A lovely colour but will need several coats
We tried out quite a few creamy colours from the dulux range and this was our favourite as it was not too yellow, not too pink and had no green hue like the buttermilk did. It is warm on the walls and changes with the light. It goes paler when dry and although it does seem a bit thin when it goes on it dries quite matt and is lighter when dry. About four coats covered the pale grey colour that was on the walls previously. I think it is a bit more watery than the absolute white we used on the ceilings and in places the wallpaper we were painting on to bubbled up a bit. This always settled down again though and I think that as long as you don't overload the paint on the wall as you go it's okay. I think that if painted straight on to plaster this would take even better and possibly require fewer coats as plaster is more absorbant and this has been the case in places on our walls where we have had plaster touch ups. I only wish I could have found it in a larger size can as I have a lot of walls to paint and I would like the price economy of a larger can.
