Description

Based on the zinc white colour found on a window salvaged from Cambridge, this used to be our whitest white, before Project White was introduced in 2019. Original window obtained from the Charles Brooking Collection. This is the colour used on the Russian Cottage on the Chatsworth Estate.

Don't forget to order your Raw Linseed Oil and Balsam Turpentine if you need to thin the first coat.

Coverage is approximately 15-20m2 per litre per coat (160-220 sq.ft. per 33.8 fl.oz. per coat).  This equates to about £6.53 per square metre (US $0.79 * per sq.ft.) for the finished job done in three coats (one coat diluted and two further coats undiluted).

The finished job for Farrow and Ball Exterior Eggshell (plus primer) is approximately £8.92 per m2 and Dulux Weathershield Quick Dry Exterior Satin (plus primer and undercoat) £11.13 per m2.

(* Exchange rate $1.30 to £1.00, December 2020.)

    Fantastic product, really impressed. Only issue was the colour of the paint is nothing like the colour on the website or the printed colour chart! Still looks great though and can see that it will provide years of protection for my windows.

    Why cant you buy this in every DIY shop? It leaves a great finish and really lets your wood breathe, plus it smells great when you are painting. Painting with gloss paint is akin to wrapping potatoes in cling film ... why wood frames have been rotting for the last half century just creating a boon for plastic windows. This paint is the saviour for wooden windows.

    The ordering process of the paint was excellent. It arrived in very good time and well packaged. However I've been unable to complete my project whilst awaiting a query I sent via the web site. I found the paint to be extremely thick even after a thorough stirring. I have followed instructions to prepare the initial priming coat and that has applied well. But I'm just unsure if the thickness of the paint is normal so wanted confirmation. After the preparation of my wood planing, sanding tack cloth dust removal I'm reluctant to move on until getting a reply to my query. Being deaf I'm unable to use the phone so left with frustratingly slow emails. I'm going to have to get someone to ring for me. So sorry but I've only given four stars.

    I decided to buy this paint for my interior windows having already painted the exterior windows with Green Grey linseed paint. It is a bright white and looks lovely, very on par with modern day white colours. I added some corsik drying agent to it, which worked well in making it dry within a day. The only thing I felt was different was how thick the paint felt in comparison to the other colour and that its finish was more glossy. I ended up thinning it slightly with some pure turpentine to avoid brush marks. I don’t know if this was because of the drying agent or just because there was more white pigment in the mix. Either way my windows look beautiful now! I will be purchasing more to paint all my other interior windows.

    Goes on very smoothly and dries quite quickly as long as you paint on thin layers
