Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good base on new wood I used this on new wooden doors and the estate eggshell went over the undercoat like a dream, very easy to apply paint over it. I also used 1 coat of the undercoat over black chalk paint as an experiment and finished with 2 coats of estate eggshell in savage ground. It all covered beautifully with no hint that black was underneath. Would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try it! You'll never look back Undercoat isn't very exciting is it? Do we REALLY need it? I've used F&B emulsion paint on walls in different houses for years, and love it, but haven't given a great deal of thought to the woodwork beyond painting in another well known readily available high-street brand. But a door painted in it last year looks awful so, having bought F&B estate emulsion for the walls for my latest project, the hall, stairs and landing, I thought I'd give their eggshell paint and recommended undercoat a try for the woodwork & doors. What a difference! No runs, no streaks or drips. I've been recommending to anyone who will listen! There's absolutely no comparison and I will never use anything else, despite the cost. (I will be re-painting the door described above very soon too)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primer for dark tones I purchased this to upcycle an old bureaux. Paint goes a long way and goes on really smoothly. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Primer ! Superb primer with great self levelling properties and once dry makes the smoothest of painting surfaces ! bought to use on 13 Edwardian doors stripped back.. didnt trust the Delux equivalent as I feel it doesn't adhere to the surface of the wood properly and will peel in time...The builders eyes popped out when he saw the final finish with F+B Modern Eggshell 'All White' ! and he does work for English Heritage....
