Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh wow, this stuff rocks. Jaw droppingly good and no nasties I wish this was a colour. We loved the dead matt so much it was emotional having to paint over it. Lol. Seriously though, we did two coats as it looked so excellent. Smooth, matt and without the ghastly stink of many other paints. Coverage was very good. We had heard rumours of f n b paints not going as far as expected, but less is more. Time and care to build the finish created a very professional sharp finish to our contemporary build for us novice painters. A real joy. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used on a freshly plastered wall Recommended by my local F&B showroom as we have a recently finished extension with freshly plastered walls, the assistant recommended we use a primer, otherwise the plaster would absorb the emulsion and distort the colour. We diluted by 20%, as recommended for a primer, and it worked really well. The subsequent coats of emulsion went on perfectly. Very happy with final result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent undercoat and an essential primer for Black The Dark Tones undercoat is an essential primer for colours such as Off-Black. It helped to turn my previously Clunch wall to a brilliant black in the bathroom or my previous grey (Mole's Breath blended with Elephant's Breath) to a gorgeously dark wall at the end of my hallway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Racing start We were at first not going to bother as we used 'contract white' to flat the new plasterwork and old bright yellow/orange (also an F&B paint applied some 21 years ago - can't recall the name) colour of the dining room. However, we went for the ha'porth of tar and we're glad we did. Like all F&B paint easy to work with and gave a great surface especially on the super smooth new plasterwork. So easy to then apply our final F&B colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark undercoat Never used undercoat for walls before but this product is fantastic and makes the surface look really smooth prior to the application of a top coat. Will definitely be using F&B undercoat from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Achieved the perfect result! Very pleased. An important accompaniment to the F&B Estate Emulsion range to achieve the depth of colour with two top coats. Have already ordered more for the next job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent when painting over existing washable finish Recently completed a refurbishment of our Annex. F&B Estate Emulsion was fine direct onto most of the walls but one section had been previously painted with some very shiny finish, even after a run down the emulsion was just crazing over. This undercoat was the perfect solution, took well to the old surface and the subsequent emulsion coat went on perfectly.
