Garden Answers Feature

Thorndown-Paint-Garden-AnswersIf you’re an avid reader of this great gardening magazine (like me!) then you will spot Thorndown’s Peelable Glass on page 11 of the April issue.

It features a picture sent into us by one of our customers who decorated her greenhouse in an art-deco stained glass style. Linda removed her panes of glass, giving them a good clean then rinsing thoroughly with water to remove any muck or film that could block or repel the glass paint. She applied the translucent glass paints using a roller with a foam sleeve as they soak up less paint and leave a nice smooth finish. Linda only applied one coat but you can paint on a second for a more solid/opaque coating.

We think it looks great and is a quick and easy way to brighten up a greenhouse through the winter months. On a practical level it offers shading and screens untidy seed trays waiting to be cleaned for the new sowing season.

By planning your design and colour scheme, using Peelable Glass Paint can also turn your greenhouse into an attractive feature and part of your garden design.

We have teamed up with Garden Answers magazine to give away 20 x 150ml tins of Peelable Glass Paint in a colour of your choice. To enter all you have to do is send them a postcard or email (address details on p101 of the magazine) with your name, address and favourite colour. Good luck!

    Thank you for sharing the beautiful image of Linda’s Greenhouse – I first spotted it in my Garden Answers magazine and was absolutely chuffed to discover I can create something similar are home using your Peelable Glass Paints.

    The fact that you use 100% recycled plastics to make the paint is as exciting as it is innovative and I am putting a link to your website on my social media pages as I want to share your products with my friends.

    At the moment, I am looking at your colour charts and trying to decide which colour/s to choose, with such a wide variety I could have a different theme every year!

    Kind regards
