Calling all pro painters: DULUX Paints announces first-of-its-kind painters’ marketplace

Calling all pro painters

Invites professional painters, contractors to join national online network
TORONTO, May 9, 2017 – If you’re a professional painter or contractor looking to brush up your painting skills and grow your business, DULUX Paints has an opportunity for you. The leading paint brand in Canada has launched an online painters’ marketplace to identify professional painters and contractors from coast to coast who are trained in applying new, leading-edge Dulux Effect Finishes paint.
Introduced in late 2016, the unique Dulux Effect Finishes line – which includes Dulux VENETIAN SILK paint and Dulux LIQUID METAL paint – transforms walls into luxurious, one-of-a-kind masterpieces in two easy steps. Dulux Venetian Silk paint uses innovative technology to infuse walls with visual depth and sophistication, while Dulux Liquid Metal paint adds fluid elegance to any room. 
Throughout 2017, Dulux Paints is offering one-day Dulux Effect Finishes training workshops for professional painters and contractors country-wide. Offered for $300, the full-day, hands-on course includes a supply of Dulux Effect Finishes products, applicators, sample board and colour tools – with a value well beyond the cost of the course, said Martin Tustin-Fuchs, brand manager for the Dulux Paints brand by PPG.
“It’s a win-win opportunity for the paint trade,” he said. “Our message to pro painters is that Dulux Paints will train you under professional guidance on how to use our new product, and then we will help raise awareness of your skills and services through our new online marketplace so you can attract and better serve clients.”
“Our goal is to support Canada’s top professional painters and contractors, while enabling them to differentiate themselves in a competitive market with a unique skill set and tools affiliated with a leading paint brand,” Tustin-Fuchs said. “You don’t need to be an artist to create a masterpiece with Dulux Effect Finishes, but with the proper training, you can take the results of a paint job to the next level, delivering striking walls that completely transform a decor, even if nothing else in the room changes.”
Accessed at, the national marketplace features a growing list of pro painters and contractors organized by region. “Each month, additional pro painters will be added as they become trained in using Dulux Effect Finishes,” Tustin-Fuchs said.
