An inky navy

This inky blue is named after the Norfolk beach where the mud, along with the cockles, share a particular deep navy hue. Although traditional in feel, Stiffkey Blue is often used as an alternative to Down Pipe to create a richly dramatic space with a more contemporary finish. When used in well lit areas of the home it will appear much bluer, working wonderfully when contrasted with Ammonite. Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Calculating Quantities

Not ordering enough paint for your decorating project can be very frustrating, but over ordering will mean you’re left with items you don’t need. You can minimize the chances of this happening by using our convenient paint calculator. While our advice is for guidance only, we would strongly recommend that you always check with your decorator before ordering or email customerservices@farrow-ball.com for further advice or assistance. Please note that we do not take doors, windows and alcoves into consideration when making our calculations.

Please also take into account the nature of the surface which you are painting beforehand. Porous walls are likely to require extra coats and vast colour transformations (i.e. white to black or black to white) are also likely to require a third coat. You can minimize the chance of this by using the correct undercoat.

The table below offers a guide to the maximum coverage for all our paint finishes. Coverage is dependent on thickness of application and surface. All product pages contain an interactive paint calculator to help you choose the right amount – please note this calculator is only suitable for calculating paint for walls only.

Preparation & Application

Once you’ve made a final decision about finish and colour, it’s time to start the practical part of the decorating process. From preparing your surface to choosing tools for flawless application, our application tips will guide you through the next steps to creating your perfect home.

Preparing Surfaces
Proper surface preparation is key to helping you get the most from your chosen colour and finish.

• Make sure the surface you’re planning to paint is in good condition – clean, dry, and free of grease, mould or algae

• Fill or seal any large imperfections

For more detailed advice on the correct steps for preparing different surfaces, visit the specific pages below, step in store, or give our Customer Services team a call on +44 (0)1202 876141.

The Farrow & Ball System
Our paint colours are renowned for their depth, complexity, and ability to respond extraordinarily to light. For an even, long-lasting finish, we recommend following the Farrow & Ball system:

• One coat of our Primer & Undercoat in the recommended tone

• Two coats of your chosen topcoat

For some surfaces, such as newly plastered and dry-lined walls, we recommend a diluted layer of your chosen Farrow & Ball topcoat colour, followed by two full coats.

To ensure the best finish, it’s important to let the recommended drying time pass between coats. We list the drying time for each finish on its individual product page, but please be aware that these can vary depending on factors like temperature, humidity, and the shade being applied.
