Tallow

No.203

A light cream

This illuminating neutral takes its name from the natural material originally used to make candles. Tallow’s pale cream finish reflects the light brilliantly so it is perfect if you want to lift a darker space or paint one colour throughout a property. The slightest hint of pink and yellow pigment creates a warm but fresh feel which is often very popular in nurseries. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Pointing

Tallow is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 120.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly right! I hesitated before trying Farrow and Ball because it is more expensive than my usual brand of paint, but am so glad to have tried it - beautiful colour and quality! Now in my hall, living room and kitchen - will not be going back to the cheaper brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle but perfect I brought this estate emulsion ( never use anything other than F&B) to cover what was a white ceiling. It looks really lovely as is quite subtle and alters depth of colour depending upon lighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good coverage This covered well in two coats, and the light reflection is good making the room lighter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! This is a lovely rich cream colour with excellent coverage. I used it in my bedroom to go with Pink Ground. Both of them have golden undertones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, beautiful finish! After buying an inferior quality paint I realised my mistake once I tried F&B Tallow modern eggshell. What a beautiful paint, easy to apply, lovely finish, Tallow colour was a lovely fresh cream. Really pleased with this paint.
