I bought some of this last year and painted my kitchen white with it, within a few weeks it had gone yellow so had to re-do all again with better paint. Not worth the money! You get what you pay for!

ive always used this magnolia never had a problem with it x

I cant say I tried the magnolia, but I wouldn't buy the white again due to the yellowing, magnolia is probably fine its good to hear you had better results than I did! x

Cheap rubish .

If I was going to be painting a room in my house, I would definitiely not be using £3.99 paint from Home Bargains.

what white silk paint do you recommend please

Depends on where you use. Certainly not for your living room.

Is it branded with a known brand? - It took me twice as long to paint my flat because I used cheaper paint - this may well be decent quality, I haven't used it before - but...... days of extra painting Vs a good branded known paint ( even 3x the price ) I know which I would choose

its for my ceiling plz thanks x

Never waste your money on cheap paint. I recently bought a can of 151 varnish for £1.29 - it's £1.29 because it's rubbish and I've never smelled any varnish with such an objectionable odour.

My mate is a decorator. One of the most important things I've picked up from him is not to use cheap paint if you want any kind of quality finish without endless coats.

Wicked vinyl silk is very good. Around 30 quid for 10 litres.

Make your mind up.

I've never known people on HUKD to be so against something cheap before! Ha ha!! It's very true though paint is something you can't go cheap on as it only ends up costing you more having to repaint.

just like water - cheap for a reason u b better going to wilkinson get their brand...

I've used this (magnolia) about 18 months ago in my sons bedroom & it is still fine, although its called "One Coat" it required 2.
I think it's OK but I wouldn't use it where there's heavy moisture i.e.. bathroom or kitchen better spending a bit more there. I speak from experience I made the mistake of painting a bathroom with cheap emulsion (not this one) & it's a nightmare when the paint starts flaking off & you have to strip it all back.

best white paint is Crown one coat! Ask any professional decorator and they will tell you the same. Yes its expensive, but if applied correctly (preparation is everything when it comes to painting) it will last you for years and never discolour.

terrible paint its like kids paint
