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 4.6 out of 5 by 41.

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 Such a beautiful colour! I adore this colour and the paint is lovely to work with. We used the appropriate primer and it made a world of difference not just on colour depth but in how much paint we used - barely any!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have to see it to believe it I have recommended Setting Plaster for clients before, but I've never used it in my own house until now. It is simply not what you'd expect! While most people would say Setting Plaster is pink, in my master bathroom it is the most neutral, disappearing, FLATTERING color I can imagine. It's a color to fall in love with.

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 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.
