Rated 2 out of 5 by Stoat Needed two coats
I applied this, well stirred and in an ambient temperature of about 18C, to my brand new, factory-primed HDF skirting boards to a thickness at which the paint was just starting to run vertically (i.e. the maximum possible). Once dried, the effect was akin to what an artist might describe as a "watercolour wash". It was nowhere near one-coat performance, and was cured by the application of a second coat, making its performance the same as any other internal satin, which was disappointing. I know this isn't a problem with other homebase one-coats, as I've used a few, and all the others have been fine. I can only assume that in the case of this paint, perhaps just this batch (B08052), that the ratio of solvent to pigment was incorrect for one-coat application.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sid bad colour match
I found that whilst the paint was excellent and could be applied very easily the colour match was poor and the colour was very pink which was not pebble like at all

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tomo A spontaneous buy which turned out to suit the purpose for which it was bought admirably. I liked the texture, colour, ease of use and covering ability.
I would normally buy gloss paint for interior doors but this colour and matt/silk finish look really nice when dry.
