Farrow and Ball Estate Eggshell - tips on using
Dec 14th, 2011, 6:39pm
 
I thought that I would post here information that I have gained in talking to F&B Technical regarding the best way to apply this paint.

I have found that the new formulation of Estate Eggshell gets very gloopy in use.  

It is worth diluting it with a bit of water (2-5%) before using it.

Use two brushes...as the paint starts to dry and go gloopy on one of the brushes, stick it in a jam jar of water. Then swap over when the second brush starts to get gloopy.

Use synthetic bristles.

Complaints that it takes a long time to dry/go hard.  Try and avoid applying the paint too thickly as the topmost few molecules go dry very quickly and this stops the water coming out of the paint layers underneath thus taking a long time to dry hard.

If painting in a centrally heated room, turn it off while painting!

Keep the paint at room temperature...ie warm.

If painting doors, paint any mouldings first. Then use a roller on the rails and then layoff with the brush onto the stiles.

Work fast.
