Hand Painted Wood Paint Colour Sample Blocks

You can now order Thorndown Wood Paint Colour Sample Blocks, delivered direct to your door!

Now available as an alternative to Wood Paint 150ml sample tins are these beautifully hand painted colour sample blocks, so you can see the exact colour of the paints that catch your eye at home.

Two coats (the recommended application) are painted onto FSC wood blocks measuring 41 x 46mm.

Choose the colours you’d like to see and order them as a size option on the website, for example if you like the look of Bishop Blue Wood Paint go to the Bishop Blue product page and on the TIN SIZE drop down menu, select the ‘Wooden painted sample’ option.

You can select up to 12 colours at only £1.50 each, for postage direct to your door via Royal Mail for just £1.99.


The blocks are painted with two coats for uniformity with the whole colour range, but we do recommend 2-3 coats for whites, off-whites, creams and semi-opaques for solidity of colour, or Stain Blocking Primer then 2 coats of paint colour. However the third coat is purely for aesthetic purposes so the painted blocks are a great way for you to see what these colours look like with two coats, then you can decide if you’d prefer a third coat and adjust coverage calculations accordingly.

Please note that there may be a slight variation in hue when painted onto substrates other than light or planed softwood, such as dark tropical hardwood or rough sawn timber.

If in any doubt or if you’d like to explore a colour further then you can buy a 150ml sample tin to paint up at home.
