Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good preparation and foundation My husband has renovated the door of our stone cottage and needed to be sure to prepare the old surface well. Following the site’s advice and recommendation, we decided on Mid Tones Exterior Wood Primer and Undercoat and we are glad we did. It gave a really good foundation to the surface of the door, ready to be painted in F&B Mizzle Eggshell. The Primer Undercoat went on well and easily and sure enough, has made our front door look perfect! Good preparation always pays off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage and ease of use. Quickly created a good surface with the primer and knotting paint. Resulting coverage with the Parma Gray was excellent.

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!
