Terra Fresco with Kemiko's Epoxy
Bob Harris developed a Skim Coat Line in 2010 for Kemiko!

This line is called, Terra Fresco by Bob Harris. This product has proven to be a great success. We recommend you carry this line for it is an excellent product and a great addition to the existing Kemiko Decorative Product Line and Kemiko's Industrial Epoxy and Urethane Products. An added feature for the Terra Fresco is the dissolvable Color Paks to integrally color the Microtopping.

Along with the Terra Fresco, Kemiko has taken on Bob Harris' line of Dyes, known to Kemiko as Kemiko Dyes by Bob Harris. Again, what a great complimentary product to the existing line of Kemiko Acid Stains.
