French Paint. Is it any good?
French paint (especially emulsion) seems like it should work the same way as UK paint. It comes in a big tub, smells a bit like paint and if you stir it is feels a bit like paint. Dip your brush in and you'd be convinced that it is a bit like paint. That is, right up to the point that you try to use it as paint. It's then that you realise that all is not the same product at all.
There are those that think French paint is better and there are those that'd rather drive back to the UK just for 5 litres or Dulux matt white for the kitchen ceiling than use it. And indeed, driving back may be cheaper. It certainly would be if only Ryanair would let you fly back with a couple of tins on your lap.
All I'll say is that it's much better than it was 15 years ago and that, yes, it still has a long way to go.
