About the Product

The HV'Art Paint & Lacquer System can be made in any color, has a hard crystal quality, a soft silky-smooth finish and in formulation is equivalent to the paints & lacquers used by premium furniture makers. Included in the system are: adhesion promoting primers & undercoats, tinted lacquer paint for furniture painting & a ‘Decorative Canvas’ as a base for decorative glazes. There are four different setting ‘Lacquer Glazes’ for all decorative finishes & a range of crystal lacquers with 9 sheens available starting from ‘Mineral 00’ Deep Flat working their way incrementally to the ‘Ceramic 90’ Ultimate Gloss. These lacquers can be used in conjunction with the HV’Art additives for ultimate durability.

This specialist lacquer paint range has been brought to market in collaboration with Elmbridge supplies, a 3rd generation family business based in Gloucester, who have the production facilities and flexible approach needed to support the demands of the decorative finishes industry.

Formulated in the United Kingdom by the HV'Art team for Henry Van Der Vijver Decorative Artworks.

Achieve Ultra High-Gloss

A luxurious ultra high-gloss mirror finish can be achieved through the process of application, followed by sanding with a high quality low variable speed handheld sander, and then reapplication.  Each lacquer sheen can have a natural finish with fine brush strokes or can be sanded to a mirror like effect.

Our Eco-Friendly Stand

Water-based solvent free:  We have been instrumental in the environmentally friendly water borne paint movement in the UK and although est. in 1988 the business has been trading as a ‘Green’ business since 1996 believing in looking after the planet, ourselves & our clients. It is our policy to use as few if any solvents as possible. We combine traditional skills with the continual improvement in modern waterborne technology so that our designs and finishes create minimal environmental impact. Unlike traditional oil-based paint systems our finishes are multi layered & quick drying making their conservation more cost effective. We use our own HV’ART Lacquer Paint™ system for basecoats, furniture painting, decorative glaze finishes & lacquering & other than any specialist primers and stoppers this system is relatively odorless, solvent free, colour-fast & non-yellowing which ensures that there will be minimal if any discoloration even in direct sunlight or behind furniture & paintings etc.

Developed in the U.K. 

The HV'Art product range has been developed by the team of craftsmen at Henry van der Vijver in London.  It is a unique waterborne, environmentally friendly paint and lacquer system for specialist surface designs and finishes.

Drying times are indicative because they depend on temperature, humidity, & importantly air flow conditions.

Drying of waterborne products must take place at temperatures not below 15°C and at a relative humidity preferably not exceeding 85%. Out of these limits, there is a slowing down of the drying and/or formation of a less hard and resistant film. It is always advisable for drying to be forced, with air previously de-humidified and warm (20-30°C).
