Can I just say that I know this price sounds high but I for one love their paint. Thanks for sharing.
Looks like KFC crispy batter oozing out of a can and on to the walls.
Great colours, but get a Dulux or crown paint mixed to match it. That is what pro painter and decorators do!

This, just get the colour code, take it to a crown paint centre and they will mix it for you costs about a third and much better paint to work with.

You get the colour match, I've done it myself, but not as good a quality finish imo.

Not used it myself, but i understand the ease of use of alternatives means most people get better results with them, rather than f&b, which is meant to be difficult to get to as good a finish.

But as I said, this is just what I've heard! I quite like Wickes own brand myself.
You would have to be off your nut to pay £32 quid for 2.5L of paint, Let alone £46.50, And the paint is not even that great.
F&B - fab marketing to the lay person, nothing more. Nothing better about their paint than others. If anything, I find it watery and requires more coats which is poor considering the price. Paint is a ratio of solid matter (the expensive, trade secret bit) to water/oil, the latter drying off over time. Less matter = more coats, cheaper paint. For example, look at coverage coats and consistency between dilux trade paint and consumer paint - the latter is more watery and has less coverage per m2.

Don’t be suckered into their marketing gumpf - look at what professionals use. Dulux Trade centres, Johnson’s trade centres and Brewers. They’ll tell you what paints to use and it won’t be F&B.

Store own brands are usually mixed by the other big companies too using older paint recipes. Dulux do this with their cheaper Armstead brand.

Basically, buy Leyland Trade Matt for your base coat (incl new plaster mist coat) then choose any colour from any brand that’s near what you want at a good price. You won’t be disappointed.

You can thank me later
I pick F&B colours then go to Johnstones trade centre to mix. Costs £17 per 2.5l and the quality is great with no splatter from the roller.
