Sydney Harbour French Wash


Please call to order

Product Overview

"French Wash creates the look of delicate broken colour - a subtle marble-like finish which was discovered centuries ago by European masters."

"French Wash can be ragged, dragged or sponged to produce a variety of painted effects. French Wash is applied over a base colour of Low Sheen Acrylic to create a soft, broken look."



Sydney Harbour’s Low Sheen Acrylic covers approximately 450 to 550 sq. ft. per gallon, depending upon porosity, surface texture and wastage rates.

Sydney Harbour’s French Wash covers approximately 200 to 250 sq. ft. per quart, depending upon porosity, surface texture and wastage rates.


Due to the many options and colors available, we only sell Sydney Harbour Acrylic Paints in store or via phone order.
