Normally £22.50 a tin, only in pure brilliant white and only the 2.5l tins, but still a great deal! In-store only, worth a visit if you are planning any painting jobs!

plenty in stock as well

This is a great price but I've used Crown water based gloss/satin in the past and it's awful stuff, like painting with cream cheese and finish full of brush marks. Just used Zinsser perma-white from screwfix and this is really good, much better than any other water based paint that I've used - much more expensive too though, but for me it's easily worth the cost and don't think I'll be using anything else in future

Getting too used to seeing 5 litre white dulux emulsion for £10 to consider this a deal. Saw dulux white 2.5 emulsion the other day at £8.50 and wasn't impressed with that price, and i am looking to buy more white emulsion too at the moment. probably find a 5 litre at £10 soon.
Haven't voted.
I tend to stay away from crown paint, prefer dulux and johnstons.

This isn't emulsion, it's water based wood/metal paint

If your going for a Waterbased satin avoid this stuff, go for Bedec satin or gloss. Knocks spots of the big retail paint companies, does cost more, just over £30.00 for 2.5l @ toolstation but the difference is amazing, oh and get yourself a good synthetic brush.

thanks

This is water based trim paint and it has poor abrasion resistance. It’s satin which lacks the gloss finish most people want on their skirtings and door frames.

The real problem for many people is finding a white oil based gloss paint that doesn’t yellow.

I would guess this is marked down because it is a poor quality product.

Avoid, this retail gear is pretty rubbish, very soft etc, Johnstones TRADE aqua satin 2.5l amazon £25 free delivery, try the local johnstone decor centres they will pricematch own products, also very important is use a decent synthetic brush, not a poundland set.. give the surface a clean down and a sandpaper. this is even more important with water based products.

They wont go pure yellowy cream though! (johnstones aqua CAN go a very slight yellowing in time due to the little oils in it to make it tougher) you would probably hardly notice its a great product l use on a regular basis ! painter and decorator 20yr plus

Hi. Just painted a room in pure brilliant white and wanted to paint my malm bed frame and wardrobe. In this case I have few questions :

1. What's the difference between satin and satinwood?

2. Can I use either satin or satin wood to paint ikea malm frame and pax wardrobe frame?

3. Can I get away with using left over ceiling / wall emulsion to paint malm and pax frame?

4. Is SDM eggshell coating basically a primer and if yes, can egg shell be painted over ?

Cheers, will keep an eye on the Zinsser, I'm a big fan of their cover-stain after moving in to a house which the precious tenants smoked in. Currently just finished a tin of Dulux trade satinwood which i'm also impressed with. Will see how prices compare, though what i found is Dulux trade is worth the extra cost including the emulsions - pay more but gets the job done and is so much more durable, certainly more cost effective in the long run
