Book Room Red
Marks when wiped
As a fun of F&B paints, must admit I have been very disappointed with the Book room Red. I have purchased the eggshell paint to add accent colour to the kids room, they are F&B funs too. I have primed and painted bedside table, let it dry for a week, just to be sure. Today I tried wipe the dust of it with slightly wet cloth and it marked! Left smears of the colour of wet paint! Not a look I was after. What is going on F&B?
I have used stiffkey and purbeck stone eggshell before and never had the same issue, I love them. Painted kitchen chairs and radiators and they are now as fabulous as the day I painted them(1 yr ago), and I clean them regularly. I have also used modern emulsion in ammonite, skimming stone and purbeck, as well as India yellow in estate emulsion. Fabulous colours, great quality! I do not mind paying extra for F&B paints but I do have expectation!
Have to say, Book room red is a lovely, warm, pinky terracotta colour, but what's the point, wasted time and money on something I can't really use.

Easy to work with. Rich, sophisticated tone.
Fabulous colour used on timber panelling in a fairly dark bedroom with Lime White on the ceiling. The paint looks almost like a salmon colour in the tin but when used dries to a deeper, richer hue. Great with the dark oak bedroom furniture and polished brassware. Highly recommended!

Nice colour, blotchy finish
Two coats of topcoat over two of recommended undercoat and the result was still disappointing, a blotchy finish that wasn't as good as it should have been, given the price of the product.

This product has great depth of colour.
As ever, a high quality product that has added warmth and quality to our home.

lovely colours and sheen but very difficult to use
As always farrow and ball have great colours but the paint was very difficult to work with. Consistency very thick so hard to avoid drips, left a.lot of patchiness and took ages to paint the area.

Deeper tone in a small room
I was surprised, as this dried darker than I expected. That said, it has a very warm tone to it. This colour was used in a massage room. I love it best when the sun shines on it through a west window.

F&B paint is great as being water-based it does not set off migraines for me like horrid synthetic paints do. It is also lovely to work with and apply. The floor paint so far seems very hard-wearing and has a nice sheen to it. I am pleased with the colour which is very warm without being to intense.
