Mouse's Back

No.40

A quiet grey brown

This grey brown classic takes its characterful name from the fawny colour of the British field mouse. Much like its namesake, the green based Mouse’s Back is quiet in nature and feels soft in rooms both large and small. It will read greener when used on the walls of underlit rooms and is the perfect accent on furniture or floors when combined with more traditional shades such as Setting Plaster and Lime White. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Off-White

Mouse's Back is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 85.

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

Our paint colours are 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes. For further information about our products, including guidance on safe use and application, click here to view our advice pages.

WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including acetaldehyde, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour Tried a few tester pots first, (4 in actual fact ) then decided upon Mouses Back as it matched the new sunlounger we had purchased so my job was to paint existing table and 4 chairs ...results were fantastic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mouse’s Back I used Mouse’s Back Modern Emulsion to paint a ceramic tile floor (after cleaning it well). It appears like old clay tiles. It wears well but if it scratches I just touch it up. The walls are Matt Off Black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant painting experience For the first time in more years than I care to admit, the tin of paint from F&B actually covered (really well) the area it said it would. Am now a convert - numerous other brands seem to fall short on this key feature. Great product and fab finished result

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won’t be disappointed Recommend getting a sample pot for a true colour. It can then also be used for touch up’s. Confusing bit is you’ll prob like every sample pot you try. Fast delivery and great communication even in covid times. Top class service all the way enabling you to get on with ordering your lovely paint.
