Stone Blue

No. 86  

Stone Blue 4.4 5 32 32
Lovely colour but difficult to apply I painted our 1920s front door in this and the colour is lovely. Our house is red brick and it goes well with the walls. I've still yet to add door furniture but I think brass will go best with it. Unfortunately I found it very thin so needed 3 coats. I also found the first coat dried too quickly so when I tried to go over sections I was actually lifting off the paint with the brush which was very frustrating. After 3 coats I was impressed with the overall finish but annoyingly there have already been a couple of light knocks to the door which has resulted in some of the paint chipping off - not what I was expecting from a supposedly hard-wearing outdoor paint.

It's paint, but it does what it says on the can! Bought paint to go on metal garage doors - after much searching for the ideal product (by me) and colour (my wife) we found Farrow & Ball - from choosing the paint on the web site, delivery through to application and looks everything was perfect.

Sophisticated finish, but requires good preparation We used Stone Blue in our little study, as we wanted a colour which would give the room some character. This is a beautiful lively colour in bright light, but a little dull in the low light of a dull day. It has provided a lovely contrast between the light colour of our furniture (white gloss) and shows off the books, making this a feature in its own right. Would be great in a more grown-up boy's room. We used the dark tones undercoat to ensure the depth of finish colour. It was a real shock to see the walls in a very dark grey colour...I nearly changed my mind ! Glad I didn't, as the result is a bit special. F&B...a great British company too ! July 30, 2014
Striking colour Used Stone Blue with White Tie in my bathroom and am delighted with the results. A wonderful depth of colour, deep but not dark. Really happy with the results. I am an F&B addict now. June 14, 2014

Great paint!! I have painted both front and back doors, also around window frames in Stone Blue No 86 Exterior eggshell. We visited the Manchester showroom to get a better idea of the colours and the staff there where very helpful and knowledgeable(free parking at the rear of shop). We like the fact that the paint does not contain loads of chemicals and does not seem to smell too badly. I used the recommended primer/base coat to get a true colour finish. The paint is a joy to use, not too thick, and it covers very well. I painted on a sunny day and it seemed to dry fairly quickly too. May 15, 2014
Gorgeous colour I chose this colour for my bathroom. It is half white tiles and half painted wall and was already a very pale blue. As the floor is blue mosaic tiles I didn't have much choice of colour palette but wanted something a bit different. This is a really beautiful intense, but not too dark blue and really changes the look of the bathroom. Used with off-white ceiling paint. April 29, 2014

Indigo, as imported in the 18th century, came in lumps and hence was often known as 'stone blue'. Dark Tones Undercoat.
