Mole's Breath

No. 276  

Mole's Breath 4.6 5 21 21
Mole's Breath Estate Emulsion - Dynamic. First time decorating. Master Victorian bedroom. Went with F&B and results turned out better than expected. This is an incredible, dynamic colour. All the hard work paid off and I've had professional decorators review my work and given it the thumbs up. Ensure you use the dark tones primer. It's a must imho. The other thing I should add are that these paints are joy to work with. Works well with Cornforth White. November 24, 2014
great colour but not exactly what I was looking for purchased a sample and although I very much liked the colour, eventually went with stiffkey blue November 17, 2014
Not the gloss A long term fan of F and B paints. The estate emulsion is great.. fantastic coverage.. easy to use and great colours. The water based gloss is however absolutely awful to use. Coverage is terrible and its just not glossy...just a bit shiny. Very disappointed. Their previous oil based gloss was fantastic but this new stuff is substandard...even on the correct undercoat two coats were needed and I am still not happy with the finish. It wasn't broke you shouldn't have fixed it. October 23, 2014
Amazing colour I used this colour on a French style bed and it looks fabulous. As an amateur painter, I never use anything other that F&B as it is so easy to apply - and the results are always great. June 23, 2014
Stunning This is a gorgeous deep rich shade, really lovely. In the end we decided it was too brown for the effect we were after as we wanted a purer grey, but we will definitely use this colour elsewhere as it is very striking. Manor House Grey was the colour we chose in the end as it had less of the brown undertone. June 6, 2014
Beautiful warm and practical grey I used this to paint my wooden floor in a north facing bedroom, alongside ammonite and Wimborne white walls. Although the final shade was lighter than that on the colourchart, I was very pleased with the results - a lovely warm grey that doesn't limit the light in the room, yet is practical enough in terms of keeping clean. Complements the other colours very well and easy to use. My floor required 3 layers of topcoat, however well worth it in terms of the final result. May 18, 2014
Amazing colour Amazing colour. Bridges the gap between dark grey and a hint of brown. I always manage to find just the right colour with your paints and they look fantastic. May 15, 2014
Amazing What a stunning modern colour with a Georgian heritage, absolutely love it May 2, 2014

The name Moles Breath speaks for itself – linking in with the fantastically popular Elephant's Breath but reflecting the beautiful colour of a mole’s coat. Dark Tones Undercoat.
