Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers well and easy to apply I have used this eggshell paint before and it is easy to apply and covers well. It is better than the newer gloss paints as it does not loose its whiteness after a while. The paint arrived on time and service was good. I am impressed with Leyland paints and will try their other ones in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Went on like a dream, managed to paint 9 doors both sides and the frames. Covered brilliantly. Great value for money. Only downside is it takes 4-6 hours to touch dry and you'll need good ventilation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Eggshell Bought this today for skirting board's and door frames, this is not eggshell as stated, its a gloss finish and takes 16-24hrs to dry. Will now have to sand down and repaint with other branded eggshell, Luckily had only painted daydo rail and one door frame. Waste of money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good good quality topcoat The Leyland Trade paint range is very good quality. Plenty of pigment in the paint gives a substantial consistency which achieves good coverage and opacity. The eggshell finish results in a pleasant subtle sheen which gives a contemporary feel to the decor whilst still being durable and easily wiped down. Brushes, and any spills, clean up readily with white spirit. Water based paints are seen as a more eco-friendly alternative to solvent based paints but the solvent based to my mind still achieves a thicker and better finish, better coverage and opacity and greater durability. All in all, very pleased and will continue to use and recommend.

I want to use with an Airless Spray gun which is designed for water and solvent based paints. Is this paint OK to be thinned as necessary with white spirit or similar to get viscosity within 150 Din-sec?? Advice please

Asked by: Saddlers1888
Hello Saddlers1888 Given this is a solvent based product we urge you to take all the correct precautions, wearing the correct PPE and RPE. The paint will go thorugh the machine with no issues, there are two main points; Health and safety is paramount, so ensure good ventialtion and circulation, and the PPE. The second is airless machines (depending on machine) can have 15 metres of hose, where you are obviously carrying alot of wet material - this can take a lot of cleaning. Given the power of airless machines, thinning to certain viscosity levels is less important than for HVLP machines. The maximum dilution amount is 10% - 100ml white spirit per litre of paint, this is the extreme and would add 2.5% at a time, small amount to these products make a big difference. I hope this helps. Thank you

Prep required for painting on mdf

Will pre-primed mdf need any sanding/keying, primer or undercoat, before applying this eggshell paint?
Asked by: Els2
Hello Els2 It all depends on the quality of the MDF, most pre primed will require a light sand, especially to formed areas where the grain is naturally rougher. The primer used on the pre primed MDF is usually very thin, try to ensure this is as solid in colour as possible prior to applying your chosen topcoats. Thank you

Satinwood vs Gloss? (Both Oil Based) Which is more durable? Thanks

Asked by: BasZ
BasZ In a durability test, the gloss would marginally win. The higher the sheen level the more resistant it is, however, under regular use, the end user would not notice such small margins. Thank you

There’s pitting in the paint surface, looks as if it was rained on, but was inside.

The door had previously been painted, and I lightly sanded it and wiped down. . Any thoughts? Suggestions on what to do next?
Asked by: Foxhill34
Thank you for your enquiry, the high resin content in Eggshell can locate traces of surface contaminants such as grease, polish, wax, silicones etc. These can prevent the coating forming a smooth film, and in effect separate around the small areas or deposits on the surface, leaving spots, or indentations, the effect is called cissing. Wipe the surface with white spirits on a cloth, will degrease the surface, and the cloth will lift any contamination, once dry slightly sand and repaint
