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 27.

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! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I used this in our second bedroom , we have used Old White, String, Lime White, Joa's White , Matchstick and Setting Plaster in our house and this is my favourite. So much so I am using the leftover paint in my bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oxford Stone This is a review for The colour Oxford Stone: Just gorgeous - goes on smoothly with little drippage. Coverage was superb and very pigmented hue. Of course , it looks very different depending on the light available , but I was going for a natural , almost plaster look . The finish is Matt - so looks timeless and classy. Very pleased with the result!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Setting Plaster This colour looks very classy yet brings a certain warmth to our morning room. Use light tones undercoat and you will need a couple of coats of the emulsion to achieve best results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The colour of setting (or set) plaster. Whilst this was without doubt a high quality paint with excellent coverage, it was a shade or so lighter than the one I was after which was the colour of real dried plaster, which is the only reason for the 4 star overall rating as opposed to 5 stars. Otherwise it's very high quality paint. I did try the darker "dead salmon" which was a better shade match but not quite the right tone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st time with F&B and impressed This was my first time using F&B paint and I am would certainly consider them again. It smells better, applies better, dries quicker and has a surprisingly better finish than the usual brands I have used before. I like the colour. It is intriguing, in that it changes tone with conditions; sometimes it is really quite pink, sometimes more muted and neutral, other times it can develop hues of apricot. This fits well with me. Definitely try the tester, as it looks nothing like the picture on the website. £67 per can is a huge amount, the jury is still out as to whether its three times better than competitors.
