Metal Primer & Undercoat
This primer is full bodied and gives really good coverage. We used it over black paint. One coat and two topcoats of hardwicke white gave really good coverage. One thing to be careful of is the instruction to apply thickly and not brush out to much which can lead to a slightly uneven finish. We used this on a steel faced composite door and it really looks great just like wood.

Great Coverage over Old Metal RSJ
As you would expect from Farrow & Ball, this is a high quality undercoat paint which is lovely to use and covered an old black RSJ brilliantly.

Superb quality primer for use on garden furniture
This is a high quality metal primer that I have used whilst preparing a set of metal garden furniture and a metal obelisk. It is easy to apply and provides a superb base for F&B's Exterior Eggshell. It is far superior to other metal primers available on the market.

Excellent product if a little expensive compared with its competition.

Painting cast iron gutters
F&B Metal Primer & Undercoat was very easy to use, was recoatable within 4 hours and enabled me to apply the required two coats in a day. It gave a good thick coating and hopefully should provide protection for many years to come.
I have found it frustrating that none of my local Brewers and Homebases' had this commonly used basic product in stock. My gutter painting project has required one website order #+Â£4.95 postage# and two journey's from Winchester to Wimborne.

Much better than I expected having moved from oil based paint to water base

So easy to use.
This metal paint just flowed on and dries very quickly. No messy brushes to clean as it washes off the brush beautifully. The final result is magnificent. Thank you.
