Calamine

No.230

Delicate pink with a touch of grey

Calamine is indeed named after the lotion we all used as children to soothe nettle stings and rashes! A light touch of grey prevents this subtle pink from being too sugary, giving a much fresher finish. In smaller rooms it becomes intense, but in larger well lit rooms it feels much more delicate. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Great White

Calamine is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 108.

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 Great finish Love this paint - it goes on really well - good coverage after two coats and has a great finish. It’s actually quite a strong dusky pink - I chose this instead of sulking room pink, to get a similar effect to some of the examples I’d seen - because sulking looked quite brown in this room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Mid house refurb and have been agonising over colours for master bedroom. Having looked at Sulking Room Pink and Cinder Rose (both not quite what I wanted) I decided to go with Calamine. At first I thought it might be too light but it is perfect after two coats. Changeable in the light depending on the time of day and once the room is finished will look amazing. Couldn’t be happier wit the choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colour Bought this as wasn’t sure about the colour, but it is exactly what I was looking for. I have since been to buy the larger pot. Goes on very easily and washes out of brushes very quickly and easily..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely muted pink Lovely pink that's not too girly. Used on my front door, I put on 3 coats for durability but could have probably got away with 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant paint Bought this to paint my garage and front door. It is fantastic and we only used half of a 2.5l tub. We used 2-3 coats of each. Amazing coverage and really easy to use. We covered a bright red door with a pale pink no problem!
