Our Primers & Undercoats
We recommend using Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat wherever you’re using a Farrow & Ball topcoat. Not only is it specially formulated to bring out the very best in our paint, but keeping to the same brand for your priming and painting products will help to avoid any incompatibility issues.
The Farrow & Ball System
Our paint colours are renowned for their depth, complexity, and ability to respond extraordinarily to light.
For an even, long-lasting finish, we recommend following the Farrow & Ball system:
• One coat of our Primer & Undercoat in the recommended tone
• Two coats of your chosen topcoat
Our Primers & Undercoats are available in up to four tones:
White & Light Tones, Mid Tones, Red & Warm Tones, and Dark Tones.
Each one is made with a careful balance of pigments, and between them they bring out the best in our entire palette of colours, adding richness and depth for that signature Farrow & Ball look.
Because they begin with the same rich pigments and water base as our paints, our Primers & Undercoats help your chosen colour to adhere effortlessly to the surface you’re painting, giving you a smooth, even finish and unrivalled coverage.
