G.U.D, a paint used by Australian artist Frank Hinder (see Elizabeth
McCarthy's recent enquiry) could well be a generic term rather than
the initials of a particular type of paint.

That being the case the most likely origin would be that of G.U.D
Holdings, an Australasian company with a long history of
manufacturing and managing many of Australia's leading brand names.

Contact details are shown below. I would suggest contacting the
Marketing division as they are more likely to have access to company
archives and information relating to brands no longer forming a part
of the company's portfolio.
