Blackened

No.2011

A cool white

Our coolest white, with the slightest hint of grey, was historically made with the addition of lamp black pigment gathered from the smoke of burning oil lamps. Blackened sits perfectly with each of our Architectural Neutrals for a minimal look or stronger industrial feel. It’s particularly spectacular when used in Full Gloss within stainless steel kitchens, or when paired with All White for an uncompromisingly modern finish. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones 

Complementary white: All White

Blackened is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 57.

Product Information 
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 132 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.


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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blackened, All White & Ammonite for a serene attic room I painted a 'rustic' Victorian wood floor All White Modern Eggshell in November. I was concerned that it might wear quickly and unfavourably. The ceiling and walls were painted in Blackened - a beautiful, and darker than expected, grey/white. It gives a very soft hue in various lights. The apex wall was painted in Ammonite. I used the appropriate primers under all surfaces and as usual, the paint was beautiful to use, and easy to apply, quick drying and easy to clean utensils. I was worried that grey might be a little cold, but these tones are really very soft and restful. Very happy with the combined effect. When I was attaching fixings there was some damage to the paintwork, but this easily remedied by touching up the paint and was invisible afterwards. Well worth the extra money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour As a long standing user of Farrow and Ball paints, the depth of colour was no surprise. It looks different in different light and angles. Really lovely. We had some trouble with crackling though - not sure why, just painted over it. Not too much of a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the product has great depth of colour and what makes it more interesting is when the same colour in different degrees of gloss ,looks different. The product is easy to apply but brushes need to thoroughly cleaned

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didnt produce the effect desired This was chosen as a compliment to Drawing Room Blue. The pairing was a recommended suggestion from F&B. However, the resulting blueish tint had the overall effect of cooling the room resulting in its rejection. I have no doubt that the pairing would be perfect in a different situation, just not in this particular one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour We have a lime rendered cottage so needed to use lime wash inside. Having chosen the colour and learning/practising usong lime qash the end result is good. You have to take time to learn how to apply lumeqash as it is very different drom normal paint and be prepared to build up the layers. My bedroom took 5 coats to get to the shade both my husband and I both liked. The end result is worth it though!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor results Extremely disappointed with this paint, once dried the paint has cracked and started flaking. Not what I expect from paint which is so expensive.
