Down Pipe

No.26

A dramatic lead grey

Down Pipe, a dark lead grey, has definite blue undertones to it which deepen the complexity of the finish. Originally inspired by the colour used to paint downpipes and guttering, it has been embraced for use inside the home with fanatical zeal! This daringly dark hue is fabulous as a background to art, and extremely effective for use in halls to create a deeply dramatic entrance to the home. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Dimpse

Down Pipe is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 335.

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 Lovely paint Goes on so smoothly. I don’t think I will be able to use any other paint from now on. Painted some somewhat grubby cream kitchen units. Looks like a brand new kitchen. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Striking colour Used Down Pipe as a feature wall in our lounge and love it! Slightly worried about choosing such a bold colour as we usually stick to neutrals but, complemented with dimpse on the other walls, we have had so many complements. The paint covered a cream colour in two coats but we did notice that it blistered in places so had to be careful not to over roller it. Only ever use Farrow and Ball paints now and only have one room left with a different paint brand on. Love the chalky finish of the estate emulsion so will be changing this soon too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Masonry paint in one of my favourite colours Ordered online and arrived in 3 days. I watered down the first coat as brand new render and then only needed one full coat. The depth of colour is fantastic and looks very smart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Finish I always use Farrow & Ball, the quality shows with a superb finish after just 2 applications. Very easy to apply & covers fantastically compared to other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage Bought this to paint the large up & over garage door. Really pleased with the colour. Excellent quality paint with very good coverage. It's a little expensive compared with other brands - but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finish The product bought was from the Modern Eggshell range. I applied two coats of this after one coat of Dark Colours undercoat and was extremely happy with the result. The colour was exactly what we required and provided a lovely soft sheen finish.
