Mouse's Back

No.40

A quiet grey brown

This grey brown classic takes its characterful name from the fawny colour of the British field mouse. Much like its namesake, the green based Mouse’s Back is quiet in nature and feels soft in rooms both large and small. It will read greener when used on the walls of underlit rooms and is the perfect accent on furniture or floors when combined with more traditional shades such as Setting Plaster and Lime White. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Off-White

Mouse's Back is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 72.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Quality Product Lockdown project was to refurbish and repaint a summerhouse. The original colour was Mouses Back which we like and wanted to keep. I had to source this paint from the manufacturer as it was not locally available in store. I already had Mid Tones as a primer/ undercoat so the paint went on really well. Almost odourfree and covers well. As it is water based cleaning brushes is easy. Very pleased with the finished summerhouse and the paint will last for at least six years!
