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. These paints target a wide range of markets including Home & Building Décor (especially 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 also 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 enabled us to become a one-stop-shop for all Glow-in-the-dark party and event requirements. Our Body Paint products include Glow-in-the-dark, Neon UV, Invisible UV and Metallic paints. We also have Fake Blood as well as Wound and Zombie Kits. 

We have subsequently also become a significant supplier of a wide range of Special Effect Pigments and Colourants that are used in a wide range of home and industrial applications.

We also specialise in the supply of Resin Art 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 have also added 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 South African market. We primarily sell via our online shop but a few great retailers also stock some of our products. Our online shop offers detailed technical advice, realistic pictures and links to applicable videos on our YouTube channel. In order to give the required details we do not sell via other general online shops, only from our own. Unlike other online shops we have a very helpful sales office that can also email technical information and accepts emailed orders for those who don't want to buy 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.
