like wise my nearest Asda is about twenty five miles away, shame because they always have some really good bargains, still cheap at £11 though!

If you have a B&Q nearby they have some deals at the moment. Dulux Pure Brilliant White Matt Emulsion 7.5L £17. Not quite as good aa ASDA deal but handy if no Asda nearby.

or even 10L for £19 of DULUX at B&Q as bought some yesterday

Any Magnolia deals ..........

Just seen 10 ltr tubs at costco for 15+ vat. Not bad price though.

Great deal

Good price

professional decorators - is this any good or would I be better off using skimmed milk? I know opinion is often divided, if not entirely contradictory on here...

Not bad. Works out at roughly £2 odd a litre.

HOME BASE is selling Crown Brilliant White 5L for £10!

Dulux is utter crap.

Buy some Leyland or Johnstones paint for the same price and you'll get much better coverage with paint that resists scuff marks etc.

@paintersmate... can't find those manufacturers anywhere at that sort of price and considering you've been a member for 20 minutes and this is your only post, I'm wondering if you're trolling?

If not, please feel free to post a link?

Told you what ? ... that Dulux is crap, or buy Leyland or Johnstones for same price ?

Dulux is not utter crap depsite some of the claims here. It's ok but there are better products available - its top quality, consumer grade paint - not trade. Just about the best paint on the market is Glidden (http://www.glidden.com/index.do), but is not cheap (£30 5l) - its what most pro's use because time is expensive relative to paint. Johnstones is ok but Leyland is cheap crap.

However the point is for £10 this is good value, if your a DIY''er at the weekend you cannot go wrong at this price.

Told me that Leyland and Johnstones was the best paint to use

I don't know about layland emulsion, but I used layland undercoat and primer from toolstation and it was as good as the top brands.
Excellent coverage and smooth finish.
I don't know what people expect from emulsion, I have used all brands and I find dulux one of the better ones, and surely very good value for money when bought on offer.
I personally don't like crown as I find it too thin.
Johnstone is also good but more expensive and I never found it on offer.
I suppose that the final result it's all down to the decorator and the tools used.
A poundland roller sleeve will not give a good finish, no matter what.
Also cutting in with a cheap brush will leave marks.
Advice for the DIYers: invest in professional brush and roller sleeve for about a tenner (harris is what I use) and you will have a much better finish.
Clean them afterwards and reuse to offset the cost rather than buy poundland tools all the time.
My opinion that I'm sure many will not agree with.

I bought some last week and painted a ceiling with a 10" roller yesterday. Its excellent and didnt have one drop from the roller and one coat was enough.

I can't argue with that, I have used Johnstones on one occasion (as its much more expensive) but was the best paint I've used.

Disagree with the 'dulux is crap' though, I find its perfectly acceptable for a novice DIYer.




I'm sure I heard somewhere that Glidden was Dulux paint for the US market!

dulux.ca/en/…tml. That comes up for dulux in Canada, so I think you may be right.

Glidden is made by ICI, part of the same AkzoNobel group that owns Dulux.
All this 'Dulux is crap' nonsense makes me laugh. Ive been a decorator for a good few years and in my experiance Dulux TRADE paint is the best on the market, not saying it is cheap, cos it isn't, but its all relative.Crown trade aint bad either. The non trade Dulux paint is ok, but no more. I would say Leyland, Glidden and Johnstones is about the same. Its like most things, you get what you pay for. The Dulux trade paints can be thinned and still perform very very well.....;)
