I have just finished a project of front gates and fencing using your RAL1760 paint and I’m delighted with both the quality of the paint and subsequent end result.

Kind Regards

Mr Tom Cleugh

I’m delighted to tell you that the order I placed 23 hours ago has just arrived (in perfect condition as always)!

Thank you so much. This is the first time we have used Thorndown paint and it certainly won’t be the last. The colours are great and the coverage is good. There’s no dreadful paint smell, they dry quickly and the brushes are easy to clean. What’s not to like.

Packing and delivery were very efficient too.
Jennifer Owen
We loved the paint. Fantastic. We’ve been recommending this to everyone who’s commented.

RAL-9005-Jet-Black Sundowner-HazelI just wanted to drop a line and say thank you for helping me to achieve the right colour for the interior of my greenhouse. The hazel colour of the table in the photo on your website was achieved by mixing it with the Orange you sent and am very pleased with the results now. The jet black on the outside is perfect with the rich colour on the inside.

Kind regards
Andrea Jackman

Thank you also for the speedy delivery!  Especially during these difficult times.

My partner and I absolutely love your paint, the colour is amazing and the coverage, finish and quality is the best we’ve ever used, seriously.  We have tried every paint under the sun, but will only be using your brand for everything moving forward.

Warm regards,

Thorndown-RAL-7016-Anthracite-Grey-Wood-Paint-c-o-Vintage-PaintThanks for the efficient delivery of the paint. I have used it this weekend on my allotment shed – was concerned in that it has previously been oiled but the product was a dream. Very impressed – performed well off the brush and the colour was exactly what I wanted – coverage and opacity is amazing – a joy to use!

The hands on experience has given me great enthusiasm for the product

Melanie Pursglove, The Vintage Paint Company

Thorndown-Anthracite-Grey-Wood-Paint-on-utility-door Thorndown-Anthracite-Grey-Wood-Paint-on-utility-door-RWHave just received from you a 2.5litre can of the above, to paint my Anthracite Composite door surround/Inset between my Kitchen/Garage which was 12mm Hardwood Ply in Beech before your super Paint was applied.

I am so pleased with the result; perfect match and finish. Paint Quality was superb and it applies so easily with no brush marks and dries very quickly.

I would definitely recommend your company to all my friends etc. Keep up the good work. Many Thanks

“I found it really nice to use – it goes on well and spreads evenly, giving good coverage which is not being too thin or thick. And it was also really forgiving when working on wood that is rough or thirsty like parts of my fence. It dries fast which is great when working outside, but not so fast that you have to dilute the bottom of the tin (!).

So all in all I got the impression of a quality product, and I approve of the sustainable ethos, too.”

Naomi Slade, Garden Journalist, Author, Designer & Consultant




We used Thorndown paints which were so easy to apply, excellent quality and superb customer service. Given we only live down the road, they even delivered them on their way home. I thoroughly recommend them’.

Wildlife-Den-in-Bilberry-Blue-&-Dulcote-Stone“It’s been really fun selecting colours from the Thorndown wood paint range for our nursery development projects. As an eco-conscious business, it’s great to be able to use a range of paints that not only offer high-performance, but they’re also friendly on the environment and an absolute pleasure to use, as well as offering a beautiful variety of colours.”

Great coverage. Great colour. Great finish.

Kim von Coels, The Krumble Empire



APC couriers have just delivered the paint before I left for work. 

First class service, thank you!


‘One coat was perfect, and great colours’

Ben Chandler, Creative Director FARLAM & CHANDLER

“Thorndown Paints are now our preferred Paint Suppliers…. we as a company  offer our customers a unique ‘in-house’ painting service for garden sheds and summerhouses. To achieve the quality of finish that is acceptable we now use and recommend Thorndown Paints.  The range of colours is extensive from subtle pastel shades to bright vibrant colours. Coverage is superb and the finish on planed timber is second to none, the finished surfaces have a very pleasing semi-gloss texture which gives a highly professional finish on the products painted (Spray or Brush application). We have no hesitation in recommending Thorndown Paint Products.” 

Stuart, Taunton Sheds



Wow your paint is stunning! I’m not the best at painting and I get bored but I so loved using your paint, it’s really really lovely.

Annie Legge


Great quality paints in a large range of colours. Perfect consistency for HVLP spraying or handpainting, with excellent coverage and rich finish from two coats. Ben and Caroline are always happy to help and offer advice, and often deliver next day.

The Bike Shed Company



Here are a couple of pictures of the window. It’s looking just as good as when it was painted a year ago.
If anything I think it’s retained it’s colour/finish a bit better than the Superdeck.
