I used the white matt to attempt to cover a magnolia room, and 6 coats later I gave up and purchased some dulux trade supermatt, which did the job that the wilko stuff was supposed to do.
You won't see queues of painters and decorators at the wilko checkouts with tubs of this in their trolleys....

This stuff's like milk, so I'd gloss over the issue if I were you.

Avoid this when driving it home please chaps

Stick to proper trade paints & save the hassle or time. The clue is what tradesmen would use. It won't be this crap I tell you. Can't believe Wilko would sell this crap, not fit for purpose.

Good find .. That's the Valentine's Day prezzie for the missus sorted.

Don't waste your money and time with this. It's probably their own standard emulsion.

Great price op, heat added

some of wilko's paints are reduced to clear at £3.00 and Dulux gloss was at £2 ...this was in the Burnley store earlier on today. hope if helps somebody.

Only use this as a base coat on freshly plastered walls.
Let the plaster soak up the cheap stuff.
Then put a decent brand on to get a better finish.

Beat me to it. This stuff is only ever intended as a base coat / mist coat. I used to work in a decorating centre that sold trade paint, so I should know ! Usually the clue is with it containing the word "contract". No vinyl in it, shouldn't use it as a top coat!
