Drop Cloth

No.283

A gentle mid grey beige

Neither too yellow, nor too grey, Drop Cloth is the traditional name for the indispensable painter's dust sheet which this muted colour embodies. A nod to our painters and decorators, this mid grey beige is the perfect contrast to our slightly lighter Shaded White and Shadow White, creating a trio of colours that sit effortlessly together in modern and traditional homes, both large and small. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Shadow White

Drop Cloth is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 70.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour Have painted with many Farrow and Ball colours but when it came to a precious dresser contacted F&B about the primer needed and having used a sample pit knew Drop cloth was for me. They wrote a long and helpful reply and can’t fault their advice or the products. Can’t beat the quality or subtlety of colours

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour We wanted a slightly greeny room without it being too green!! And this grey/green is perfect. Paired with shadow white on the ceiling and Wimbourne White on the woodwork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour Drop Cloth on the door and upper cupboards, combined with Shadow White and Down Pipe. Really enjoy F&B paints, , however they do change with position and light so definitely worth trying a sample first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent finish I purchased Drop Cloth to repaint my bedroom as I wanted to give it a classical feel. I used Drop Cloth to paint the walls which I had panelled. The finish is fantastic and gives me an Italian stone vibe and my room feels very classy. The paint changes with the light and can range from a cool greener tone through to a more warm sandstone which gives the colour extra depth.
