A brown-grey tone, originally used on the steel frames of the Yorkshire Bank building in Leeds.

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.)

    Came back for more

    Published by Maureen Horswell on 21st Jun 2022

    We used this paint last year to paint our dormer windows. Then we were happy, so much so we have come back for more, in order that we can paint our new wooden shutters to match. This pain is easy to use and we are even more pleased in that we can treat would the way it should be. The only downside is that living in France we can no longer afford to pay for shipping since Brexit and now have to tie purchases in with visits to family.

    Treating the timber rather than just covering it is so satisfying. How did we ever persuade ourselves that drying a crisp shell of paint on the surface of wood makes sense? The product is lovely to apply, and leaves a durable and elegant finish
