Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best undercoat! Used this paint in the past and adheres well to bare wood and used it again this time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good! I bought this because id decided to splash out on the F&B hague blue so thought to not cut corners on primer. Im so glad I did...its a joy to paint with! Id even go as afr to say i prefer it on the front door to the hague blue, a lovely heritige thick eggshell colour, I was almost sad to paint over it! Its this undercoat colour thats made the decision about using the greys inside now - i want to paint everything in F&B - do it, you wont regret it. AND - im a graphic designer, so massively fussy about colour and i LOVE it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality undercoat Bought Farrow and ball for our exterior wooden windows of our cottage. Covered really well and was a joy to use. Used mid tone as a base, which was a really lovely colour in it's own right and has left windows looking beautiful and smooth ready for our chosen Farrow and ball exterior colour. Worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sticky undercoat Water based paints often don't stick well. This paint sticks and makes a very good ground for the top coat. The paint is easy to use and brushes out well.
