Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good base coat I used this on my new shed to provide a base and key for the top coat (F&B Mouse's Back exterior eggshell). This is a good base paint; it spreads easily, covers well and dries quickly. Dries quite dark, and looks almost green. The only negative is that it is quite a strong colour and does tend to bleed through top coat paintwork, such as Mouse's Back, necessitating two top coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Undercoat wins! I bought this for my front door. Put two coats on front door which looked great and then Manor House Gray topcoat. I actually preferred the look of the Dark Tones undercoat to the Manor House Gray so put another Dark Tones undercoat on top, and it is fab. Probably broke all rules but I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wall Healing Paint I call this my magical wall-healing paint, whenever I've used it the wall becomes flat, calm, reliable and, just ready for painting with emulsion. Bumps, lumps and lines seem to fade away, leaving a beautiful expanse of flat, even and receptive wall, worries fade away when you've applied this and you know the works is almost done!
