Wood Knot & Resing Blocking Primer
Not quite 5 stars
Excellent quality product and great info available from the F&B website. I wouldn't use any other floor paint having used it twice now with excellent results.
First time I didn't use the F&B knot and resin blocking primer and the wood knots show through (although it doesn't greatly detract from the floor). So using this is advised.
Why not 5 stars? Why such a massive tin of paint F&B? You don't need much of it for patch priming but it only comes in relatively large tins. So I have way more than I need.

Best wood knot and resin blocking primer!
I bought this product, on recommendation from Farrow & Ball , after I had some staining come through paint on my newly restored ( 200yr old) front door! I did think at the time, it was a bit pricey at Â£20 for 750ml tin, but its certainly well worth the results!
It worked! 2 years on my front door looks great! It did exactly what it was supposed to. Since then I have gone through tins of this stuff as we've replaced and painted floors and had loads of new timber. etc.. But a little does go a Long way.
Very pleased- thank you Fartow and Ball!

Superb and did you know ......
Superb product and to the best of my knowledge the only water based stain blocker on the market by a heritage type brand ( ie zinsser 123 etc but they do little to match little greene and F & B for topcoats)
Inshort - if you use this primer then F and B undercoat followed by 2-3 topcoats of F anB estate then you can't really get a better/ tougher finish! Superb.
Use a decent brush though!

Really does do what it says on the tin
I used this as a primer on my garden shed before the undercoat. It goes on very smoothly and provided a good base for the undercoat. I found that an overall application (rather than just on any knots in the wood) gave the best result.

A pleasure to use. Great results. Good coverage and fast drying.

I couldn't believe after just one coat, all the knots and resinous areas on my timber were completely covered and sealed. Since using this paint I have had no problems with the knots showing through. Very happy customer here.
