Otex Akvar

Hi all.

Any Tp or kitchen boys using Otex Akvar.

Surprised to hear that it’s very popular in this market amd yet I’ve never used it. Have been shipped some by accident so have some to hand, naturally, I’m concerned as to its stain blocking over oak so not going to use it.

Should I be concerned - can anyone give me confidence that it’s any good ?!!



Hi Lee,

I recently used Akvar on a new kitchen after testing it and I thought it was excellent. Like you I was nervous, however I would happily use it again. I found it went on much nicer then Otex & without the fumes of oil paint too! I shellacked any problem areas prior to applying. Holman’s can’t match it to very dark colour’s at the moment.
