“Dulux Satinwood”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by Neelloc (1 review written)

We have always used Dulux products and our favourite paint WAS Satinwood. However after buying 2 tins to do all the white paintwork I have only used 1 tin and will be throwing the other away. It seems like painting with emulsion, and if you attempt to go over an area you may have missed, it "lifts" the coat already applied. What have you done Dulux? I will never purchase this again unless it is much improved!! … Read Full Review

“Very disappointed”

Written on: 21/08/2014 by xkKilgore364 (1 review written)

I have been a fan of dulux and crown paints for many years. I believe that you need to pay for good quality and was happy to do so. I have used dulux satinwood paint in the past and was delighted with the ease of use and the finish. Today I bought a tin of dulux satinwood brilliant white. It was runny, difficult to apply and felt like a gloss paint. Drips were running on the door that I was painting and I felt that I had been sold a conterfeit paint however on reading many reviews I realised… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your time with this paint.”

Written on: 24/07/2014

I have just painted a big cupboard with this paint. Whilst I was painting I realised I was not to put too much paint on the brush, as I found there were drips in my paint work. And so I continued painting with only a thin coat of paint, only to find when I returned to check on the result an hour later, that the paint had still run in places. I am very disheartened with the result, and now I am going to have to sand it all down and repaint again. I have painted this cupboard a couple of… Read Full Review

“ unfit for purpose -trading standards should take to...”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by 497Jackson (1 review written)

After wasting my hours of my life trying to repaint a wardrobe with Dulux Timeless mid sheen quick drying satinwood I am abandoning the project and going to buy paint stripper. I've used most of the can, tried a brush and a roller, have applied 4 layers in places, left it over a week to fully harden( and wait until I had more time) and on going back to attempt yet more layers to cover the previous colour realised that is scrapes /chips off really easily. I bought the Dulux over cheaper… Read Full Review

“Worst paint ever”

Written on: 11/07/2014 by Caravannerfwhiteknight (1 review written)

I used to use Dulux satin wood paint all the time, I have just recently redecorated my house and it is the worst paint I have ever had the misfortune to buy. Dries too quickly, leaves brush strokes, not able to blend any 'runs' so therefore dries ridges. Wish I'd never wasted my time and money on this product… Read Full Review

“useless paint product”

Written on: 05/05/2014

have been using dulux satintwood paint (oil based) for years - gives a lovely finish & easy to use. I stick to Dulux (or Crown) as these are quality products and are much better than other makes. this new paint is rubbish - dries too quick so bit of a pain when doing large items (doors), does not give a good finish and I noted that paint bits dry on the brush and then get brushed on the surface leaving it a mess. have wasted a bank holiday and very annoyed - wish I read these articles first… Read Full Review

“Not fit for purpose.”

Written on: 23/04/2014

I have used this product recently, the paint failed in every way possible, it did not smooth therefore dried showing brush strokes. It did not bond to the previous paint. It would not sand smooth after one week left th dry, when sanded it came off in lumps. We had to scrape off the paint in total, repair the surfaces and repaint with another brand of paint. Save yourself a lot of trouble, do not buy Dulux water based paint, use acrylic based paint… Read Full Review

“Dulux 'Once' satinwood”

Written on: 27/02/2014 by mrsdouglas (1 review written)

The word 'once' should have been the clue - to never bother buying it again! Am now into 3 coats trying to cover just a pale green to cream using this product. Stupidly, I should have remembered using this product in white to cover a cream bookcase last year - same problem, needed 3 coats, not the 'once' promised… Read Full Review

“Really Bad Paint”

Written on: 28/01/2014

I have just used this paint for the first time. It goes on like cheap undercoat. It's see through. It's impossible to get a good finish and I have just chucked the tin in the bin. What a waste of money. Avoid at all costs… Read Full Review

Just read you review, the best and only way I found to use this is to apply undercoat let it dry then apply the Satinwood with a clean brush then go over
each part as you go along with a mini roller takes a bit longer but excellent
results achieved by me every time.

“Worst paint ever”

Written on: 18/01/2014 by alexander53 (2 reviews written)

I have been using Dulux quick drying Satinwood, Gentle Fawn, to paint a radiator. Firstly, it's not the same colour as the colour chart. It's much lighter. Secondly, it's like water, has terrible coverage and is very prone to dripping and running due to its runny consistency and the temptation to overload the brush. It will take at least three coats to get anything like a satisfactory finish. I've always sworn by the Dulux in the past but this paint is rubbish… Read Full Review

We'll at least they don't call it 'one coat' and that's the only good thing I can say about it. It's opaque, streaky, and still looks a complete botched mess after three coats… Read Full Review

“Water based satinwood....powder paint at school was...”

Written on: 08/11/2013 by darlo ned (2 reviews written)

I am just repainting some shelves which were painted with oil based satinwood. The original finish with two coats was perfect with deep colour and no brushmarks.....almost looked like a laminated surface. Now i am using water based satinwood as i could not find the good stuff. First of all it is almost transparent with 4 coats not covering a dark mark. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get a smooth finish as the brushmarks do not run out. It says quick drying but after 24 hours in a heated rooM when i tried… Read Full Review

Usually buy crown satinwood but the dulux was on offer...what a false economy! It doesn't cover anything, not even very pale emulsion smudged onto the picture rail. So disappointed with time & money at a premium. Don't buy this product!… Read Full Review
