Features and benefits

Stiffkey Blue is named after the north Norfolk beach where the mud, along with the cockles, is this particular blue hue. It adds a rich dramatic look in contemporary rooms, however when used in well lit spaces it will appear much more blue and works wonderfully when contrasted with Old White. Dark Tones Undercoat.

  • Farrow & Ball's signature, chalky matt finish, 2% sheen
  • Eco-friendly emulsion paint with zero VOC content
  • Wipeable and child safe
  • Waterbased and low odour
  • Quick drying
  • We want you to be satisfied with your colour selection. Not all monitors will display colours the same and paint tins may not show the same colour as your walls do in natural light. We therefore recommend you order a tester pot online or pop in store to pick one up so you are sure that this is the right colour for you

Bought this to do a small home office. Not only is it expensive but the price does not translate in to quality. Two coats of undercoat on the walls and then 3 coats of this thick paint later and still getting pin pricks of white showing through. The slightest rub and the chalk texture goes shiny and god forbid you have to wipe it at all because then you’ll pretty much have to paint the whole wall again. Love the colour but will never use farrow & ball again

NOT WIPEABLE

Estate emulsion- looks great but cannot have anything touching it or it marks ( not even a wire or a finger nail) you can’t touch it up as leaves a white chalky effect, so the whole wall would need repainting, do not bother

Brilliant colour and good coverage

1st try painting - 9 months ago

I think some of these reviews just haven't used the paint properly, I used one coat of dark tones undercoat and two coats of this paint, it went on really easy and although it looked a bit streaky when wet it dried perfect! Only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because it does mark very easily,(it does say on this website the estate emulsion is meant for less busy parts of the house and one of the others is more durable!) maybe another coat would help this I'm not sure, but I'm still buying some more to finish the rest of the room and will be trying another colour from F&B as well!

Awful paint

Used this as wanted a feature wall , the colour is lovely but the paint is just awful , it forms a film which just peels off , needed 3 coats but marks at the slightest touch and unable to touch up without showing , will never use Farrow and Ball again

Product looks great

I needed to apply 3 coats as it was a little patchy but once finished it looks really smart
