Rated 1 out of 5 by Mediocre at best This product does not apply smoothly. If you are only an occasional user you will find the tin lid completely inadequate for its purpose going rusty immediately and accumulating crud that drops back into the paint on opening it. After having it for 4 weeks I have just consigned 2/3 of a tin to the tip for disposal. Rather go for a quality product in an easy seal tub that will keep longer. 29 Apr 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuffed Great product, very similar quality to products with a much higher price point. Good coverage and easy to apply,, beats gloss every time! 2 Apr 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality product I purchased on recommendation to decorate an old cottage that has had some water damage because of all the rain, I used the appropriate stain & damp block and then used the Eggshell, the paint went on so easily,the coverage was brilliant and the end result was truly excellent, the only downside or me was the pungent smell and the exceptionally long drying time as i have no patience, I have just purchased 2 more cans to use in my family home and office so I must be pleased if you can stand the smell and the wait i would definitely recommend this product it is far better than any I have used in the past. , 22 Feb 2016

The tin I have seems to be very thick and therefore doesn't always give a smooth finish to woodwork. So wondered if you could thin it down?

Answer: 
Hello Sread. In comparison to a standard Vinyl emulsion Acrylic paints have a considerably lower water content, which is why your paint appears thicker than what you would expect. It is fine to thin these paints down, you would use clean water as it's thinner. However avoid over thinning the product as it will affect the overall opacity - I would advise no more than 10%. Thanks

I would like to use this for both interior walls and some wooden furniture using a fine spray system - I would expect that it would need to be diluted a little but I want a relatively hard wearing finish - would the Acrylic eggshell be suitable?

Answer: 
hello. The Leyland Trade Acrylic Eggshell is a highly durable coating and carries a 'scrubbable rating'. recommend for kitchens, bathrooms and areas of high traffic, this paint is ideal for areas where higher durability is required. it can also be applied to suitably primed woodwork - I would recommend the use of the Leyland Trade Acrylic Primer Undercoat. However this product is only formulated for interior use, so I would not recommend this product if the furniture you are painting is for exterior use. thanks

Hi, I plan to paint my internal doors and skirting boards with a brilliant white eggshell paint.

Please could you tell me what is the difference between 'Leyland Trade Acrylic Eggshell Emulsion Paint Brilliant White' and 'Leyland Trade Eggshell Paint Brilliant White' ?

Which would you recommend for the job?

Answer: 
Hello. Leyland Trade Acrylic Eggshell Emulsion is a water based paint. It is formulated with an Acrylic resin, which gives the paint added durability and a 'scrubble' rating. Recommended for kitchen and bathroom walls, it can also be used on suitable prepared and primed woodwork - in this case the use of our Acrylic Primer Undercoat on woodwork will act as a sufficient base to over decorate with. Leyland Trade Eggshell is an oil based paint and is formulated for use on interior woodwork. It is a highly durable paint and will dry to a smooth, washable finish. However, as this paint is oil based, over time the product will begin to yellow. I would advise the use of the Acrylic Eggshell, as with it being water based is a non yellowing product. However application will need to be more careful with the Acrylic Eggshell, as this product is not 'self-levelling', which essentially means brush marks will be harder to remove than an oil based product. I hope this helps. Best Regards

Answer: 
Hello matchstickman. Yes this product is suitable for use on interior woodwork, however I would recommend the use of our acrylic primer/undercoat first. apply 2 coats of the primer/undercoat first. That will give an adequate base for over painting with the acrylic eggshell. Thanks
