Interior Wood Primer & Undercoat

Easy to use A friend recommended using this before applying Estate Eggshell, I was keen to go straight for the colour but she was right. Very easy to apply, dries quickly and gave a good solid base to apply the colour on top of. September 1, 2014
So easy I have very recently begun 'up-cycling' old and cheap items of furniture bought off ebay to replace my MDF stuff without spending a fortune. I find this primer so easy to use and it gives a fabulous finish. I have never had such sucess with painting and I put it all down to the quality of the paint and using the right undercoat. It makes the whole project so easy I can't wait to find something else to paint! August 27, 2014
Can make the shabbiest piece of wood look chic! Fabulous stuff. Do a lot of painting and have tried on the leading brands and more but nothing compares to F & B. May 28, 2014
Interior Wood Primer & Undercoat - Lovely to use This is the first time I have used a primer as I wanted to have a professional finish this time rather than the slap dash approach I usually take. I used two coats and it was very easy to use, odour free and washed off the brush with water. I used this under Elephants Breath, Arsenic and Lime White and I found it to be a great base to use my colours on. May 17, 2014
Good coverage I was really impressed with this undercoat, no stinky eye watering smell, and the coverage was fantastic - I have finished the job and still have over 1/2 a tin left, very impressive. April 25, 2014
Great results I started to paint some fitted wardrobes using another undercoat but decided it wasn't giving the results I wanted so ordered farrow and ball undercoat to use under their eggshell paint. I should have bought this undercoat from the start as the finish result is so much better. It went on like a dream and only needed 2 coats and 2 coats off the eggshell finish and the end result is excellent. I wasted my money trying to save a few pounds on the cheaper product so will be buying farrow and ball from the off in future. April 1, 2014
good finish Using this undercoat made sure the finish was exactly what I wanted on my hall furniture. I'm still not convinced that water based paints are the way to go, but this was good quality, dried evenly and overall did a good job. March 14, 2014
A great product When you are unsure of what the previous paint was it's best to use this primer to get the best results from your top coat. I was completely satisfied with the finished job and I am sure using the recommended primer was a big part. March 6, 2014
