leave paint to cure overnight)
      • Dilute the Clear Glaze with 30% water (30ml of water for every 100ml of Glaze) or 3 parts Clear Glaze and 1-part water.
      • Dampen a clean, colourless cloth with water and squeeze to remove all excess moisture.
      • Dip the cloth completely in the mixture to absorb the mix and then squeeze to remove excess moisture.
      • Evenly wipe onto the painted surface. Work in a well-lit room to ensure that the entire surface is covered. If streakiness or lines occur – (it is caused by the fabric / cloth) just apply a second coat, half an hour later.

  • Can I paint my kitchen counter top and apply glaze after? It is melamine.

      Hi Marina thank-you for the message, we do not recommend to paint counter tops as this is a surface that is repetitively used. A product that has been specially formulated for this purpose is recommend.

  • Hi i am new just want to know what is the diffrence between normal paint and tjoko paint. And how to use it.

    • Chrystal

      Hi Sonja!
      Thank you for getting in touch.
      Tjhoko Paint is a high quality chalk paint with a built in sealer that also requires no primer, it does not leave a chalky residue and is smooth and easy to apply.

      In regards on how to use it – we have a YouTube channel showcasing a ton of techniques and projects, as well as a Facebook page where we do weekly live videos for inspiration.

  • Can we use the paint on shower tiles

    Lanie els
    • Chrystal

      Unfortunately not, regular wall tiles work great – just as long as it is not inside a shower – there is too much moisture and we don’t advise it.
      – We also don’t advise painting floor tiles with tjhoko as these are high traffic areas.

  • Would tjhoko paint work If I want to paint on rough textured kitchen tiles? Would the process still be the same as on smooth tiles and would a paintbrush and foam roller still be used?

    Simonette
    • Lee-Ann

      Hi Simonette , yes the process would be the same below would be the process, we would advise a classic roller for the rough wall tiles. We do not recommend floor tiles. step 1 -Clean your surface PROPERLY with Lacquer thinners (we use Powerfix Lacquer thinners). Wear gloves and work in a well-ventilated space.
      Wait until the lacquer thinners is dry 20 – 40 minutes. I would then repeat the cleaning process again. (WE DON’T RECOMMEND TO PAINT ONTO A VARNISHED SURFACE IF THE SURFACE HAS BEEN VARNISHED WITHIN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. Varnish takes at least 6 months to cure. When painting onto an enamel surface – contact us at support@tjhokopaint.co.za to give the right advice.)

      Step 2 – Start painting. We recommend painting at least two coats. Very important when painting is to always allow a coat of paint to dry properly before the next coat of paint is applied. Depending on the colour being used a third coat would be necessary for example painting a white paint onto a darker surface.
      The equipment you use for painting also plays a role. A foam roller leaves a much thinner coat of paint than a paint brush. Therefore, more coats of paint would be required when working with a foam roller.

      The paint does have a matt finish (Tjhoko Paint is a self-sealing, water-based, matt chalk paint) it does not need a sealant unless you have the piece of furniture outside or in a room like the kitchen or bathroom where there is lots of moisture. The Glaze makes the surface water and UV-Resistant. It also prevents stains and provides a more washable surface. We also recommend to seal tabletops and pedestal tops, kitchen, and bathroom wall tiles (painting in showers not recommended).

      Step 3 – If you are applying the clear glaze, always allow the paint to dry for at least 4 hours before starting with the glaze application. In coastal areas or during winter months we recommend to only start glazing the next day (leave paint to cure overnight).
      1. Dilute the Clear Glaze with 30% water (30ml of water for every 100ml of Glaze) or 3 parts Clear Glaze and 1-part water. (we recommend cooled, boiled water as it is less contaminated)
      2. On darker Tjhoko colours we recommend 50/50 (1-part Tjhoko Clear Glaze and 1-part water. You can also use this ratio for a less sheen finish.)
      3. Dampen a clean, colourless cloth with water and squeeze to remove all excess moisture. A Microfibre cloth works best.
      4. Dip the cloth completely in the mixture to absorb the mix and then squeeze to remove excess moisture.
      5. Evenly wipe onto the painted surface. Work in a well-lit room to ensure that the entire surface is covered. If streakiness or lines occur – (it is caused by the fabric / cloth) just apply a second coat, half an hour later.
      6. Should you wish to change colour or add paint techniques over the clear glaze, you can do so once it it has cured for an hour or longer.
