Why we love it
Auro is the first paint manufacturer to develop a fully automated tinting system for wall paints using consistently ecological earth and mineral pigments finely ground into pastes. This is the largest range of ready mixed natural paints available in Ireland. All the pigments used in the tinting are natural and VOC free too.
It is rated as A+ by the Agbb (Health – related evaluation of Emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds). The use of organic, natural and plant-based ingredients means that allergy and asthma sufferers and people who are chemically sensitive are much more able to tolerate Auro products and all ingredients are disclosed.
This product is a vegan friendly paint and impressively the paint is fully compostable.
The finish is a fine and smooth coating because the light clay used in the product is not granular or sandy.

How do I prime new plaster?
- We recommend using Plaster primer 301 for strongly or irregularly absorptive substrates. A quick test which can be done to see if the plaster is absorbent is, spray a small amount of water onto the surface and see if it is absorbed quickly, if it is, this primer should be used.
- Alternatively, new plaster can be primed by thinning out the first coat of white paint (321, 524, 331) with 10% water.
- The Grip coat primer 505 is suited for weakly absorptive and irregular substrates.
- We do not recommend painting a colour directly onto new plaster, it should be primed with a coat of white or plaster primer to give it a stable surface to be painted. If it is not primed this way the colour could look patchy due to differently absorbing areas.
Is this paint breathable?
Yes, this is a highly breathable paint, it has an sd value of 0.015.
I don't see the colour I previously ordered here, where would I find it?
Yes, we have updated our colour chart to offer a more extensive range of colours from our standard collection. Please contact email@example.com to let us know what other colour you would like. All colours are still available.

How to Install
It can be applied just like any other conventional paint, by brush, roller or sprayer. It is re-coatable after 4 – 6 hours. High humidity and low temperatures could lengthen drying times.
Suitable for all interior rooms, including kitchens, bathrooms and nurseries, older properties with potential damp problems, newly plastered walls and painting over previously painted surfaces. (We strongly recommend a test area to ensure compatibility prior to carrying out the job). The paint can also be used on wallpaper, plaster, clay plaster, concrete, brick and lime plaster.
Newly plastered walls should be primed with Auro Plaster Primer 301 if they are very absorbent (for example Gypsum Plaster) or alternatively priming must be done with a coat of white Auro 321, 331, 524 so that the finishing colour is consistent. If a colour is applied directly onto new plaster without priming the finish can be inconsistent and patchy. If any filling needs to be done the Auro Wall Filler 329 can be used.
When painting dark or vibrant colours more care needs to be taken. The surface should be primed with the Auro Grip Coat Primer 505 to establish a stable base and a consistent absorbency level for it to be painted, one coat of primer will suffice. Allow 6 hours drying time before applying your colour. Apply the colour quickly working to a wet edge. Allow 24 hours drying in between coats.
It is important if being used on new lime plaster that adequate drying time passes before painting. The pH level of new lime is high and this needs to neutralize before painting can take place.
For previously painted surfaces a test patch is always recommended for compatibility. On difficult or unknown surfaces, it is a good idea to use the Auro Grip Coat 505 as a primer.
Tools can be cleaned with water, add Auro Plant Soap 411 if needed.
