    Please pass this comment to Jocasta Innes.

    We decorated the walls of a room with a ‘Paint Magic’ non-absorbent Matt Emulsion 10 years ago. It’s still looking good today!

    Please will you pass this comment onto Jocasta Innes as we have discovered something quite extraordinary about this paint.

    We had to refill some holes in a wall and were reluctantly going to repaint the whole room with a different brand paint, as ‘Paint Magic’ is no longer available.
    We discovered we still had some of the original paint in storage so we decided to try and patch over the filled areas with this and see what it looked like.
    The newly painted areas look IDENTICAL to the original wall colour.
    INCREDIBLE!…how can such a colour match with the same ‘chalky finish be made 10years on?
    What an amazing paint, totally unique. Thankyou Jocasta.
