Setting Plaster


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 95.

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.


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 Beautiful colour! We used Setting Plaster in our bedroom. We painted the walls, ceiling and trim and it's gorgeous! Couldn't be more pleased! It's a warm and rich colour, perfect for a northeast facing room. Thank you Farrow & Ball!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour! Took a bit of a personal risk with this colour (Setting Plaaster) for our living room which is quite small and has limited daylight. But absolutely love it, so much cosier than the previous pale cream. Such wonderful paint to use, just rolls on and covers so well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous colour Absolutely delighted with this colour. This bedroom is tiny and has a small window. Setting Plaster has made the room feel warm rather than cold. Paint quality is excellent too. May well use it in the main bedroom too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour I’m really pleased with the quality and ease of application of this paint. The fact there is no awful odour with it is a real bonus. The colour was perfect for a feature wall in my living room and compliments soft furnishings I already owned. I’d previously struggled to find a blush pink that wasn’t too pink. This has a great warmth too. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Colour Easily Applied Had a cottage wall re-plastered and loved the colour of the set plaster. Couldn't believe I'd find a matching colour so easily by name – "Setting Plaster"! It's perfect and so easy to apply. Love it!
