"I used it to cover and seal a Lilac bathroom walls and ceiling, it did it with one coat and you can't see through it at all. Excellent coverage."

Superb Product - As Always.
4 Nov 2013
By Taffy1111
, South Wales
"Have used Leyland Paints for over 30 years. It was then - and still is - the best undercoat on the available market. I use Leyland Satinwood as a top coat. Both products are great and non yellowing - far better than some other well known "Dog Featured" products. I would recommend to anyone. Forget the water based products - break out the white spirits - It's worth it in the end."

The best undercoat yet
18 Jun 2013
By Daibell
, Hertfordshire
"Having just finished a can of a leading, expensive brand I thought I'd try Leyland as the reviews were good. Well, it's brilliant. It has superb coverage and the smell of the organic solvents is not as bad as the previous brand I was using. The paint is more of a gel than fluid but brushes as well as other oil-based paints. Strange that the can says 'Don't use solvents or thinners to clean hands; use soap and water' but there you go."

By segedunum

"One of the best under coats that I have used with superb covering power and the ability to dry reasonably quickly in cool weather. It covered a dark green surface in one coat, something that the big brands have difficulty with. It even survived an unforecast light shower without serious damage. At this price I do not think that Leyland undercoat can be beaten."

"Have just used this to cover new and restored door and window frames. Outstanding stuff, really thick so it managed to fill the smaller cracks and makes the whole frame look beautiful.
Easily as good as the expensive stuff"
