Trouble with dark velvet on exterior
The paint is not spreading when using a brush, it is covering with a roller but need to cut in with a brush and it seems to be separating. Using 2 other brands on the same area and not experiencing problems with them
Where's the white?
Brought on sale at Bunnings to apply over good condition previously painted exterior timber flashings and door/window frames. Well prepared surfaces per instructions, applied a first coat and could hardly see the impact - re-stirred the 8 litre pot in case didn't do enough with the first 5 minutes effort. Same outcome, so little white pigment that it would take at least 5 coats to cover pale green existing paint, and likewise on previously primed timber surfaces. Suspect this batch is either faulty or there is serious lack of pigment ingredient. Returning to Bunnings today for full refund and will choose another brand.
Used on outside rendered walls already painted. Same colour as such. Walls washed and clean, correct texture roller and nap size used. Excellent result! Even, no blotches, 2 coats looks magic, and adhesion seem great. Very happy so far, went over 12yr old Solver paint no issues. Follow instructions, use correct applicators and you won’t have a issue. And we are just amateurs!
Great paint to use..don't know what the bad reviews are about. It is the same as or equal to all other paints. I have tried them all..if you prep properly you will avoid the so called mistakes. Great paint easy to use and good coverage. Used it for years including other brands and they are all equal as long as you use the proper paint for what you are painting.
Junk - don’t buy
Applied as per instructions over a previously painted surface (Solver duraguard). Previous paint was left to dry for a week and was sound and looked good. Got British paints from Bunnings as I was passing and easier to get the off white tint. Applied fine early to mid arvo and left to dry overnight. Whole thing broke down overnight and left a total mess with streaks of tint and blotches. BP help line was no help as my first layer was a non-BP or Dulux product and the conditions (20 degrees at 2-3pm) was too cold to guarantee it would set (not what it says on the tin). Had to sand all back, bought more duraguard from the paint shop and all worked fine under same conditions. I’d say avoid this junk.
Easy to apply
Not bad paint for the money. I have painted my pergola that was badly painted jarrah timber and had no trouble with the paint. I gave the timber 3 coats and a great result was achieved considering the timber was previously painted in what looked like green fence paint and once the timber was power washed it now looks like brand new
Rubbish Do not purchase
This paint is Rubbish, especially for the price they charge. Whilst it dry's very quickly the coverage is poor as it requires a second or even a third coat to cover over white primer. It also dry's streaky without a professional finish with either a brush or roller. I now have 3 litres of this rubbish to throw away as I have now purchased another brand of paint that covers perfectly.

Bella B.British Paints
Thank you for reaching out, British Paints Four Seasons Low Sheen is not suitable for a roof application. Our recommendation is to apply Dulux Weathershield Roof & Trim Semi Gloss, please follow all label instructions for best application and durability. Regards British Paints Team
We purchased 1L 4 Seasons tinted colour as recommended from Bunnings for our front door. I (spray without thinning) it to our new preprimered wooden door on a sunny day allow over night drying. Lightly sanded and resprayed another two coats on another fine day. Left for 5 days before handling. Had a professional fit the door to our front door shut. found it was tacky to touch. The next day the door had stuck to the rubber seal and was difficult to open. when we open it it started to pull the paint off in the top left corner ( lack of adhesion), quite concerned with this product. Any suggestions?
