Fenwick & Tilbrook Pure Matt dismisses a longstanding compromise between designer paint aesthetics and practicality. Here is a paint with extraordinary pigment strength and an ultra-matt finish that is also durable and maintainable, giving the best of all worlds.
Perception of colour is a combination of its pigment and reflection: with an ultra-matt paint (less than 2% sheen) there is virtually no reflection. The low sheen value can make some ultra-matt paints appear dull, but Fenwick & Tilbrook Pure Matt possesses such remarkable chroma (colour intensity) that it appears to radiate colour and the range of tones you will see in different lights – highlights, shadows, artificial light, daylight – is positively beguiling.
This is a technically advanced paint that is a pleasure to use, flowing smoothly from the brush and quickly drying to a superb smooth coating, giving results that flatter the painter. What is truly extraordinary for an ultra-matt emulsion is that you can gently clean it with a damp cloth in case of accidents – a characteristic you must see to believe.
Finally, it is water based and almost completely odourless.
Perfect for: Interiors. Paint for plaster walls and ceilings, woodwork, metalwork and masonry.
