Wickes Vinyl Emulsion Matt / Silk 10 Litres Reduced to £15 from £22.29

Found 14th Jan 2012
Wickes own brand Brilliant White Vinyl Emulsion paint, 10 Litres in Matt or Silk. Reduction label says Obsolete and reduced to £15 from £22.29.

This is the paint that replaced the excellent "Master Paint" range about 18 months ago and is equaly as good in my opinion, hope what they replace it with covers as well.

I bought a couple of tubs, and there seems a fair few on the shelves at my local branch in Shrewsbury.

Other paints should be on offer after being made obsolete aswell as the master tools. The price may be at managers choice. I'll check tomorrow when I get to work.
I have been using Wickes paint for many years. I particularly liked the 'Light Stone' vinyl matt they used to do. However, they changed their supplier about 18 months ago, and the new paint is absolutely useless. 'Emulsion flash' problems with both tubs of paint I recently bought. What a bloody mess my walls are in.
I found the replacement "Master" whilte to be ok, it covers well, not sure of the colours, but Wickes are changing suppliers pretty quicky for some reason and it could be complaints such as yours banerama.

What is "Flash", is it to do with the emulsion seperating in the tub with age?
Should of used a web browser shouldn't I, lol, OK I found this;

Uneven gloss or colour resulting from an unsealed substrate or excessively high or low temperatures during drying.

So that's an Issue you would have with Colours and Silk, Not so much with Matt White I presume and thus why I havn't noticed "Flash" effect.

Thanks for your alert Banerama, I was thinking about buying some colours for rooms inside the house while the offers were on, you may of saved me some greif, and I find very few things as anoying than decorating as it is.
