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 4.8 out of 5 by 33.

Product Information 
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 132 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 Stunning Colour After going through many sample pots I finally settled on Drop Cloth and I’m so glad I did. It was an epic task painting my hallway with a vaulted ceiling because it did take 3 coats and I was only covering magnolia!! After the first coat it looked like sludge but after the second I could see what I stunning colour it is. Well worth the effort and I’m going to paint our snug the same colour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour. We used this paint for kitchen cupboards. We used New White on the walls and the two colours look great together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed using it I don't usually much like decorating the exterior woodwork on my home. But this paint is so easy to use. It spreads exceptionally well; it doesn't drip; cleaning up afterwards is a doddle. It's dry and ready to recoat without sanding down between coats in about four hours. A bit pricey - yes, but more than worth every penny spent. and the final result is brilliant!
