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 155.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the colour This is one of several F&B samples I bought for my refurbished bathroom. My bathroom has no windows and unfortunately this was not suitable because of the lack of natural light. However, 4 samples later I finally found that Wevet was perfect for what I needed. I only use F&B paint now because of the quality and finished look. It makes all your work worthwhile and cost effective in the end. Photos to follow later!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shower room refresh We needed to freshen up our downstairs shower room before a family celebration. I had the idea of pink but didn’t know which one to go for. I ordered a couple of sample pots and decided on Calamine, and glad I did. We paired it with a Pointing ceiling, and they go together well. The Calamine gives a fresh yet warm and inviting feel to a dark north facing room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the perfect PINK We deliberated over Nancys Blushes, Middleton Pink, Sulking Room, Rangwali and Calamine. We didn't swatch any samples as I thought £25 was too much for me when the paint was £53 for 2.5l. Plus samples only come in Estate finish and I always go for Modern. I like the slight sheen this gives off. This was for my daughters bedroom she's 12. Its just perfect. Not too blancmange and not too candy pink either. I wanted it pink but not too girly for her heading into teenage-hood, in order to decorate so soon after in case she grows out of it. It's a gorgeous calming dusky pink for me. And as F&B colours do, it changes colour with the light which is the absolute beauty and delight of this paint. We did it ourselves and managed with a 2.5 litre tin (two coats) one wall being all wardrobes floor to ceiling. You wont be disappointed it makes me so happy to see. I dont do PINK lol.
