Fenwick and Tilbrook Emulsion Review

By Richard Ryan

Well I used this paint for the 1st time this morning… Fenwick and Tilbrook emulsion. Couple of rooms, light colours and it covered ok.

One of the tins was a bit battered though, it was fine.

So, the customer was interested in what I thought about the emulsion.

I told her the proof in the pudding, and we would see if we achieved full coverage on the 2nd coat… which we did.

She liked the finish…and then asked my opinion again.

Well it was alright…needed a bit of thinning…but went on well and covered ok.
Now if it had gone on the wall of its own accord, that would have been fantastic. Sadly…..
