Mole's Breath

No.276

A moody grey

A timeless grey whose name takes its roots from the much loved Elephant's Breath, this moody hue is inspired by a smaller, furrier animal. Mole's Breath is the most versatile of our stronger accents as it can be used both with Easy Neutrals like Purbeck Stone and Contemporary Neutrals like Strong White. It is particularly effective to ground kitchen islands and when used on the walls of smaller spaces to create a fabulously sullen yet warm room. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Ammonite

Mole's Breath is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 124.

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 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 Superb quality product An excellent quality paint which was easy to apply and gave an excellent result. The colour and the "Modern Eggshell" finish are just right. I will definitely use Farrow and Ball paints for my future decorating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’m converted I always colour matched the shades to save money, this time I tried the real thing and I really wasn’t disappointed.. the quality of the paint is amazing. It’s a thick consistency and rich colour so coverage is incredible and the finish is so matte. Also I love with the colour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen refurb We sent for a Mole’s Breath tester. The colour and texture was exactly what we wanted. We purchased 3 x Small tins of Estate Eggshell and one small tin of Dark Tones undercoat/primer locally. Very pleased with the results. Gave kitchen cupboards 3 coats back and front. Brushes easy to clean in water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour! I bought this to paint some DIY panelling and am so happy I did! I bought the estate eggshell to use on a painted wall but also on the MDF battens - used two different F&B primers for each of these surfaces (painted interior wall primer and hard wood primer) then the estate eggshell paint over both. Colour is absolutely flawless across both surfaces and looks amazing! The depth of the colour is fab. It is such a deep, rich grey with nice warm tones - no cool tones so is really nice and cosy in our bedroom. Only needed two coats with using the dark tones primer underneath. Highly recommend.
