About Us

Bastion Paint was founded in South Africa in 2007 by Brian Quicke.

Our company initially began by manufacturing premium architectural paints but soon began with the development of Special Effect Paints. Special Effect Paints grew into a major division boasting a significant range of highly innovative products and we therefore discontinued our architectural paint range to focus on speciality products. These paints target a wide range of markets including Home & Building Décor (includeing feature walls), Arts & Crafts, the Entertainment Industry and Safety & Security applications for industry & home. Our art paints include very successful product ranges for Western Marbling and Acrylic Pouring. We manufacture a very wide range of Metallic Paints and a number of unusual paint products. 

We combined technical expertise in paints and cosmetics to develop a range of Special Effect Body Paints. We soon became famous for our spectacular Body Glow Paints which we have supplied to thousand of Glow-in-the-dark parties and events. Our Body Paint products include Glow-in-the-dark, Neon UV, Invisible UV, Metallic Paints and Stage Blood.

We have subsequently become a significant supplier of a wide range of Special Effect Pigments and Colourants that are used in a wide variety of home and industrial applications. In addition, we offer small ranges of Cosmetic Pigments and Food Colourants. 

We also specialise in the supply of Resin Art and Resin Counter Top Products including high quality, UV stable imported Epoxy Resins as well as other resin art products including a very wide range of resin compatible pigments (liquids and powders) and Silicone Moulds. We also offer a significant range of Crystals and Stones specifically for resin projects and arts & crafts applications. 

Bastion Paint exports to many countries but has its main focus on the Southern African market. We primarily sell via our online shop but some retailers also stock our products. Our online shop offers detailed technical information and advice, realistic pictures and links to applicable videos on our YouTube channel. In order to provide the required product details and application information we do not sell via other general online shops, only from our own. Unlike many other online shops we have a very helpful technical sales office that can email technical information and accepts emailed orders for those who don't want to place their orders online. 

We continue to launch new innovative products while always focusing on our core objectives of supplying defect free products with excellent customer service and manufacturing in an environmentally responsible manner. We love our environment and the animals that share it with us.
