Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best Having tried a number of paints on different surfaces I can confidently say this is the best paint I have used. I bought a repossessed house which had seen much better days, some of the stains on some walls a ceiling were bleeding straight through other paints. Thought I'd give this a shot and glad I did. 5 years on and the stains still haven't bled through. I now use this on all woodwork, ceilings and walls. Outstanding quality and value for money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can be tricky to apply I consider myself a reasonably good painter and I generally like Layland paints but I do find their acrylic eggshell difficult to use. It goes on fine but very quickly starts to thicken so that re brushing more than a minute or two after initial application causes the smooth surface of the paint to break up and form a very uneven and um-attractive finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely quick dry alright! Have read these reviews and desperately wanted to use this product for some time, having used the impressive dulux diamond Eggshell many times on site, the Leyland 10ltr appeared a competitively priced rival. Firstly it's an emulsion product so I haven't used it on wood as others have, only on walls and ceilings. After a standard mist coat I used this without thinning (my advice and the tubs instructions is definitely thin with water, and continuously!!). Also don't let the roller sleeve go too dry, or back roll too much, as it flashes and cures quicker than you can imagine and will only pull paint off, keep it very loose with the h2o and lay off as little as possible. For the top coat I may well use a short pile 12inch sleeve instead of the current medium pile, to try and prevent dragging and pulling (very thick paint) .. Once applied with water It's now drying in decent enough and looks solid, and of course a better quality than standard emulsions and more hard wearing. The walls were thirsty and I painted over large areas with 15ft walls high ceilings etc, but for this time of year with lower temperatures you don't expect it to cure so quick, definitely caught me out to begin with! Hoping the final top coat covers the imperfections and remaining pull patches, am sure it will, so long as I keep mixing the water to loosen her up and also to improve the coverage. A bit pricey for ten litres of paint that doesn't appear to be as good as the dulux for now (which is also far too much money, about the same price for just five litres). Maybe my expectations were too high to begin with so a little deflated initially about this products abilities.. However, got over it and with one coat still to go it's not over yet, I may be pleasantly surprised with the finish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good long lasting all rounder Used for many years, goes on easily with no fuss and gives a good finish. I use mainly on woodwork as an alternative to gloss. It lasts years even in kitchen. Cleans easily fending of most kinds of stains, White stays white over years just an excellent product and highly recommended.

what roller would you recommend for the application of this paint

Asked by: Donnab

Can this be used on plasterboard

Asked by: Donnab

Can I use this paint direct on bare wood internal doors?

Asked by: Izzy1234
Hello Izzy1234. When using this product on bare doors you must ensure the doors are first primed with an acrylic primer, which will promote the adhesion and durability of the Acrylic Eggshell. I would recommend the Leyland Trade Acrylic Primer Undercoat for this. Treat any knots with a suitable knotting solution and apply 2 coats the primer undercoat. After this you can apply the Acrylic Eggshell. Thanks

As the paint is expensive is it OK to use the normal Matt paint as a Base coat with the acrylic paint as final coat?

Asked by: Izzy1234
Hello Izzy1234. Matt emulsions are quite absorbent in nature, which will ultimately affect the overall performance of the Acrylic Eggshell. for obliterating previously painted surfaces, I would suggest either applying additional coats of the Acrylic Eggshell, or applying a coat of Leyland Trade Acrylic Primer Undercoat prior to finishing with the Acrylic Eggshell. Thanks
