Leyland Trade Satin Fast Drying Paint Brilliant White 2.5Ltr
Another brilliant paint. Used for a quick touch up job over a very bad satin paint from a big DIY store. Well worth every penny. I covers very well, didn't affect the paint below, created a smooth even finish and even with two quick coats looked professional. Very pleased, the price couldn't really be matched and the quality superior to other big brand names. Very low odor and minimal cleaning with everything washable with water. Brilliant!

Worst 'paint' ever
Recently moved and have been buying Leyand Trade 10L emulsions by the bucket load so was expecting the same sort of quality.
Actually paid a professional painter to paint the woodwork around the stairs, skirting and door frames. Initially looked good but the slightest knock scratches off the paint. Few months on and hand rails look a mess.
Everything will have to be repainted which will be a nightmare due to all the scratches \ areas where it has peeled off.
When used with masking tape if allowed to dry half of the paint peels off with the tape.
Pro's: Will stay white longer than you oil based paints. Maybe useful for dado rails \ areas that will not have any contact. No smell and easy clean up.
Con's: Should not be classed as paint, never really hardens, slightest knock scratches the paint off. Needs multiple coats. Durability of jelly.

Even on prepared wood with good quality brushes it doesn't stick well or cover well. It looks a lot better dry than when it's going on but you need to try and get a good thick coat on, which can be difficult in intricate areas. Even then it really needs 2 coats. I had a lot of white woodwork to cover and wanted something to do the job quickly and thoroughly; this did not suit my purposes as I am going to have to do it all again to get the desired results, so no, I won't be buying again.

A great water based satin
This is the best water based satin we've used so far, great opacity and dries quickly without any harsh fumes. It can be a bit tricky to apply as it is very quick drying, as with most water based satins some brush marks and orange peel effect from rollers is to be expected. The finish is very similar to the Ronseal Wood Paint (satin) that we used to buy which is a relief as we haven't finished all the woodwork downstairs and don't want to start all over again. The finish is a slightly matt satin and not 'mid-sheen' satin like a main brand of paint from other DIY stores, which we found to be quite glossy. The best thing about this water based satin is it's white throughout in the tin and doesn't separate as badly as other paints, stirred for a couple of mins and ready to go.
