South Africa-based Earthcote offers a palette that "captures the style and spirit of the African aesthetic, focusing on colors inspired by the themes of Africana found in rustic safari lodges and farmsteads of the Cape wine lands." Offerings include iron paint (includes iron filings to create a rusty rustic aged finish) and limestone paint (a glass bead acrylic paint that creates a soft sandblasted look).

The paints are available in Africa and the Netherlands; go to Earthcote for dealer information.

Above: Palermo is a resin-based stucco finished with Earthcote Wall Wax to create a super-polished look; available in shades ranging from Vuvuzela Clay to Pongola to Barber Shop White.

Above: Warm Leather incorporates Earthcote Wall Wax to create an aged, grainy leather look; available in shades ranging from Polished Veldskoen to Shabby Chamoise.
