Interior Distemper

Porter's Interior Distemper is one of the simplest and most traditional interior paints. Distemper is a superbly creamy paint that dries to a velvet-like finish with very subtle tone variations. Based on an original recipe that uses powdered chalk, pigments and binders. As well as lending itself to modern interiors, Distemper is widely used in the restoration of heritage and trust houses, giving them back their original elegance and stylish simplicity. Distemper Paste can be added to create subtle variations in colour and a more 'aged' finish.
