The event location in the Cologne Chocolate Museum was renovated in the course of the renovation with the ArteLasur by Caparol in a new color.

The enormous wall surface looks lively and is robust and easy to clean. The view is spectacular: through the huge glass front, the guests of the Bel Etage in the Cologne Chocolate Museum look out over the Rhine and cathedral. The backdrop attracts newlyweds for wedding celebrations and companies for employee events and conferences in the light-flooded gable room. Since the renovation, it has been presented in a fresh cream beige (Palazzo 120 from the Caparol 3D system), traversed by tiny white speckles, which gives the wall surfaces an animated effect.

Caparol ArteLasur - noble and robust

The old coat of paint in a somewhat darker shade was getting on in years, which is why the Schokoladenmuseum Gastronomie GmbH wanted a redesign.

The wall glaze, which can be tinted in around 350 shades, combines two features: a decorative effect thanks to the light-pigmented particles and high durability and cleaning ability. "We have 200 events a year here," explains Kathrin Henke, sales manager at Schokoladenmuseum Gastronomie GmbH, "because we need something easy to care for so that not every stain is immediately visible."

Special pigment effect

The challenge for painter Axel Bösing and his team was to apply ArteLasur evenly to this large area. Because the grazing light exposure from the panoramic glazing in the bright room is high. The painter received support from Caparol sales consultant Dennis Höch for planning and material procurement.

After sanding and priming the walls, the painters applied the glaze with the small ceiling brush in two courses. One had to work wet on the other, which is why at times nine painters were in use at the same time.

Increased intensity

The second application of glaze increases the color intensity, the number of bright particles and the surface resilience. This was followed by finishing with a soft wallpapering brush in order to achieve a smooth process. "This crushes the light pigment particles in the glaze," explains Bösing, "which ensures the white speckles and a milky effect."
