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 4.7 out of 5 by 58.

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.


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paint Love Farrow and Ball paint. I upcycle old furniture and the eggshell finish is lovely. Also use emulsion on walls. Just trying the new black (which goes on purple but dries a gorgeous colour)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I painted my daughters small, dark, east facing room this color, and it is beautiful. The paint went on smoothly and only one coat was needed. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very unusual colour We bought calamine emulsion about a month ago and were dubious that we might have chosen wrongly: not so, we were absolutely thrilled with the result. It is a very subtle colour and the estate emulsion finish is excellent. The colour compliments our soft furnishings without being obtrusive. As always applying the emulsion was very easy and Is virtually odour free. Although it may be more expensive than other brands it is well worth the extra

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use. Has to be the easiest eggshell to apply, so smooth and drys quickly for recoating. Looks great and it’s tough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour depth. A customer chose this colour and I ordered it online for delivery, which was a very smooth transaction by the way. This paint goes on so smoothly and covers very well due in part to the depth of pigmentations in the colour. A little more expensive than some other 2.5 ltr emulsions but well worth paying for the easy coverage and excellent finish.
