A soft terracotta

Warmer and brighter than Dead Salmon or Setting Plaster, Ointment Pink creates a soft terracotta glow wherever it’s used. This soft orange-pink is typical of the early 19th century, with similar shades having been found at Calke Abbey and Kedleston Hall, as well as in the grand entrance hall of Castle Coole.

This product is archived and made to order, which means samples aren't available and orders cannot be refunded or returned.

Key features

The finest ingredients

The finest ingredients

We’re dedicated to perfecting the art of paint. At our home in Dorset, we combine the finest ingredients, 75 years of experience and technical precision to help you create beautiful spaces that stay beautiful. Even in our colour rich paints, less than 8% of the tin is the colour. The other 92% is what creates the quality, depth and extraordinary response to light that transforms your home. 
 
Paint is like coffee. The colour is the froth on the top, but it’s the quality of the rest of the cup that makes it taste good. 
– Richard Ball, Farrow & Ball Co-founder 

We use twelve exclusive pigments, all specifically selected for their colour intensity. We take colour seriously, so naturally, we only accept the very best. By using these same pigments to make every colour in our palette, all our shades combine effortlessly, making it easy for you to put together a cohesive colour scheme. 

Deeper, richer colours

Deeper, richer colours

Packed with pigment for an extraordinary response to every kind of light.

We add generous helpings of rich pigment to create our signature look – deep colours with complex undertones. The same space that feels bright and airy in morning sun, can feel cosy and intimate by evening. Our teams design each shade under every kind of light, so it will be perfectly balanced in every setting.

Extraordinary response to light

Extraordinary response to light

We spend months carefully crafting and testing each of our paint colours to make sure they share our signature extraordinary response to light. This beautiful reaction to changing light, like bringing out different undertones or shifting intensity, is what makes our paint so special.

Interior and exterior finishes

Interior and exterior finishes

From walls, floors and furniture to radiators, skirtings and sheds, our range of paint finishes can help you transform almost any surface in your home (and outside it, too).

We even have multi-surface finishes like Dead Flat and Full Gloss, so you can tackle walls, woodwork and metal at the same time. 

Our comprehensive range is comprised of paint finishes that not only look beautiful, but offer different practical benefits. Designed for a variety of different surfaces, each finish is compatible with our high-performance Primers & Undercoats to ensure exceptional coverage, adhesion and depth of colour.

Red & Warm Tones

Our Red & Warm Tones Primer & Undercoat is the perfect first step towards truly cosy colour schemes. Based on the shade Porphyry Pink, it makes topcoats look even richer, so you can enjoy the fullest expression of your chosen hue.

Made with the same natural ingredients and pigments as our topcoats, our Primer & Undercoat is the crucial foundation for creating a rich, even and longer lasting finish.
