William Nunn, proprietor of William Nunn Painting recently joined the ranks of painting professionals certified to work with Fine Paints of Europe coatings. William Nunn along with 20 other carefully selected painting professionals recently attended a weekend training session conducted by Fine Paints of Europe at the Woodstock Inn in Woodstock, Vermont, where he was formally introduced to each of the various Fine Paints coatings and best application techniques.

Fine Paints of Europe established the Certified Painter’s Program in order to provide American homeowners with a source of carefully screened contractors familiar with the entire range of Fine Paints of Europe paints and primers.

"Woodstock, Vermont is a curious place to go to learn about paint, in my estimation, but as it is so often in life those with a passion are seldom hanging out with the crowd. The experts at Fine Paints of Europe convened a small group of about 20 men and women from around the country, professional painters, who had come to learn about these excellent paints from the people who know them best," said Nunn.

"Just as the name implies, these coatings are built to a high standard in Holland, without the use of fillers, using only liquid sheen deadeners and highly refined pigments. Painting projects I have completed with Fine Paints exhibit a beauty and durability hard to match," continued Nunn.

Owner John Lahey personally conducted the day's events and spoke extensively on the specifications of each of the products and highlighted some of the noteworthy projects where these paints have been used.

Lahey explained that Fine Paints has developed relationships with special brands, beginning with Martha Stewart, and now with the Guggenheim Museum, George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate, Chistopher Peacock Cabinetry, and others who not only specify Fine Paints of Europe, but have developed their own colors with them, as is the case with the Guggenheim & Mt. Vernon. Colorist Emmet Fiore elaborated more on the different color collections Fine Paints has (17 in all), and more of the history of how these have been developed.

William summed up the weekend experience by say, "Domestic makers have been scrambling in recent years to learn the art and chemistry of building waterborne paint that levels, brushes easily, and uses very little in the way of volatile organic compounds in the production. The Dutch have been building such a paint for 30 years, and to self-imposed standards of quality. Fine Paints of Europe have been supplying waterborne, traditional solventborne, and outstanding clear finishes to the North American market since 1986, along with many of the best tools of the trade. The seminar this past weekend demonstrated their commitment to educate about their paints, the best methods and tools, and to support the select group of painters will ling to master the nuances of excellent painting and woodfinishing".

According to Fine Paints of Europe President John Lahey, William Nunn Painting was invited to participate by Fine Paints of Europe after the Vermont based paint importer became familiar with the quality of Bill's work. His clients have confirmed him to be a professional of superb standing who has completed many high quality projects throughout the Twin Cities using the durable, high-performance coatings imported from Holland by Fine Paints.

After fourteen years of experience using this top line of paint, today William Nunn is the only Minnesota contractor requested to attend Fine Paints and who has gained the full status of a Certified Painter For Fine Paints Of Europe.
