Setting Plaster

No.231

A dusty plaster pink

This dusty pink is named after the blushing walls we often admire in newly plastered houses. It is definitely a pink in historic terms, but has a certain softness to it due to the inclusion of yellow pigment. Our timeless Setting Plaster creates a wonderful backdrop to antique furniture, and also works incredibly well when paired with Mahogany in a more contemporary home. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Tallow

Setting Plaster is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32.

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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised by joyous Setting Plaster Having just ripped a wall of cork tiles from my tiny outhouse studio walls (don't ask), I needed something neutral, soothing and inspiring to paint the remaining plaster board wall (yes, I could have plastered it and made it pretty but I like seeing screws and joins and nails......call me weird). Many mind changes later, on a whim, and largely because it's an F&B colour I'd never used, I settled on setting plaster. Quite unexpectedly, it's a joy.......it's just there enough without being shouty and I've barely left the studio since I painted it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour! Had been looking for a plaster coloured paint to go with the Gable wallpaper and Setting Plaster was the perfect match! Beautiful warm colour. Great quality paint, thoroughly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good matchh Some years back I decorated the kitchen. Needed a colour to match the tiles. You didn't have one, so I mixed some others of yours to get what I wanted. Succeeded! Tried the setting plaster and it's the same. It suits the kitchen ad is a good match for the tiles. Well done, and thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Colour We used Estate Emulsion in setting plaster on the hall, stairs and landing of our Tudor Farmhouse. It went on like a dream and covered newly plastered walls beautifully. definitely needs two coats to get the depth of colour but well worth the effort. The colour is like a soft peach which gives a warmth without it looking 'fake'. It is a real joy to use this paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serene Warm and uplifting colour, constantly changing. I think it's slightly pinker than in the photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pink Nude Was looking for a colour to offset some green velvet furniture that was strong enough to make the room feel warmer but not take away from the feature chairs. Found it! :-)
