Hanford and Green Paint


I was sent some Hanford and Green paint by the Decorators Forum UK to test out. I thought I’d give a little bit of feedback about the products.


I for one am loving the acrylic satin. It is great opacity, 2 coats straight on pre primed doors and jobs a good un. Fantastic bit of gear. It was a tad thick for my liking, but a spot of water and a good mix and it was spot on. I would go and buy this gear for any type of job. The fact the recoat times is only an hour and the coverage is great. (Showed a picture of 1 coat on top of a bare door to show)


As for the Hanfor and Green white matt, I am impressed with it. Opacity is good and it is durable.  The problem is you can buy similar or better paint for a lot less money. Tikkurila Anti-Reflex 2 for example, a paint I really like. It is cheaper than Hanford and Green and the fact you can touch it up without it flashing.
