I’m making soup that night
Is it filmed over four episodes as they couldn't cover it in two?
Very good @crj
You have the funny smarts.
Whats the betting they big up the eco paint but never mention they have acrylic in some of them?
Give that man a medal
I can barely wait. 10 mins to go. It’s like the semi final all over again!
What did you think @Peter Humphreys? ..What did everyone think to the finish of the Professional Painters?
You can’t polish a turd @PaintHQ .
I did smile at the horrendous roller stipple in the posh bathroom and the sheen on a wobbly plastered hallway.
No one mentioned it being owned by a hedge fund since the 90s.
I reckon ‘elephants breath’ came about when one of the ladies broke wind while vigorously stirring a sample.
My soup was lovely!
I have had to use this garbage on an external,both masonry and eggshell ,will not last the claimed 12 years....will
I dont mind using the stuff. But I hate the hype and the elistist attitude they seem to live off. And I was right - they mentioned the eco thing by simply sayingthey dropped oil based and just sell water based. They forgot to mention some of their paints have acrylic. Nice colours, but a hypocritical company and I can't see past that.
What really bugged me was inefficiency of hand mixing 75 litres per batch. It seems such a tiny amount for global company.
They also left out the bit where they mixed up Pointing using half a cup of tea as colourant.
Just watched it and I said the exact same thing to the missus. Fannying around mixing tiny quantities then testing (that was the biggest surprise of of programme , they actually test it !) each batch. What a colossal waste of time.
That bathroom! Not sure what was worse, the colour choice or the application. Couldn't help being reminded of the 'Emperor's Clothes' story when I saw the state of that bathroom and the whole programme really.
If they can afford f&b:
They can be talked into something better.
They can pay for good work, no point
Paying for a premium product and getting the pg tips monkeys to apply it.
Interesting as i did not see the prog. Hard to believe this ridiculous amount. It explains why you can hardly ever get 2 cans matching ! ( not that ive ever used the stuff )
Not if they are on that hook of “Oooohhh Iiiimmm sooooo in loooovvvee with maaahhhy FB daaaarrrrlllliiinng “ Prixk
We all moan about f&b
Their is an answer (@Tomcio & @Samdex came to mind)
Get f&b on a piece of wood and get bm on a piece of wood in near match of colour.
"Which one looks better madam? "
Turn over the piece "its also cheaper on labour as it needs less coats".
You can also carry 2 plasterboard samples to show your point.
Where is this claimed? As far as I can see, they claim six years.
