Lincrusta

Sheasby & Son is now an approved installer of Lincrusta – the only painter and decorator based within 10 miles of central Derby to offer this highly specialist skill.

Lincrusta is a premium brand that has offered high-quality, durable wallcoverings, friezes, panels and other decorative effects since 1877.

The essential ingredient is a gel made from linseed oil and wood flour, which hardens as it dries – many examples over a hundred years old can still be found.  The gel is placed on canvas and rolled between steel rollers to emboss highly ornate and eye-catching designs.

Lincrusta is still manufactured with the same time-proven techniques, using many of the original rollers to achieve a timeless, classical elegance.

A range of styles covering different eras can be specified – including Gothic, Georgian or Italian Renaissance.  The application of paint can add further decorative finishes including marbling or glazing.

As a specialist wallcovering, Lincrusta requires specialist installation skills.  In order to be able to offer this service to our customers, Sheasby & Son undertook a training course in order to learn all of the necessary skills and techniques needed to apply Lincrusta with confidence.

As an approved installer, we hold a Certificate and a Lincrusta Skills Card – please ask if you’d like to see our credentials.
