A lighter lead

This strong architectural grey is named after the lead often used by fishermen to weight their lines. Plummett intensifies in colour in smaller spaces and has a strikingly modern feel which is conducive to minimal living. Used as much on woodwork to define dramatic spaces as it is on walls, Plummett is one of our most hard-edged and industrial feeling greys. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Ammonite

Plummett is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 118.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint ever! After a bit of research and speaking with someone who paints furniture I decided to give F&B a go. I wanted to paint our wooden fireplace surround to bring it a bit more up to date so wanted a really good finsh. Oh my word what a fabulous product, just a joy to work with and I can't recommend enough! I ordered a test pot first so that I didnt make a costly mistake and fortunately it was the right colour. Used tile stickers to completely change the look. Very pleased with the end result - just got to finish the rest of the room now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service I recently bought a test pot online and had some issues with payment. I contacted F&B via their website. I was called back swiftly and spoke with a very polite, helpful lady who sorted out my issue straight away. Great customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super job Bought a can to freshen the look of the front of my house and was not disappointed. It was a bit pricey but its worth paying the extra for great quality. Painted garage, front door and side panel inside and out plus back door inside and outside and only used half of the 2.5l. Looks amazing and neighbours have commented how nice it is .
