Wickes are changing paint suppliers so this is a one-off sale.

Happy hunting

Make sure you buy enough as Wickes are getting a new paint supplier and you will not be able to get anymore of this soon.

A good question - with lots of potential here for endless argument and personal prejudice or recommendation!

In simple terms, 'trade' paint is intended for professional decorators and should be of superior quality in terms of density, coverage and durability - and usually with a premium price to match. 'Retail' paint is intended for the householder/DIYer and (especially in cheaper 'own brands') is not necessarily of the same quality, often requiring more coats and giving poorer durability - but is usually perfectly OK for interior work.

Many decorators will swear by Dulux Trade, to the exclusion of all others. It is very good paint but it is significantly more expensive than most perfectly good competitors (e.g. Leyland trade). For some reason, Wickes paint (whether trade or not) is considered by many 'professionals' to be rubbish - probably because they cannot believe that any paint half the price of Dulux can be of adequate quality.

IMHO, having used Wickes and many other makes regularly over the years, most Wickes paint is good quality and certainly good value. Stock up while you can at these prices, although I suspect many of the reduced price products will have vanished from the shelves already. I like the Master Exterior gloss (used with the special primer/undercoat) and, for interior work, the trade acrylic primer, trade universal primer and trade undercoat give a sound foundation.

Thanks for the post, might go and have a look tonight.
#10
I need another tin of their "brushed steel" paint - cant see it on the website so im hoping they have some left in store :(
#11
having been a painter for 10 years , I can only say that dulux trade paint is far and away the best quality. Wickes trade isn't bad , and is definitely better than their standard paint .. I would recommend spending the extra money on dulux trade because for most people , painting isn't that much fun , and why make more work of it with inferior materials ?
#12
Will take a look
#13
absolute bargain.
#14
stocked up with some of their 'master' matt emulsion. Got a few rooms to do in the spring/summer.

The only 'trade' stuff I saw was exterior masonry paint by the way.

The Master emulsion is pretty good, although I have never found it worth the extra cost in comparison with the Trade emulsion. You will almost certainly need two coats unless merely over-painting a good surface of the same or slightly lighter colour. If painting on fresh paper or plaster, do thin the first coat by adding at least 10-15% water or you will get too much drag and unwanted texture, especially if using a roller.
#16
Thanks for that info - have some rep. :thumbsup:

Is that one coat paint any good by the way? They had a few tins of that too.

I'm not sure which type of paint you mean. An oil-based (usually gloss) 'one coat' paint can save time in finishing (after priming/undercoat) but will tend to give a poorer finish with more brushmarks etc - you need to work quickly and confidently. If Wickes does any one-coat emulsion (I can't remember), it will merely be a thicker paint that might be OK but, again, may give a poorer finish - remember that any emulsion needs thinning anyway for the initial coat.
#18
Wickes had ome master range one coat emulsion....in the same colours as the washable emulsion that I bought for £4.99.

I'll remember about the thinning....thanks again.
#19
Well, that's just saved me a mint. Two 2.5l of cocoa washable matt emulsion and 3 tins of non drip gloss (including 1 trade), 3 brushes and some white spirit for £17.99.

That's sorted out a bedroom and transformed a freebie office desk into a trendy patio table with a superb finish (grey top and blue legs).

Thanks are most definitely due.
#20
how longs this on for?
#21
Until the earlier of:

1. The new stuff arrives or
2. The old stuff sells out

I'd guess.
#22
Most stores I have been to have sold out now, but they've still got the more useful white emulsion/gloss at full price iirc.
#23
The Wickes website is now showing the 'new' paint range. Obviously, it is too new to comment on quality but I am not impressed with the range or pricing structure. Several of the useful multi-purpose products (such as acrylic primer) are no longer listed and the typical price for anything other than emulsion is around £10 per 0.75 litre - about twice what it should be. (Where the few 2.5 litre sizes are also available, e.g. in white, the extra cost is however small.)

I have often used Wickes paints in the past and been pleased with the quality/value, but am not likely to be buying much there in future when the basics at least are available at keener prices from Screwfix (Leyland) and Toolstation (Flag) and various other sources.
