Lichen

No.19

A mid aged green

This calm and muted green is named after the ever changing, subtle colour of creeping algae which ages stone so beautifully. It has a quiet and subtle feel to it, due to its underlying blue tone, and is perfect for use in the garden where it feels totally at one with nature. It works wonderfully as a darker accent to Vert de Terre too. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Lime White

Lichen is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 63.

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 Superb Extremely happy with the whole farrow and ball experience! From online service, shipping and delivery through to the actual painting and final look. We used lichen on dark tones primer to design a headboard in a bedroom with mid-century furniture! Beautiful and my daughter is delighted. Can only recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour takes longer than 4 hrs for final dry but smooth to apply and excellent finish Colour: perfect. Love applying this (eggshell on F&B primed pine kitchen units): so smooth it is almost meditative! Got none brush line, smooth flat finish with small foam roller. Easy to clean equipment: just cold water (no warm available); no chemicals. Tin says 4 hrs to dry....You may be able to do next coat within 4 hrs but it still had low tack. Able to de-nib/light sand next day for next coat on again next day (so 48 hours later). Had units fitted 24 hrs after final coat and still very slight tack so removed some clothes flint from them! For complete hard final dry I would suggest allowing longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time we’ve used F&B but not the last ! We have been using Dulux paints for years not realising there is another level in quality to go to. Colour range excellent, application easy and quality of finish exceptional !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour As always the quality of F&B paint is far superior to anything else. Although not the cheapest on the market it’s a false economy to buy anything else as nothing else covers as well or has the same multi tone colours in different light. This is a beautiful calm relaxing green. I used it in our kitchen. Totally love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful national trust grey green I bought this paint for one end of our kitchen diner. I was looking to draw the room in a little and make it more cosy feeling at mealtimes. It’s stunning! I have to admit I was worried when I applied the first coat as initial coverage was patchy but two more coats and it looks beautiful. No end of compliments so a very happy customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint Not only is it easy to apply and easy to clean brushes, the colour is brilliant and off-sets the “house white” beautifully. Would never use any other paints.
