Rated 4 out of 5 by AliceF Great colour, poor coverage
I'm a bit torn on this one. I love the colour once finished, but boy does finishing it take some effort. First of all, it's not a one coast paint as advertised. Even after two coats, it dries rather patchy. In some areas I had to go over it multiple times to get a consistent finish. The fact that the paint is thick (as other reviewers have pointed out) is not a problem in itself, what is problematic is the effort one has to go through to get a good finish. But once finished, it does look great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by iJoe Thin first for textured paper
Really thick paint, was having trouble painting onto textured wall paper. Needs a stiff brush. Much easier to pre-wet the surface with another brush and then paint over the dampness, can do in 1/3 the time then. Will need to go over to remove patchiness. Great colour though, slight blueness to the grey and not as dark as I first feared.
Not sure what will be like on a smooth surface, but expect better. Doesn't drip easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosie Soooo impressed!
Although I did have to use 2 coats the results are amazing. Loved it so much that I also used the same colour on one wall in another room. Family and friends have admired it and a friend is thinking of using it in her house. It looks classy!

I love the colour it is really strong deep grey, it has a great matt finish. It is meant to be one coat paint but one was not enough it was still really patchy but after two coats the finish was faultless. The paint itself was quite thick which made it a bit harder to use than other Crown paint i've used
I Love the result but don't think I'd buy the solo coat again, much prefer normal Crown paint
