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 85.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality paint! As long as this paint is applied correctly onto a well prepared wall then it will look amazing with only 2 top coats required. It seems expensive, however there is no credible alternative. Colour wise you can get similar elsewhere, however it’s the finish that impresses me every time. Used F&B already in my kitchen, 3 bedrooms, upstairs bathroom and mezzanine.
