most paints require 2 coats (at least) unless stated,you might get very lucky going over a very light colour with a darker colour,but normally 2 coats is minimum.

Painted my shower room with a strong coloured blue/green Homebase paint …Painted my shower room with a strong coloured blue/green Homebase paint recently. It took 5 coats to cover white and it shows every splash from the shower. At £10 a tin for 2.5l it seemed a bargain but truly a waste of time and money.



Wow, 5 coats! I'm surprised you had the patience for it!

I would've gone out and bought a different brand after the second coat.

This is so much better than Johnson's, on a par with Dulux in terms of Quality in my opinion but as said above, coverage isn't as great

Different price spectrum, but honestly once you go trade paint you will never go back...
Now if only they hadnt closed all the homebase here

To be honest I have never used a paint that doesn't require two coats.

Well I covered it with Crown paint and that certainly only needed one coat - similar colour too. The Homebase one was very patchy too.

They told me in Homebase that this paint is made by Johnson’s and we’re reducing them as they were changing their range.

Couldn't agree more with your comment. This stuff use to be amazing when Argos and homebase had same owners. Since then utter junk took 4 coats in a bedroom and wasn't even a half decent first coat.

It’s actually made by Johnson’s at the moment
If you are after a one coat paint I recommend the dulux pick your colour paints. Pricier but very impressed with consistency and coverage.

Nice job
Husband is a painter and decorator and says never to buy this stuff, ends up costing you more as you need that many coats to try and make it half decent. Not worth it
For my missus who is obsessed with paint. Grabbed a few half price deals. So heat from me. Thank you.
homebase near me has like halfed in size. i know there in bother but some of the prices they still have its clear there going down the tubes. maybe theres deals to be had if its worth your time to go to b&q, etc to compare but might not be worth it. maybe try small indepent stores.
I have pebble beach paint in my lounge and main bedroom. Not the silk one though.
Worked

Fine for me. Painted 17x17ft room and a 17x13ft room about 6yrs back. Still looking good. About 3yrs ago i opened one of the old pots to touch up areas the kids scribbled on and you couldn't see any patchiness at all.
Heat added thanks op

Depends how fussy you are I suppose

Dulux trade diamond matt, but it's expensive
I'm allowed to paint my house from January, might stock up on these before I start. Heat added 🏻
4 coats of "Stone" to cover the light grey that was on previously......
Nice! Thanks
