Great colour once you get there.
Good points are the fact there are no drips or splashes, and the colour is true to the chart.
I was painting on Orchid White, so decided to give it two undercoats of the recommended colour to make sure.
Put first top coat on with a brush and was disappointed , so roller with next coat. Eventually after four top coats walls were perfect and colour brilliant. It was hard going for nine days painting, but must say results ar egreat. Would use paint again as colours are fantastic, but will have to wait until my arms stop aching.

Modern emulsion great for a bathroom
Our very small bathroom is painted in Brinjal modern emulsion and looks very smart and grown up. This is a great colour: strong, bold, and very striking for a small room. The modern emulsion has a slight shine to it which makes it perfect for a bathroom - despite the steam and condensation, it has lasted well and hasn't gone streaky. Highly recommended. And yes, it definitely darkens as it dries, as other reviewers have said.

Don't judge before dry
I was a little concerned over the texture of this paint as it looked a little grainy in the tin. After the first coat on my cast iron radiator I really had concerns over what the finished colour would be as it certainly looked very brown. After the second coat it still looked like it was a different colour to the sample but after 4 hours had dried to a finish consistent with my trial pot. Overall I am very pleased with the result.

Love the colour. First time we've used F&B. As we needed something washable (chimney breast) after reviewing the F&B literature we elected for the 'Modern' Emulsion. Little disappointed that's it's not as matt as we had hoped for but pleased overall.

A lovely rich colour.
We used this product on our chimney breast as a feature wall. The painter used a few coats as after the first coat it looked red! When dry, is a lovely, deep, rich aubergine; just what I was after. Actually doesn't look as deep in the photo I have attached. Very pleased with the effect.

Brinjal - Depth of colour fantastic!
Brinjal estate emulsion is really cool! I've used it for a feature wall, and although it took 3 coats, the depth of colour is fantastic. A real deep aubergine colour with a modern Matt finish. Be patient, don't worry that it looks pinkish and patchy at first, it soon turn into the true colour after a few coats.It is the exact colour of my sofa and compliments the chalky pale olive walls in the rest of the room. I purchased 5 small pots because the 2.5 litre tin was far too much for one wall. I love Farrow & Ball paint, once you use it you will not purchase other paints. I was introduced to it by a friend who had painted her wooden kitchen units - what a triumph! Since my daughter has done the same.

never before have I ever had to do 2 coats of gloss- due to this it appears excessively glossly
I have used farrow and Ball paints for the last 12 years on our location house and have been very pleased with the results especially all the emulsions and the old eggshells.
The modern water based paint that I have used is thin and very streaky in use. please tell we why it has gone this way?

The paint arrived quite quickly. I am still making the models so haven't had the chance to try it as yet, but have no reason to doubt that the product will live up to expectations. Purchased because recommended by the Penryn Society.
