Mr & Mrs Scampi have fun up against the wall.

AdvantagesDoes what it says on the tin.

DisadvantagesNot the cheapest

"Having recently moved into a new house Scampi is having a bit of a decorating frenzy at the moment, under the watchful eye of Mrs Scampi. First on the agenda was the living room which was still it's original magnolia colour as painted by Wimpey some 4 years ago when the house was first built. (the previous owner had declined the decorating option). Now some of you may think reading a paint review is as exciting as watching the stuff dry, and you'd ..." Read review

Picasso Eat Your Heart Out

AdvantagesEasy to apply. Nice smooth finish

DisadvantagesReally smelly. Doesn't cover in one coat as it claims.

"...proving that, I wonder?!) And Crown also reserves the right to send out someone to actually inspect your work before making any refund. This is as far as the ‘mad cabbie’ took this, as let’s be honest, who’s going to be bothered going to all that trouble and hassle for the sake of €20. And especially since I was actually delighted with the finished paint job once I had applied the required second coat. One last little ..." Read review

Rollers at dawn

AdvantagesExcellent paint

DisadvantagesI'm a lazy git

"...off all escape routes. We chose Crown Silk Emulsion in a very nice shade called Powder Blue, very light and yet extremely colourful and better on the wall than the little tile on the tin led us to believe, PERFICK... Now many people (the father in law included) who tell you to water paint down before applying it on the basis that it goes further and goes on quicker, but I've found that to be the road to a very messed up carpet when you start ..."

Dont just paint it - suede it.

AdvantagesWarm, soft effect that looks modern and interesting.

DisadvantagesCan only use a paintbrush and getting it on the skiting board.

"This exquisite new idea from Crown is truly astounding We have just redecorated the front room. For a little difference, having just smooth plastered the walls, and on wanting a modern effect with painting over it instead of wallpapering, we chose this new product that Crown has just released. It only comes in a range of 12 colours at the moment, so a little disadvantageous, but the colours are quite common colours - particularly as its a modern ..." Read review

The most amazing product ever devised

AdvantagesSticky, smelly, colourful, wet.

DisadvantagesSticky, smelly, colourful, wet.

"...product is for you. It's Paint. Crown Paint. Specifically, Crown Matt Emulsion Pale Green (I forget the silly name of the colour) Paint. It comes in a metal tin with a handy carry handle. You will need an implement called a Brush (not included, all brushes are compatable, not just crown ones) or a roller (a sort of sponge on a revolving stick), for only £17.95 you can get 5 litres in any colour of the rainbow (enough to cover a good sized room ..."

Crown the king of paints

AdvantagesQuality product that does a professional job

DisadvantagesMore expensive than normal paint although I think it's worth it

"...around at the moment is CROWN Solo.It carries a guarentee with it that it will cover in 1 coat and that is exactly what it does. Not only does it cover in one coat but it is easy to use and gives a wonderful finish. It is available in a range of sizes and colours and can be purchased at all of the aforementioned DIY shops. I have used it on a variety of different surfaces such as wood and metal both indoors and out.I have yet to be disappointed ..." Read review

A BRIGHTER SHADE OF PALE

Advantagesgood colour range, easy to mix lasts well

Disadvantagesa little more expensive than some other makes

"Ok well how do you explain the paint shades then? Crown paint comes in various shades. You have bright ones like sun goddess which is a mid sheen emulsion from the latino range this is a bright yellow in colour. Or maybe Riva Red solo One Coat mid sheen emulsion, which of course is red. You maybe looking for a more traditional or contemporary shade so Midnight Highlight Solo One Coat mid sheen emulsion or Blue Mosel vinyl matt emulsion could ..." Read review

Who makes that paint?

AdvantagesHomebase paint or is it crown

Disadvantagesnone

"...the two main manufactures are Crown and Dulux, which are the two most expensive. There are several types of paint manufactures that supply company’s own brand of paint such as Homebase, B&Q, and Wicks etc. not many people would compare Crown paints with homebase paint but why? Somebody has to make the paint for Homebase but who believe it or not it’s CROWN and far cheaper. You would actually think in store paints are not good quality paints ..." Read review

Crown "Indicoat" Brilliant White Emulsion

Advantages Paint on pink - dries white..see easily where u have painted

Disadvantages Does not really cover that well - a bit thin! Expensive

"...a new product to me. Crown Indicoat brilliant white emulsion. I chose the Matt one. (Also available in Silk) I have used competitors products which turned out better than this one. The Indicoat product is a pale pink emulsion. The idea is that you paint it onto old, already white ceilings / walls and you immediately see where you have painted (Pink on white). This is a great idea for anyone who struggles with eyesight but equally good for anyone ..." Read review

it does what is says on the tin

Advantagessaves time and money

Disadvantageslimited range of colours

"... I choose one of the Crown SOLO gloss colours. These come in a range of colours and whilst the choice is not vast, I easily found one that I liked and was happy with. The deep blue we decided upon is great. The colour in the can is very similar to the colour in the tin!!! The tins are 750 MLS each and cost under seven pounds each. The main feature for me is that it was so thick it was easy to put on. It coloured evenly and smoothly and did not have ..." Read review

Read This to avoid Painting Disappointment

Advantagesnice colours

Disadvantages3 coats needed!!!

"Like many people, I expect crown paints to be the best - they have a great reputation based on their name - but what are they "really" like. Well, my comments are based on hard found experience these past few weeks as I struggle to paint my newly bought home from top to bottom! I swept through their colour charts and eagerly chose the matt emulsion colours. The paint DOES VARY according to the colour being applied!! I applied "china cup" ..." Read review

Express the room designer in you

AdvantagesEasy to apply brushes just wash out in water

DisadvantagesI did not find any

"Whislt decorating we were looking for something a little different without be overly expensive. This paint was quite a surprise. The end result looks luxurious and leaves the room with a warm cozy feeling. We have used it on the accent wall only, as all over I think it would be too much. The colour we chose was soft and subtle plum, which is a deep rich colour and gives the room texture. It is so easy to apply. You brush it on with criss cross ..." Read review

Crown solo one coat emulsion rocks

AdvantagesCovers in one coat - it really does

DisadvantagesPretty standard colours

"...more impressed and amazed that Crown Solo really does cover in one coat. The double cream consistency goes on quickly and thickly and dries within a few hours (2-4) to a vibrant chalky wall covering. We used 'Purple Heart' this time (we have used a cornflower blue before) and are really pleased with the coverage (and cost) of this paint for the play area of the kids' room - the colour's delightful and the effect is better than we had hoped.
