Excellent paint

"Been using this for a while and after reading some of the reviews on here thought i would add mine . I think it is excellent value and does the job brilliant for new plaster and i found it no problem cover other paint . i painted over a red and blue walls in bedroom and only took 2 coats to do it. As for some of the more expensive paints i have had my fair share of rubbish ones."

Excellent Value

"Bought this paint to use in a buy to let property. Expected it to be hard work but I was pleasantly surprised. Ceilings were a mixture of new and old plaster, filler, and some sealer from the previous owner and then had been painted with diluted white emulsion This paint covered in a single coat. I was amazed as the mixed surfaces usually take two coats. Probably does not go as far as a tin of Dulux but at £7.50 on a special offer I was highly impressed. Also used the magnolia which was just as good. The consistency of the paint is a little bit different from the big brands which is perhaps where the comments on surface come from. With the rollers we used I have no problem with the finished surface we achieved although it may be slightly more textured than Dulux. I am sure if you added a little water to thin it slightly it would leave a perfect surface.""

"We are a local football club in Ulverston,Cumbria and we use white emulsion paint to mark football pitches out for match days.As you can imagine costs a small fortune over a season with a number of pitches to mark out each week.
We bought this when on promotion 20ltrs for £15 and it was spot on for us,we did have a stock on but sadly ran out now.The season is about to start again so logged on to price up,gutted this is no longer on promotion and i'm hoping this comes back on offer very soon as it's ideal for our use.
Maybe Barrow in Furness Screwfix would like to sponsor our club this season in paint"

Better than expected

By AldousVoice

"I bought several tins of this to paint the inside of a freshly plastered garage. I wasn't expecting much from it to be honest but was pleasantly surprised. The mist coat went on OK and the subsequent coats covered well and the finish was more than acceptable. For the money it is great value."

"very good value used two buckets of this to paint a number of ceilings and also to help cover up some bright colors on 2 walls which were to go pale brown. worked great on ceilings and covered the walls rather well, slight difference in coverage compared to leading brand but a huge difference in price makes up for it. would recommend"

Cheep, but not so cheerful
17 Mar 2014
By Milkybar
, Wiltshire
"This paint really is cheep! And if I’m honest I should have known better. Saying that, if all you need to do is freshen up an existing white wall, or ceiling that’s already in good condition, then this will do the job OK. And I don’t even mind the mild textured finish you get from the roller. Also using it thinned, as a base coat on new plaster seems to work OK.
However…. If you have a surface with repaired/filled cracks & blemishes, or there’s a different colour base coat then forget it, you might as well not bother. The paints ability to give a good solid cover is non-existent, it gives an effect of moving a milky slime and just doesn’t feel right.
It’s cheep and if you do go for it there should be no moans, after all what can you expect for £15 for 20 Lt?"

basic white emulsion
20 Nov 2013
By f2reddy
, stoke on trent
"used this as a wash on a newly plastered wall with three coats
gave a nice finish and easy to apply but you immediatly spot the difference in quality when you start to put a "big name" emulsion over it
cant really be dissapointed at the price overall its a good undercoat but not what I would use as a finish coat

Basic Emulsion paint offer

By Sparks1952

"I suppose you get what you pay for! Quite weak in opacity, very well priced for the volume but it took 3 coats what would have taken 2 with a brand name product. So the product price was good but the labour content cancelled the saving."

By RSTON
, Greenock
"And not by the paint! I'm dumbfounded that this paint has any reviews higher than one star. It is the worst paint I have ever used. I had the Leyland trade contract in my hand in store and spotted this and decided to try it. Oh how I wish I hadn't three coats so far and the original MAGNOLIA is still showing through. DO NOT BUY THIS PAINT. Buy something better pay more and save money and time. Furious to say the least!"

Don't waste your money
8 Nov 2013
By TheTruth
, Buckinghamshire
"I expected to need an extra coat as the paint was cheap.
4 coats later you can still see the original coloured emulsion coming through. Only ok as an initial plaster coat but useless for anything else,
Sadly a waste of money (and time)."
