Very nice paint to use and looks great on the ceiling, slight crazing on some filler which needed another coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Louiseborough Lovely quality, great colour and low odour. Great that it's so eco-friendly too! I used it to paint a bookcase that had been primed and undercoated. Two coats of "Pointing Eggshell" went on really easily and give a great matt finish with super depth of colour. Delighted with the result.

I was a little put off at first because of the price. However I was revamping some old wardrobes which were melamine coated in mahogany. I prepped the wardrobes and primed them first obviously but I don't think any other paint would of worked as good as this! The finish on my wardrobes is outstanding. You would not think I had repainted them. Everyone has commented on how professional they look. I used a paint brush and a gloss roller, there are no brush marks. As its water based any mistakes can be wiped easily. The paint doesn't drip or run. It dries evenly and to a soft low sheen. I also used this paint to repainted some old wooden drawers, a small table, a dressing table stool and radiator cover. I also went on to use it on the window sill, skirting boards and the door. I will never use any other paint now on wood work. It's worth the price.

This paint is so easy to use - covers well and dries quickly - no nasty smell.
The colour is exact to the chart - I used on a wood panelled wall which now looks beautiful.

Farrow and ball is great paint to use. It goes on extremely easy. The only downside to their emulsion is that it marks very easily if you brush up against it. You can't wipe it either as the paint comes off on the cloth. Not recommended for busy areas in the house

Bought this to touch up paintwork in house as the previous owners had used this paint. Tried to matchup the colour but did not realise until I had painted a fair bit that it was not a match! Product is fine - just hard to match colours

These paints may seem expensive when compared to others, but I think they actually work out cheaper in the event.
The secret is in the quantity and quality of the pigment they contain. I had used various strong shades of tester pots all over a patch of white wall, all of them two coats deep and applied thickly with a brush. When I applied a single coat of this paint with a roller, it completely masked all of them perfectly. I honestly could not see any darker or lighter patches coming through at all, which amazed me.
The patch of the same shade (which effectively now had 3 coats in total) showed no visible difference either. Based on that, I really could have applied just a single coat with a roller in the entire room and achieved the same end result. However, my wife insisted on 2 coats, which was a waste of money in my view. One coat does it!
Also, when cutting in the corners and ceiling/skirting edges with a brush, the finish blends-in perfectly.
Warning, guide your colour choice according to the booklet, not the example on the side of the tester pots. The booklet colour indication is 100% accurate. Also, painting 1m square patches on a white wall made all the shades look really dark, but once the room was covered, it looked far less drastic.
Also, the shades are highly changeable in differing lighting conditions (natural and artificial) so take time to observe them between day and night settings.
Outstanding paint, flawless finish, easy and quick to use, worth every penny. No hesitation recommending this and I will be covering the rest of the house with it.
