Green Smoke

No. 47  

Green Smoke 4.6 5 14 14
Color and Finish Color changes depending on the surface on which it is painted as well as the actual finish selected. October 21, 2014
Beautiful colour Green Smoke is a lovely colour and I have used it to paint my outside doors for a number of years using the gloss finish. Last year it was painted by a decorator who used the egg shell finish and within a few weeks it had begun to peel and chip, particularly at the base of the door. I would therefore only recommend the gloss for exterior woodwork. September 4, 2014
Green Smoke F&B have simply survived by presenting an upmarket presence & yet they flatter to deceive. . Quite frankly, the paint has zero relation to the colour advertised. I painted my shed in Green Smoke & left 1 side as it was with Ronseal Woodland, it is exactly the same, you cannot tell the difference & Ronseal 60 percent cheaper. Further, I returned 2 large tins of French Grey because it bears no resemblance to the advertised colour. I'm surprised F &B is still in existence . Unbelievable. It's almost incredible that this has not been brought to the attention of the directors. I'm taking my tins back agin for a refund. July 2, 2014
Excellent front door colour I used gloss this time as the exterior emulsion last time understandably did not stand up very well to the climatic extremes experienced here 1200ft up in the Pennines. It fits very well into the landscape and the natural stone of my house. Very easy to apply -I am usually not a neat painter but no splashes at all. July 1, 2014
Great advice and service The quality of the product goes without saying, it looks fantastic and is easy to apply. The advice I was given in the Blackheath store was fantastic, it made the whole process a joy. June 23, 2014
Fantastic Product The colour has great depth and the finish is excellent. It has covered both wood and metal exterior surfaces, some of the surfaces were quite old and had an existing bright green gloss finish and the Farrow and Ball Green Smoke Exterior Eggshell covered beautifully. June 18, 2014
Green Smoke An interesting greyish green. In some lights it has a blue tinge, but in full daylight definitely green! June 6, 2014
Colour and Quality One of the most useful colours in the range, suitable for town and country, which has been much admired and copied! August 25, 2013
