Clay plaster Clay paint Tadelakt Color overview

Colors play an important role in our lives. They determine the atmosphere by their influence on our mood, they stimulate our senses and they largely determine our taste, whether we like something or not. The way a room is colored has complex effects on how the users feel. 

Discover the secret of – and the rich variety of Tierrafino color shades

In many ancient cultures, houses and especially temples were decorated with the most beautiful colors. Colors were unique, sometimes very rare, and no time was spared in bringing pigments on donkey or camel over thousands of miles. Stately buildings often display beautiful hues.
In recent years the demand for white in particular has been great and still trending. The look of businesslike , cleanliness, neatness, peaceful, and well organized, dominates the zeitgeist. Looking at the rich color chart below, it is curious in itself that the color white, which is not actually a color, dominates so much outdoors and indoors.

Let yourself go all the way with Tierrafino Color Clay – and Tadelakt colors!

Whether you want to use color to shape your personal atmosphere in your living or working space or, conversely, use color to have a “positive” influence. Let the colors from the surroundings flow in and flow over into your living or working space or, on the contrary, contrast and keep what is outside outside.

In the interplay of clay colors and pigments, the possibilities are unlimited

Tierrafino basically distinguishes between earth tones and pigments. With clay colors, we mix earth tones with colored clay and colored sand. With pigments, only a small percentage is added to colored plasters or paints.

If your color request falls outside our standard color shades, or you have a RAL colors or NCS code, we will develop your personal color preference for you.

This page is constantly evolving. When new color samples are created they will appear on this page. If you are interested in the many variations of our clay colors, it is useful to visit this page with some regularity.

Especially for professionals is the Technical Friday Morning. In 1.5 hours we explain clay construction in general and the technical applications of our clay products. There is no charge for our presentation.
