Farrow & Ball paint has long been known for its distinctive palette and signature chalky look, but did you know it also comes in three hard-wearing exterior finishes?
Get to know Exterior Masonry, Exterior Eggshell, and Full Gloss in this complete guide to bringing exterior surfaces to life with Farrow & Ball:
Exterior Masonry: Exterior Masonry is specially formulated to protect and enhance porous masonry materials like brick, stone and concrete. This highly breathable paint allows moisture to evaporate, ensuring the longevity of the surface. With its exceptional adhesion and resistance to flaking, Exterior Masonry provides a long-lasting matt finish that highlights the texture of masonry surfaces.
Exterior Eggshell: Offering a subtle sheen and superb durability, the versatile Exterior Eggshell is ideal for outdoor wood and metal, providing excellent weather resistance while maintaining its colour integrity over time. With its low-sheen look, Exterior Eggshell adds a touch of elegance to fences, outbuildings, and outdoor furniture.
Full Gloss: If you’re looking to create a luxurious high-shine finish, Full Gloss is the perfect choice. This ultra-durable paint is designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions and is suitable for use on both interior and exterior wood and metal. Full Gloss creates a stunning reflective effect that adds depth and sophistication to architectural features – particularly front doors.
All three finishes are available in an extensive range of Farrow & Ball colours (see farrow-ball.com for a full list).
New! Farrow & Ball Wood Primer & Undercoat
For even greater depth of colour and the longest-lasting finish, Farrow & Ball usually recommends a three-coat system: one coat of Primer & Undercoat followed by two of topcoat.
The new Wood Primer & Undercoat has been reformulated from three previously separate products – combining resin-, knot- and tannin-blocking properties with improved adhesion – making it ideal for outdoor painting projects such as sheds.
