Is Farrow and Ball Dead Flat any Good?
Well, yes it defiantly gives an amazingly smooth flat finish, which you would expect. But it ‘s not a paint for the DIY enthusiast. It is an extremely unforgiving paint to work with, so if you’re looking to paint your home yourself with it, just don’t! Unless you know what you’re doing with a paint brush that is!
The paint also easily marks, so if you have little hands around the home again, probably not to wise.
