Scyon Axon smooth painted in Dulux Leadman

Scyon Axon wood grain in Colorbond Estate

It seems logical to paint the wood grain texture of Scyon Axon 133 Grained cladding in a brown. So we chose "Estate" from the Colorbond roofing range which can be mixed in a variety of paint brands.

Scyon Axon 400 wide cladding in Colorbond Sandbank paint

A nice paint colour for Scyon Axon 400 smooth is "Sandbank" also from the Colorbond range.
