Lovely natural colour and beautiful finish
I have just painted the new plaster walls in our conservatory with this paint and am very pleased with the final result. The colour blends well with natural terracotta tiles and brickwork and doesn't look either too orange or too pink - it's just right. I applied three coats with a brush over two coats of the primer undercoat, which seemed like a lot of work but I didn't have large walls to deal with and the result justified the effort.

Excellent quality from opening the tin, easy to apply and great finish.
I found the paint to be of great quality and matched the tester exactly. I t was easy to apply and after two coats, dried to a great finish. It matches the F&B emulsion used on our walls perfectly. Will use F&B paint again.
Would suggets you might consider a larger tin say 1 Litre size for estate eggshell, the 75ml size was just not enough to complete the project in the lounge so had to buy another tin, for such a small area that remained to complete was a bit expensive and now have two thirds of a tin left over.

I used setting plaster for my very old dark cottage. It's now warm, inviting and cosy. I teamed it with shaded white on the ceiling and paintwork and a driftwood oak floor. Everyone loved the colour. Fab f and b as usual.

Does what it says on the tin!
After much deliberation over a suitable colour to lift the very neutral living room in our new home we chose this. It is perfect and truly is the colour of setting plaster, the overall effect is not pink (which is what I was concerned about) but a beautifully subtle shade blending perfectly with terracotta, browns and neutral shades. In true F and B fashion it covered perfectly with two coats, I'm thrilled with the result.

Farrow and Ball paint review
Farrow and Ball colours are beautiful and timeless no other paint comes near the quality and the rich depth of colour in this paint .i have always used it and always will.chalk paint trends will come and go ,Quality always lasts.Setting plaster is a fab colour it's got that pastel powder look to it .

I find it a pleasure to use F&B paint- always a good finsih-interesting shades of light-as a paint lover of ancient frescos,this is exquisite-
however-in my house that is exactly where it should stay!
I chose this for a good size double bedroom-unfortunately it is the only experience I have had with F&B that has not worked.. it looks like a poached salmon-complete with the greys..and has smallened the room to make it now look like an old greek goathouse rather than a warm bedroom in a bright place-hence we chose the duller tone-
I am sad- this would, however, be perfect in a small ladies study-bathroom-hallway- and as a previus review with candles- even a cosy lounge- but bedroom no-absolute disaster- and I shall seek again..sad..
