The technology experts at Farrow & Ball have re-engineered Dead Flat. With a breakthrough in paint chemistry they’ve been able to deliver the celebrated deep richness of colour combined with an incredibly durable paint. Their easy-to-use formulation can be painted onto walls, woodwork and metal.
Fantastic if you’re wanting to colour drench a room! Colour drenching is growing in popularity, amongst interior designers and DIY/home decorators alike. Farrow & Ball’s Dead Flat allows you to paint the same colour with the same finish, from your ceilings right down to your skirting boards.
Dead Flat gives you the option of Farrow & Ball’s depth of colour of their signature Estate emulsion, with the durability of Modern emulsion. Also carrying a Class1 scrub rating, means you can physically scrub marks from the paint without lifting the colour. Perfect for a home with young children, pets or both. It’s also ideal heavy traffic areas like halls/stairs/landings, boot and utility rooms.
A little bit of history of Farrow & Ball.
“Farrow & Ball originally developed Dead flat over 70 years ago, recreating the 18th century ‘flatted lead’ paint effect. This traditional method involved teams of artisans painstakingly layering coats of paint. Creating a deep, rich and pigmented matt look. This was usually reserved for the formal reception rooms of a house.”
“Tom Helme made a chance discovery of a tin of Dead Flat by Farrow & Ball in the early 90s, this was a pivotal moment in creating the Farrow & Ball we know today. Tom as impressed by the simplicity, quality and depth of colour of the paint. He sought out the manufacturing company and together they bought it, setting the brand on its current direction!”
Whilst waiting for water based paints like Johnstone’s Aqua Guard, Aqua Satin and MSP’s such as Bradite One Can or Zinsser’s All Coat to dry. You can leave the bristles of the brush fully submerged in the paint, this will keep the paint from drying on the brush which could possibly spoil the final finish coat.
Did you also know? You don’t need to wash out your rollers and paint trays at the end of the day!
If you’ve run out of time, but still haven’t finished using our Covaplus or Acrylic durable matt on your walls or ceilings. Although they’re quick drying and water based, you can wrap the rollers/trays in a plastic bag to slow down the drying process.
Making sure the you tie off each bag tightly, gently squeezing out any trapped air. This will keep the rollers/trays usable for up to 24 hours afterwards.
Have you heard about or even used one of the three Multi Surface Paints we stock?
Zinsser’s “All Coat”, Bradite’s “One Can” or Bedec’s “MSP”.
This month we’re going to give you a little bit more detail about them.
MSPs are all designed to be a two-coat system in one product. So, they’re self-priming and self-undercoating, with the second coat being the top or final coat*.
*When over painting strong colours or using a dark colour, it is advised that a third coat may be needed to achieve a good depth of colour.
That leads us nicely to the tinting of colours, all three of our MSPs can be coloured.
Zinsser’s “All Coat” is a tintable white, this means we can only tint it to pastel shades.
Bradite’s “One Can” is stocked in bases, allowing us to match to RAL, NCS and BS4800 colour palates.
Bedec’s “MSP” is also available in bases, and we can offer a full colour matching service in any colour with this product.
All three of our MSP’s are water based, so they’ll always stay their colour without any yellowing. Clean up will also be easy when you’ve finished, all you’ll need is some warm soapy water for your brushes/rollers/trays.
Also, another bonus because they’re water based! Their dry and re-coat time is super quick, with Bradite and Zinsser winning with a rapid 1 hour recoat time, Bedec’s 4 hour recoat time.
As their name suggests they can be painted on a very long list of materials/surfaces from old gloss paint, concrete through to ceramic tiles! All with the minimum of prep, basically a light sanding and/or degreasing. All three can be used inside as well as out, as all three are exterior rated.
Zinsser’s “All Coat” product is great on exterior wood like fascia’s and barge boards as it contains a Mould Algae resistant additive.
Bradite’s “One Can” is ideal for any exterior metal work as it has a rust inhibitor in the mix, it also has fantastic stain blocking properties so works well on new soft wood timber where knots are an issue.
Bedec’s “MSP” is fantastic if you’re wanting to match your favourite colours across a range of surfaces.
