Product Information

This Buckingham green gloss wood & metal paint has been specially designed to give a durable and long-lasting finish on wood & metal. Simply apply with a brush and leave for 2-4 hours to dry - a great way to give the surfaces additional protection. Covers up to 25 m² per litre on average.

Features and Benefits

At B&Q we want you to be satisfied with your colour selection. Not all monitors will display colours the same and paint tins may not show the same colour as your walls do in natural light. We therefore recommend you order a tester pot online or pop in store to pick one up so you are sure that this is the right colour for you.

  • Control air pollutants by choosing products with lower solvent levels

How to prepare a wall for painting

How to prepare a wall for painting

While it can be tempting to get painting as soon as possible when you want to decorate a room, it’s worth taking the time to make sure your room and surfaces are best prepared before you begin. Getting the preparation right is crucial to achieving the perfect finish. It’ll also help to keep things neater and cleaner, and reduce the need for additional coats of paint. No paint can completely cover dirty or uneven surfaces, so tackling this at the start of the project avoids the need for extra work later on.

In this guide we’ll walk you through the most important steps to take, and show you how to;

  • Empty your room ready for decorating, and protect fixtures and fittings you aren't painting
  • Clean your walls to help paint adhere
  • Fill holes and cracks and smooth your walls for the best possible finish
  • Prime stained surfaces or those which have not been painted before

Once you've completed these tasks you should have a smooth, even surface ready to be painted.

Primer buying guide

If you're painting on bare wood, plaster or metal surfaces, you'll get a better result if you use a primer first. It provides a surface which the paint can bond to and stops the paint being absorbed. Find out more what you need and for what surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint and nice colour Great colour to this paint just wish they had more stock at my local branch

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can spit thicker Bought this as a traditional colour for my shed doors and windows. Amazing how utterly useless it was. I used a PROPER trade undercoat but this rubbish was like oil floating on water with no coverage. Rubbed it off after the first panel and have binned it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Colours Buckigham Green Exterior Paint I brought this because I have had this green before but a few years ago when it was oil based it was a cracking paint then, after reading the label on the tin... I wanted solvent based paint which it said it was. well its not its, absolutely tack, no coverage power, no shine, leaves brush mark streaks. A total waste of my time, this should be withdrawn or relabelled as water based, totally misleading, its not that cheap either for 2.5L. Avoid you would be better going for the deluxe weather shield... far superior paint

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Colours Buckigham Green Exterior Paint Absolute rubbish. Coverage is exceptionally poor. I gave up. It would take at least 3 coats to cover the undercoat. Give your kids some felt tip pens, they would make a better job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish I agree with the other people used primer and a good undercoat and still got brush marks had to buy different paint gone on great

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gloss finish I bought this product in conjunction with weather shield primer and under coat, a couple of days ago. Having prepared front and back doors carefully and applied 2 coats of undercoat, I had a perfect surface for gloss. Using a new brush I have applied 2 coats of exterior gloss Buckingham green and the result is appalling! The finish is NOT gloss and brush strokes leave patterns in the surface making the colour shades look different from each angle. Even flat horizontal surfaces do not appear to be gloss finishes and no amount of extra coats will make this product acceptable. This product should be removed from the shelves and NOT sold as gloss paint.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shocking product If you painted a glass window with egg you would have a similar finish to this product. On the front of the tin it says Exterior Gloss in large letters, if you are in a hurry, you won't notice that it's a water- based paint. It simply does not cover. The grey undercoat was clearly visible underneath after the recommended 2 coats. It is £5 cheaper than Dulex Weathershield but only covers 7.5m2 (Dulex is 13.5m2). In my professional opinion, this is a faulty product that probably was introduced as a cheaper alternative when the new VOC law came in but it does not work. Golden rule of glossing - if it takes 16+ hours to dry, it's a suitable oil based paint. Check the tin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dismal The earlier, oil based, version of this paint was not brilliant and always needed 2 coats. This latest version is simply dreadful. It has almost no covering power and even with a good quality brush spreads extremely badly. I used a water based Dulux primer/undercoat and this applied beautifully so it isn't simply the choice of solvent. Never again!.
