Pelt 4.4 5 19 19
Covers better than expected Rich, warm colour ,has a very natural overtone of brown, wonderful. October 6, 2014
Pleased with result I loved using this paint from undercoat to top coat (two coats of each as our front door was pretty old) and the result is great. Do be warned that the colour can be quite purple - possibly less so for some positions on different surfaces - but for our front door in bright sunshine it was a bit startling at first. Looks good with the polished brass though! August 6, 2014
The usual ease and depth of coverage associated with the brand. Ordering on the website was easy and fast. Delivery of sample pots was quick. Although there was damage upon delivery, there was no quibbling with a repeat order and a perfect delivery this time. Wonderful coverage and depth of colour to the paint made my choice the perfect one for my decorating project. July 31, 2014
Pelt std emulsion. Very hard to use and get a good finish. IE, colour different ion and poor finish when having to touch up, despite 2 coats. Marks really easily. Expected much, much better from a premium brand :-(( July 23, 2014
Very poor This product does bit dry properly and remains "tacky" to the touch even after sufficient drying time. The finished surface is not very durable at all and cannot be wiped with a damp cloth due to pigment transferring onto the cloth. I would not recommend this type of paint on any surface that is even in a domestic environment. January 6, 2014
Gorgeous colour! Pelt is a beautiful color; a truly stunning deep purple. The paint quality is very easy to work with, smooth, thick, good coverage. I painted my front door in this color. The house is a Tudor style with grayish brown stone and brick. Pelt was absolutely perfect with it. August 31, 2013
Great product easy to use and drys quickly. We used Pelt in estate eggshell on some bathroom cabinets with black granite work surfaces and black and white wall and floor tiles. The final result was a superb contemporary design with the Pelt giving us the feature colour. Would recommend this colour. July 17, 2013
Classy Colour I've always used Farrow and Ball paint for my front door. Colours are classy and the paint itself is easy to use and lasts well. It's probably been about three years since I last did this. Used Pelt on my front door this time and it has completely transformed the front of the house. Tones beautifully with the purple planting scheme in the front garden and has made my hallway feel warm and welcoming, rather than an odd space in which to access the rest of the house. Team it with silver coloured accessories and it really looks the business. Well worth three days of stripping and scraping old paint. It's also worth using the recommended base coat as this gives a great finish. June 17, 2013

Darker and less red than Brinjal, the perception of this colour will vary greatly depending on what other colours are used with it. Dark Tones Undercoat.
