Dulux One Coat 'Intense Truffle' one-coat matt tester pot. 

It was bought for landscaping, but after an accident with some glue I had to do something to disguise the back wall, so herewith the rear of the Metcalfe pub model PO 203, with the doors I posted earlier cut out and glazed, curtains etc, but mainly to show how good [IMHO] a job this paint does of imitating render. It has a very very slightly rough finish which I dabbed with a tissue to make rougher in places. Cheap, and with a splash of watercolour, easy to do.  I recommend it to the house!

Hi, Fidge,

Just checked again, no, no adverse effects. It's also nice and thick and I think it could work like a surface filler to fill up some of my less exact fits/ventilation openings....by the way, Metcalfe are to do a new corner pub this year although I want to try making 'Kingfisher Inn' from the Portsmouthpubs.org site from a terrace.

Doug
