Customer Questions
Can I use a paint sprayer to apply Farrow and Ball Modern Emulsion?
Yes, you can apply Farrow and Ball Modern Emulsion using a sprayer, brush or roller.
Can i use this for wood please?

Farrow and Ball Modern Emulsion is best suited for interior walls and ceilings. For interior woodwork, we would recommend Farrow and Ball Modern Eggshell

Is your paint genuine farrow and ball or do you just do a colour match?
All of our Farrow and Ball products are genuine and are mixed to order using genuine Farrow and Ball bases and tints on a Farrow and Ball mixing machine in-store. As we mix Farrow and Ball to order using their bases, tints and machines, we do not accept returns or exchanges on this range.
What woodwork colour do you suggest to go with Jitney
Jitney is a versatile neutral colour so you could pair it with simple white woodwork or add a contrasting colour like Pelt.
Does your farrow and Ball paint come in plain tins?
Our Farrow and Ball paints are genuine and all come in Farrow and Ball tins. We use Farrow and Ball tinting machines, tints and bases to mix to order Farrow and Ball orders rather than sell ready mixed tins which you may find in big brand superstores. The only ready mixed Farrow and Ball we sell at present, are the sample pots.
Does this paint come in unbranded tins?
All of our paints are genuine and come in branded tins. We mix Farrow and Ball paint to order using Farrow and Ball bases and colourant on the Farrow and Ball tinting machines in our stores provided by Farrow and Ball themselves.
What’s the best type of roller to get a smooth finish on walls ?
It depends on the condition of the wall but if it's in good condition, a short or medium pile roller will give the best result.
