Introduction to Farrow & Ball
WHAT’S IN A TIN?
1. We start by mixing chalk, china clay and titanium dioxide with water to create our base paint.
2. Next, we add rich pigments to achieve our signature depth of colour, carefully adding each in exactly the right amount for a complex and absorbing colour.
3. Every batch of our water based paint is then rigorously tested for colour consistency and durability before it even reaches the tin.
