“Dreadful product”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by GriffinNunez (1 review written)

I agree with the other reviews. The paint is tacky / rubbery and won't dry. I had remove it (like pulling bits of rubber off) and do the job again with proper paint. Doesn't even merit one star… Read Full Review

“I think others who have commentated have been a bit kind”

Written on: 10/05/2016 by Zayden146 (1 review written)

This paint, from a supposedly reputable manufacturer (Dulux) and retailer (B&Q) is an absolute disgrace. I don't know what the chemical composition is (some weird water based 'plastic' concoction) but I do know it doesn't dry (3 days on), 2 coats means 5 or 6 coats and it's impossible to get (or create)a decent surface finish.I have limited mobility so decorating is difficult even when everything goes according to plan. I'm now on day 6 for a task that should have taken 2 days maximum. I've… Read Full Review

“What a waste of time and money”

Written on: 30/04/2016

So pleased to read these reveiws and find out it's not something I'm doing wrong. I carefully degreased, sanded and primed twice a pine cupboard, sanding down and cleaning between each stage. I then applied 3 coats of Dulux quick dry satinwood (with a new brush)to get good enough coverage. After each coat I was left with a rough bobbly surface which I sanded down and cleaned dust away. I can't get anywhere near a satisfactory finish - it is rough with what looks like sand grains and has brush… Read Full Review

“Absolute rubbish”

Written on: 29/03/2016

Have used woodsheen for 25 years. Have never found the application so unsatisfatory before.I thought it was me but having used white and a mixed can the finish is blotchy and gritty. Very disappointing after all the work entailed. I am going to have to leave it at present but having ALWAYS used Dulux I won't be using it again. … Read Full Review

“Ruined my paintwork: Do not buy or you'll regret it!”

Written on: 14/02/2016

I bought his paint for some secondhand bedroom furniture. I found it OK on small pieces but on the dressing table top, which is bigger, it dried so quickly that I couldn't blend in the brush strokes and just got left with lumps and streaks where they overlapped. I assumed it was something I had done wrong and gave it a second, and third coat, sanding in between, but it just got worse. I decided the only way out of this was to remove the paint and start again but that proved almost… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/02/2016

Totally agree with this review. I have used Dulux paints for 40plus years but this product is just awful. I wish Dulux would bring back the original satin finish paint - Silthane Silk, for a long lasting, easy to use product

I found the same problem when painting a panelled door. It dries too quickly to lay-off. Even watched a Dulux video on Youtube which recommends wiping the surface with a damp cloth before painting, which I did but still got a lousy finished. Exchanged for an oil-based paint.

“Brilliant White mid sheen”

Written on: 08/02/2016 by Vaughan26 (1 review written)

This product doesn't even merit one star. Unable to avoid brush marks. Items placed on windowsills/ shelves adhere to finish and when removed pull paint away even after three weeks drying time in a centrally heated environment. This seems to be a recent problem as I have used similar Dulux products although this was a couple of years ago. Rubbing down is a nightmare as the abrasive tends to pull the paint off in lumps rather than producing a fine dust. The surfaces were given two coats of… Read Full Review

“After 4 weeks my hall stairs and landing is still...”

Written on: 30/12/2015 by ruPiper231 (1 review written)

We had a top decorator in as my hall stairs and landing is very awkward, and he made a wonderful job as expected, BUT after four weeks the satinwood is still sticky, the job looks amazing but the doors stick and as I put my hands on the bannister it is tacky,what can I do we can't even put further coats on as we can't sand down. I have always used Dulux but this ridiculous.I can't really rate this produce as its a failure. If anything can be done about it please advise… Read Full Review

“absolutely rubbish!!! ”

Written on: 26/08/2015 by NunoMonteiro (1 review written)

I´m a tradesman, I started a job for a company a month ago, I have finished the job around 3 weeks ago, this week the company called me saying that the paint was not dry and some parts were starting to peel, I was a bit surprised as I have never had that problem in my life, so they said that they were going to call a Dulux Rep, I thought that was fair enough, so today I receided a message from the company saying that the Dulux Rep and two painters were in the house and they all said "to many… Read Full Review

“Don't ever use this paint!”

Written on: 23/08/2015

I can't find words bad enough to describe this product! I painted all the woodwork in my bedrooms several weeks ago and from the start, I wasn't impressed by the coverage, which seemed very patchy. When finished, I wasn't happy with the end result, but decided to leave it for the time being as I didn't really have the time and energy to do anything about it for the forseeable future. Now I'm going to have to do something alot sooner than I thought. Why? The paint has now gone sticky and looks… Read Full Review

I am in the process of painting hall and stairway. The paint does not go on evenly and lease streaks I am about to take the full tin back to retailer and get a refund. We have always relied on Dulux brand but I have now to go find a substitute to complete the decorating. So disappointing!… Read Full Review

“Quality brand - awful product”

Written on: 14/06/2015 by Andy0830 (1 review written)

Have used Dulux satinwood many times in the past when it was an oil based paint and with proper pre prep always gave a good finish. Extremely dissapointed with the water based version, yes it is a bit watery to apply nbut the main criticism is the finish. Truly appalling! Sticky and soft in many places and the bannister became dirty and even stickier after just a few weeks. Try to clean it and paint just peels off in places! Put off Dulux for good now, such a waste of valuable time… Read Full Review

“Truely awful paint”

Written on: 09/06/2015 by fzThornton75 (1 review written)

I wish I had read these reviews before buying and painting my house with this paint, but I trusted Dulux to be a good brand. This paint is terrible, and the worst element of it is IT DOES NOT DRY! I have painted some bookshelves in my house with it (along with my doors, skirting boards, wardrobe and more) and two months later the books are still sticking to the paint. What's more, it can't be sanded back as it simply clumps up as it's not a hard tough properly set paint for sanding. What a… Read Full Review

“This paint is a disaster. Please do not buy it.”

Written on: 31/05/2015 by Stephen0076 (1 review written)

I bought a tin of Dulux quick-drying satinwood in black to form the main colour of a folding Art Deco screen I was building. After priming and sanding the wood I applied this. The paint left brush marks and it was impossible to keep a wet edge as it began to dry far too quickly. Overnight, it had dried but still felt tacky/greasy/clammy, which is the best way I can describe it, and what's more, even after 48 hours it scratched off with my fingernail. It was then that I typed in the problem to… Read Full Review

“Disastrous!”

Written on: 27/05/2015 by ehFernandez169 (1 review written)

I used this paint as it was fast drying and is reputed not to discolour as oil based whites do. The fist thing I noticed was that I had lot of brush marks, this being particularly noticeable on large surfaces. I was surprised as I am normally a reasonable painter. When the job was finished (I had painted 2 large room plus stairs and landing) within a week the paint on the bannisters was becoming very dirty and sticky and within 2 weeks started to peel off in places. The finish is reasonable… Read Full Review

“Appalling finish - not recommended”

Written on: 11/05/2015 by Lilyanaf122 (1 review written)

This paint gives the most appalling finish. Grooves from every fibre of the brush are left on the surface you've painted. The paint starts to dry before you get a chance to attempt to get an even finish. So yes it is quick dry. Too quick! The paint when dry has a thin, flimsy look about it, like you really need more coats even though you've already done one extra coat than you would normally do. Only saving grace is that you can clean the brush in water. Will not bother with this paint again… Read Full Review

“Absolute rubbish, do not buy”

Written on: 30/04/2015 by 415Power (1 review written)

Last week I took a few days annual leave to prepare and paint my bannister, spindles and so on. After sanding down, cleaning up, caulking and various other bits of preparation I undercoated and then had the misfortune of selecting Dulux Quick Dry Satinwood Brilliant White. I figured that quicker drying water based paint would be better as I have a golden retriever roaming around the house and he would be less likely to get hair all over the finish. Big mistake. Having used other satinwood… Read Full Review
