"I used this to paint my bathroom on advice from our builder. Never used eggshell before so didn't know what to expect. Really nice, good quality paint, excellent opacity, goes on lovely with a gloss roller. Would recommend! Great price too."

Excellent paint
8 Mar 2014

"Acrylic eggshell is one of, if not the best paint which can be used on wood as well as walls and ceilings. I used this on all my interior panelled doors, it gives a subtle eggshell finish that will not yellow and dries amazingly quickly between coats so you can move on quickly with the job. I would never go back to using white gloss which takes forever to dry and turns yellow after a year. I can see the point others have made about coverage but don't see it as an issue because the benefits far outway that. It's really tough and after two coats its covered well. I've just recommended it to my grown up kids starting out with their new home decorating the bathroom walls which need a bit of a splash proof finish.
Its excellent value for a large tin of eggshell paint.

Great paint
25 Feb 2014
By FalkirkHandyMan

"Bought this to paint my kitchen ceiling - repossessed house that had been rather neglected. Despite many hours cleaning the ceiling with sugar soap the ceiling colour was still uneven, so the paint needed good opacity.
The ceiling is approx 7.5 square metres. The first coat used just over half the tin, and the 2nd coat much less. Opacity after 2 coats is brilliant - a very even finish. The paint is very easy to work with too, and minimal dripping. Thoroughly recommend it.

"Used in our Bath / Shower room, it gives a non yellowing white sheen with little effort - no brushmarks! and a very durable surface.
Gave it two coats to ensure a really good coverage after first priming & undercoating with the acrylic primer / undercoat (two coats).
5 stars from me and 5 stars from her. Will definitely use this again."

A great product
5 Nov 2013
By EnthusiasticDIYer
, South Coast
"I was sceptical on the coverage aspect of this paint havig read through the reviews. Area of use was previously painted with vinyl silk but was very badly marked in a lot of areas. Decent preparation is the key and having washed off as much of the scuffs as possible I spot covered with the paint, left 1/2 an hour and then followed up with two coats with a couple of hours between coats.
Fantastic to use, applied with an emulsion brush and short pile roller provided excellent coverage, superb finish with no real sign of brush marks.
A really, really good paint."

acrylic egg shell
22 Dec 2012
By jamio
, chester
"Nice paint, I use it because I don't like to use/clean oil based, gives a really nice professional finish. Best used instead of gloss when the wood doesn't have a perfect finish and gloss would highlight all of the imperfections. Usually needs a couple of coats at least"

"I used this for kitchen walls, and it provides an easy-clean surface - and it's a lot cheaper than using Dulux kitchen paint or similar.
Also used in bedroom for skirting boards, coving, and window sill, and gives a nice sheen (in my opinion nicer than gloss).

Much better than Vinyl
26 Mar 2012
By HorsforthDIYer
, Leeds
"Used the acrylic base and this eggshell with tints added for a hallway on anaglypta and lining paper and looks great with tough finish. Covered well, dried quickly low odour. Would prefer if also stocked the 5Litre as was bit expensive buying smaller size but was convenient from Screwfix. Would probably use rather than Vinyl in future especially where gets more use."

excellent low odour and tough
22 Nov 2011
By Donk

"Yes it does need at least 3 coats over white primer if using a roller.
However dries really really quick so you save days in time over oil.
It dries tough and non sticky really quick too, so excellent for doors and storage areas.
Best of all the smell goeswithin a few days, and what smell there is isn't acrid.

"I usually buy this white acrylic eggshell from screwfix as a good undercoat but this time i ended up using it as an internal finnish coat on mdf shelving at home, I found it very hard wearing and at a very competitive price.
It dried in about 10 to 15 mins per coat, it needed 2 coats for a good professional job.
Exellent product.

very poor finish
18 Apr 2014
By Wisbys
, Bucks
"I was recommended this paint for its non-yellowing properties.
Having applied 3 coats to a bathroom door (which was previously painted in satinwood) using a brush, the finish achieved is very poor as brush marks are seen very easily. Unlike oil based paints is does not really spread out on the surface once applied and has no chance to as it dries out very quickly. Not impressed.

Poor coverage
7 Nov 2011
By HFWW
, Manchester
"The tin suggests that 2 coats will be required. Despite using the recommended undercoat which also required 2 coats, this paint needed 4 coats to achieve an even finish on some MDA cabinets I built. It does dry quickly, has low odour and is easy to clean up, but on balance you are better off with oil based product. I also tried spraying it, but it requires thinning by adding 30% water, which speeded up application but did not improve the coverage."

5 coats required
22 Jul 2010
By Nanj
, Cornwall
"Will never buy again. On skimmed plasterboard, and with everything done correctly, it required 5 coats to cover properly.
What you might save in cost per litre, you pay for in extra litres and loads of time wasted."
