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.

I brought this paint to white wash walls before painting another colour . It's so thin and watery and where it was on my hands dried like chalk . Awful product .BUYER BEWARE .

I bought this paint for my painter & decorator to paint my newly plastered dining room ceiling. He applied a miss coat before applying further coats, as soon as he started applying the main coat the plaster peeled away with the roller. He told me he had never seen this happen before & thought it was the paint. Following his recommendation I then bought a branded paint, this was applied without any problems. Being sceptical I wondered if it was the plaster mix that was causing the problem so decided to use the b&q emulsion on my bedroom ceiling that was plastered 30 years ago, only to experience the same problem & end up with plaster breaking away with the roller. To test it further I gave the paint to my niece to try on her ceiling, she also experienced the same problem. Will never buy b&q paint again I will stick with known brand names.
Unfit for purpose

Do not buy this paint and I would advise you to not buy any bnq brand paint if this is anything to go by. It wasn't the cheapest in the store and wasn't even a whole lot cheaper than the dulux so I thought must be half decent, how bad can paint be? The answer is, very very bad. A newly plastered ceiling which I had already put a mist coat and 2 further coats and it looked really good( used a different brand paint for these coats), but I ran out of paint and thought I'll give it one more coat to really make sure. The ceiling now looks terrible. You can see every movement of the roller I did on the final coat and I will have to redo it with dulux. Wasted hours of my time on this shambolic product. Do not buy it!
You get what you pay for.

I purchased this to water down and seal new plaster. This was £6 per tin. I have bought Crown 10 litre x 2 at £26 which works out the same price for the final coat!
I used an undiluted amount for a second coat and it seemed to make it worse, however as it dried the colour improved.
Let it dry

Goes on thin & looks rubbish but dries to a better finish :)
