City & Finance Reporter for the Daily Mail
Akzo Nobel has experienced the airspace in a collaboration with the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer.
Dulux owner Akzo's aerospace coatings were used for tiger, shark and eagle faces that were decorated with Embraer's business planes.
The coating of the paint company was also used for the rest of the outside of the aircraft.

The work was carried out by employees of Embraer's factory in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil, where an Akzo Nobel color mixing center is located.
Akzo's performance-coating business last year had sales of around £ 5.1 billion and made a profit of £ 595 million. The Dutch multinational has hit the French adhesive Disatech last year and is now working on decorative stickers for planes that advertise on their side.
Akzo, which employs approximately 3,500 people in the UK, is stabilizing after defeating three takeovers of US rival PPG last year.
Chief executive Thierry Vanlancker, who was appointed last year, sold Akzo's chemicals division for approximately £ 8.4 billion to Carlyle and Singapore's equity fund earlier this year.
