Does what it says on the tin.

Not 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...

“Suede Effect Emulsion!”

published 05/03/2004

covers nasty bits, easy to apply

quite pricey, can only apply with brush

Crown Suede Emulsion adds a subtle textured feel which is thoroughly modern. A hard wearing subtle textured matt emulsion for interior walls and ceilings. Ideal for rough walls as it adds a mottled, shadowed effect, like that of suede. Colours available: Sage Suede, Pale blue suede, Chalk suede...

“Who makes that paint?”

published 10/09/2000

Homebase paint or is it crown

none

Who makes that paint? Cant think of what paint to buy or that paint is too far expensive so what do I do? When I was painting my house I searched for paint and always come across the two main manufactures are Crown and Dulux, which are the two most expensive. There are several types of paint...

Quality product that does a professional job

OK I know that reading about paint may bring to mind that wonderful saying "It's like watching paint dry" but nevertheless I have an opinion that I would like to share with you. Being a very ametuer DIY enthusiast(even that's an exaggeration) I have in my time used every type and make of paint on...

“Rollers at dawn”

published 23/07/2001

Excellent paint

I'm a lazy git

Slish slish slish ... that evil sound despised by MAN since the very dawn of time, a sound so guaranteed to strike pain into the heart of the entire male race that you could bet the house on it ... slish slish slish .... there it is again, boring away at my consciousness, nagging away at my very...

Easy to apply. Nice smooth finish

Really smelly. Doesn't cover in one coat as it cla...

~ ~ The ‘mad cabbie’ is a lazy old sod at heart, and if I can find a handy ‘short cut’ to assist me to complete a task a bit easier and quicker, then that’s just fine by me. Add to that the fact that ‘do-it-yourself’ would most definitely NOT be one of my...

Sticky, smelly, colourful, wet.

Just imagine for a moment a product that can change your life in just one day, a product so simple it is actually incredibly complex, a product so full of vibrance and allure that everyone buys it at some point in their lives. Continue with me on this journey of fancy and imagine yourself sat...

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...

“A BRIGHTER SHADE OF PALE”

published 07/03/2001

good colour range, easy to mix lasts well

a 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...

I bought my house 4 years ago. I viewed the house and immediately thought, wow. But, its a big project! Built in 1875 it was clean and tidy but needed restoration throughout and updating. 4 years on and I'm still busy with it. I have put up new ceilings, plastered, new staircase, electrics...the...

saves time and money

limited range of colours

I usually find decorating fun. I love to think about the room that I wish to transform and spend hours thinking of colour schemes and accessories. The down side for me though is the preparation. I hate sanding down, cutting in and always end up in a muddle with the masking tape. This time we...

Satisfactory

nice colours

3 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...

Easy to apply brushes just wash out in water

I 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...

Covers in one coat - it really does

Pretty standard colours

Having just been decorating two bedrooms with different makes of paint in preparation for our second child (eight weeks to go!!) I have been once 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...
