Just what I wanted Tried tester pots of other brands. None compared to the depth of colour and true orange that I wanted. This is perfect. Just used on fire breast - other walls in corn forth white - a lovely warm grey May 8, 2014
Rich intense colour, but not harsh The paint goes a long way. The colour is very rich and saturated, other oranges we tried had a harsh brightness to them which this doesn't have, even though this is a true orange and not a rusty or terracotta colour. February 17, 2014
orange is difficult.. wrong shade and it doesn't work. This is rich, towards burnt orange. Amazing when put against shaded white walls great against shaded white. Wanted a dramatic colour. Was daring and used egg shell. September 2, 2013
A stunning paint and colour There is a warmth and depth to this paint that is not fully apparent until you see it in-situ and that is accentuated by using the recommended undercoat. Works really well against 2005 (All White). A dream to apply. May 14, 2013
Great depth of colour Beautiful finished colour but easily marked afterwards i.e. when hanging pictures. Had to touch up various marks which then did not meld into the original finish. Don't be put off by the initial coat which tends to look like a fluorescent orange! The overall colour when finished has great depth and is stunning. May 1, 2013
I would recommend this because of the colour not ease of use love the colour used the undercoat but it is so runny its like painting with water the tin has been shaken and stired but made no difference this is the first time this has happened I have used lots of other colours and they have all gone up really well but its worth the extra effort as it looks so good January 6, 2013
Would use modern emulsion for this next time I am a big fan of estate emulsion for the gorgeous chalky finish, but after years of using it this time I think it would have been better to use modern emulsion. The colour after 4 coats on top of primer look just about ok , but touch it and it leaver shiny patches behind. This hasn't ever happened to me with other lighter colours from f and b.

the depth of color is much more than was anticipated . I am glad I decided to spend the extra money to try the product. The depth of color is more than I expected. Note, use a primer, lol thank you for helping introduce me to a new product. August 30, 2012

Highly dramatic and extremely fasionable especially when combined with Railings. Widely used as an accent in the minimalist decoration of the 1950s. Due to the high level of pigmentation in this colour, we strongly recommend using a Farrow & Ball primer & undercoat in Red & Warm Tones to achieve optimum coverage and depth of colour.
