Eggshell paint

  • Thread starter deanibusmaximus

Hi all! I'm working on a modern new build, and I've been asked to paint some internal metal supports (currently grey) to match the finish on the window frames. They are white, so colour isn't so critical.
The sheen level is the important thing. The sheen on the window frames is very low indeed, so what I'm looking for is the lowest sheen eggshell available, as many so-called eggshell finishes are way too shiny for this job.
Please, does anyone have an opinion or experience regarding which eggshell gives the flattest, lowest sheen?

Look for a Dead Flat oil based paint- various makes around - not used any though.
