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 91.

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.

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 A lovely vintage rose colour Lovely to paint with and doesn't show the brush strokes. The colour is a creamy pink, so not too sickly or bright. Gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour Bought this for our bathroom, it's not cheap but it's a very grown-up pink that I couldn't find in other brands colour ranges. Definitely needs two coats, even after undercoat, but we're very happy with the final result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour Bought a 2.5L paint can and it was just the right amount for our daughters small bedroom. Great coverage, needed about 2 coats + touch ups. The colour is lovely, a soft pink with enough grey in it that it isnt too 'sugary'. Looks beautiful with white gloss and grey carpets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicate and fresh color I always love F & B paint and calamine is no exception. I've used it in my kitchen to add some depth and freshness to our white walls. Every time I walk into the kitchen and see the colour, it makes me smile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful paint My first time using F&B masonry paint, and I’m so impressed. Beautiful coverage and such a pretty soft pink. I wish it came in a smaller tin, because my wall isn’t very big, but that’s my only (minor) gripe. Would definitely buy again, and recommend to a friend.
