Lesson learnt, don’t buy paint at Bunnings.
I purchased wall, ceiling and Woodwork paint to paint my house during COVID from Bunnings. Price wasn’t an issue. I purchased the premixed Antique White Dulux Wash and Wear which I’ve used before and again hasn’t let me down, a great paint. Taubmans Easy Coat was the only option they offered so I poorly assumed it was a good paint, I actually think I asked for a good ceiling white. I am on my third coat and it is still patchy and in even. The consistency is thinner than Dulux, but not being an expert not sure if this is just ceiling paint. Do yourself a favour and go to a paint store.

Terrible ceiling paint
This paint is so thin it does not cover well even after 3 coats .Still looks like it needs another coat.it wastes so much time trying to get it to look even. It drips all over the floor and walls instead.
It really is terrible paint. Just read reviews for Dulux and they’re not good either.
Help I need a great ceiling paint.......
Worst paint ever.
Used a premium roller and brush only to find that after two coats it dries very patchy. Looks like it needs another coat. Waste of time and money. Will switch to a Dulux paints to cover up the mess.
Complete waste of time
My kids water colours have better coverage than this products. Complete waste of time. Dries quickly because its as watery as milk. Upto my 3rd coat and it's still practically transparent.
DO NOT BUY THIS PAINT!!!
The easy coat flat ceiling paint has to be the worst paint I have had the misfortune to purchase in my 54 years. It is watery and so drips everywhere and with really poor coverage. It is like trying to paint with watered down UPVA glue. Just a waste of my time. Shame on you Taubmans for producing this poor excuse for paint!
Don't buy it
This is very watery paint that makes a terrible mess with drips. You can't load up a brush so the job takes way longer and compared to a different brand the finish is just awful. Freshening up my ceilings at home was a single coat job with the other paint but this Taubmans Easycoat will take 3 coats at least. I really don't think I can continue with it and seriously wish I hadn't bought it! Do yourself a favour and do not buy this paint.
Watery and patchy finish.
Easy coat ceiling paint.
Watery paint and a very patchy finish. Drips off rollers and brushs.
Ceiling was properly prepared.
Three coats and is still a very patchy finish. I will never use again.
Purchased in March 2019 for A$85.00.
Nothing wrong with this product
After using 15 litres of Haymes ceiling I was short paint for 2 rooms and thought I would try easycoat ceiling as it was on special at Bunnings.
In my opinion it was exactly the same and as good as the Haymes product - yes they are both a little watery but dry to a nice velvet finish. I think it helps to use a good quality roller and work quickly.
I used Taubmans Tradex Elusive White which is pretinted and so has excellent coverage. I renailed the garage ceiling, removed fluro lights and set the holes so I used their prep paint on the raw plaster before applying two finish coats. Six hours to sand the plaster and roll on the three coats. Great finish.
If you use untinted ceiling paint expect bad results.
do not buy
Ok I swore years ago I would never use taubmans paint again after a poor quality finish on a previous job,anyway I gave it another go bought from bunnings ,easycoat ceiling paint ,more like crapcoat ,spent 2 days instead of half a day ,painting ceiling this pint is really poor quality ,bad finish,poor everything
Not the best.
Purchased this paint to do several ceilings. Naturally mixed it properly but no matter how hard we stirred it, it was still very thin. This meant that when it was applied to the ceiling it dripped & left a patchy job. Have had better experiences with Taubman's other products but this one left me with more work than it should have.
Very poor coverage
13 square meters of previously painted white ceiling used 3.5 litres of this paint. I was stunned by the lack of coverage, especially when they claim "up to 16 M2 per litre." That is extremely ambitious on the part of taubmans. Factor this in when costing out your paints. Never again.
Good quality ceiling paint
I have used this paint to recoat a few ceilings in my home, and as ceiling paint goes, I can't fault it. All ceiling paints are thin and take a few coats to do a good job, this paint is no different. Has 'microban' anti bacterial agent in it so resists mould and is great for wet areas that produce steam.
Taubmans Easycoat Pro Ceiling Paint, don't buy it
I bought this ceiling paint because I thought the Microban might be useful for the kitchen and it's price point would make it a superior product to the base range Taubmans Tradex ceiling paint. I was wrong, this paint is just bad, it is thin, it covers poorly, drys patchy and the quoted 16 m2 per litre is not even close. I bought 15 litres of this stuff and wasted a day applying it before biting the bullet and buying 10L of Solver ceiling paint.
The cheaper Solver paint was thicker, went on easily and has significantly better coverage. I s...till have a few litres of the Taubmans but there is no way I would be using it anywhere where there is a span of ceiling much bigger than a toilet. For those in a similar situation I was applying it to my existing flat white ceilings which were in pretty good condition and did a test between the Solver and the Taubmans on the same surfaces. I don't know if the Solver is particularly good or if the Taubmans is just so bad that anything is good in comparison but I do know I won't ever buy a Taubmans paint again.
Questions & Answers
I have just used Taubmans Easycoat flat white ceiling paint on a previously white painted ceiling. After 2 coats the previously smooth ceiling is streaky with very poor coverage. The worst part is the smell which seems to get worse each day rather than subsiding even with the doors and windows open all day and night. How can I get rid of the smell?
I am using Taubmans interior walls white, first coat went on one week ago, as i'm applying second coat its dragging the first and second paint off as I overlap the new paint with brush or roller, its almost like the paint is curdling and reacting on itself.
Spoke to Taubmans custormer service they told me to sand and wash first coat before applying second coat, that done, it did not solve the problem. Any help its driving me mad? Graham
Before putting your first coat on was the wall chalk in feel or smooth and glossy if it’s not sticking to original paint then it wasn’t washed properly before painting any paint hi need a sound surface. Which means if it’s water based paint originally you use sugar soap over the whole surface if especially dirty or chalky you need to rinse that off then the paint should stick if the surface is pretty rough meaning pretty dirty and patch repair as much as you can then apply an undercoat before painting your 2 topcoats. If it’s a wet area it could mean there’s soap on the walls from showering and bath etc overtime the particles build up from the steam carrying them up to walls and ceiling so needs to very well washed with arm water and sugar soap sometimes twice. Unfortunatley you have already painted so the best way forward is either using a round orbital sander with a 180 grit or finer and sanding back to original surface so you can thoroughly clean and start again. I hope this helps. Good luck it’s not fun I know I’m I have just completed that whole process in bathroom ceiling paint flacked back to plaster almost because poor ventilation and poor preparation back in the eighties when place was built.
