Arsenic

No.214

A lively mint green

Arsenic has a lively, stimulating feel despite its name being derived from the poison that was rumoured to have been in the wallpaper that poisoned Napoleon after his capture. Its vivid mint colour makes it feel just as at home on contemporary kitchen cabinets, especially when paired with Down Pipe, as it does on the walls of a 19th century dining room. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: All White

Arsenic is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 87.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Deadly I just finished remodeling my downstairs powder room and chose this absolutely beautiful color. It is refreshing, bright, and happy. I can't bring myself to hang my artwork and cover up the beautiful color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Colour (750ml tin) I bought this to upcycle an old dressing table I’d purchased for £20, and the result is far better than I expected. The colour is absolutely beautiful, and looks darker/more vibrant depending on the time of day and the light in the room. The paint itself went on well, and I used just two coats (before and after pics as shown). I used the same tin to paint a further three units for my room, and there is still some left over, so great value for money. I found that purple accessories really compliment the mint colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality as ever Bought to revive patio furniture and as always with Farrow & Ball it did not disappoint. Colour is vibrant and when the sun catches it you can appreciate the different hues it gives off. We have used F&B indoors for a number of years as the coverage and feel of emulsion /paint on the brush is 2nd to none. Would definitely recommend.
