Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was sceptical but it really made a difference! I have always undercoated in white to create an even colour colour and texture to paint over. I thought I’d give this a try so I new what it was about and I will always use it from now on. It goes on a matt, light olive green and makes a really good base for the top coat to stick to. It really did help the paint go on and stick properly. Great product, will always use from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even the primer looks good Made a very nice base, colour might be a tad dark, after 2 top coats I was uncertain that the grey was coming through and would have felt better with a 3rd top coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great base coat in prep for a wonderful top coat! Currently decorating a very long hallway with Strong white, Charleston Grey and Elephants breath. Coming together nicely

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!
