Colour Drop Competition

Inspired by a TikTok video where Christian Hull tries to guess the paint colour from a tinting machine, we’re running a competition with the TV Carpenter Podcast, giving you a chance to win a 750ml tin of Wood Paint in the colour of your choice.

We had such a lot of fun with the competition during Season 5 that we had to bring it back for Season 6 to spread a little more joy.

Season 6 starts on Friday 5th February and Wayne will announce the competition and give away a clue to the colour. The giveaway competition will run weekly giving you plenty of chances to enter and win.

From Saturday 13th March we’ll be putting a spin on the game to celebrate the forthcoming growing season and advance of the sun. We’ll be playing ‘Peel to Reveal’ with Peelable Glass Paint where you guess the Peelable Glass Paint colour instead. 2 winners will win a 750ml tin of Peelable Glass Paint in the featured colour, if they guess the colour correctly and are picked at random to win a pot.

Play the Game

  1. Listen to the TV Carpenter Podcast which goes live every Friday. Wayne will give away a clue to the colour which will be from the Thorndown Wood Paint Colour Chart, or from the Thorndown Somerset Heritage Colour Collection Wood Paint Colour Chartor for the last few weeks during ‘Peel to Reveal’it will be from the Peelable Glass Paint Colour Chart
  2. Watch the video on Saturday morning which will be uploaded to Wayne’s TV CarpenterInstagram account and grid and copied to Thorndown’s showing the colour drop and the mixed paint colour, or ‘Peel to Reveal’ for the last few weeks where you’ll be guessing the Pealable Glass Paint colour
  3. Guess what paint colour you think it is and comment on the post by midnight on Tuesday. Remember that the dried paint colour will be a bit darker and slightly different to the liquid colour!
  4. The paint colour will be revealed on Wednesday and the winner will be picked at random. They will be contacted via DM with a voucher to use on the Thorndown online shop in exchange for a free 750ml tin of Wood Paint in the colour of their choice delivered direct to their door. For ‘Peel to Reveal’ 2 lucky winners will receive a 750ml tin of Peelable Glass Paint in the revealed colour. Please note that free delivery can only be made to UK mainland and some areas such as Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands and Islands will incur a delivery fee
