Really sorry but the quick drying properties make this disappointing. Dries so quickly (2 hours) which I thought would be good but if painting a panel door and complete a section at a time, then by the time you go back and try to join in with the first section, it has dried too much to make a good 'join' ( and I am a generally quick and methodical painter) Brush marks not easy to avoid either. The quick drying quality is something I will avoid in future.

I've used this paint on my wooden doors, I love the colour. Did find that I had to stir it a lot to get the paint mixed in well.

I purchased this paint to make over on old pine bed - the results were fantastic - so good I went back and bought another tin to paint the doors of an old pine wardrobe as well - the bedroom furniture looks like new in my 'beach themed bedroom' Very Pleased with how easy it was to do and with the finished result.
Would thoroughly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ambvol worst paint ever used in 50 years
I have 50 years DIY experience of painting my house.
I can honestly say that this is the poorest paint that I have ever used.
The paint goes on very thinly, needs about 4 coats to finish a solid colour.
The tint seperates seperates in the tin very easily and needs stirring every time that it is used.
It does not adhere to previosly painted surfaces although it might do if the surface is very carefully
abraided or primed with a barrier undercoat.
It covers about a quarter of the claimed amount due to recoating.
Part of the problem I suspect is due to the worldwide
change in paint formulation introduced about 2 years ago.
Perhaps other makes of paint do not have these problems.
The internet is full of stories of people trying to source the now replaced oil based paints albeit most of the stories are in America where the paints were changed ahead of the EU.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disapointed Streaky doors and rads
On the website this product now states, not suitable for bathrooms but has no such advice on the tin.
If you require a horrible streaky mess that leaks pigment , then this is the paint for you, otherwise stick to the companys who have more experience in this market, wish I had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jak Odd - in a bad way
I wanted to use this alongside the same colour matt (which is very good!). Firstly, the colour had separated in the tin and needed extensive stirring to remix (bought two separate tins and this was a problem in both!).
It needed 2/3 coats to cover white but, in spite of considerable prep to roughen the surface, the paint has set like plastic/vinyl and any slight knock brings it off like strips of film.
Have never had this problem with any other brand of Satin paint.
