Porter's Interior Distemper is one of the simplest, most traditional interior paints.

Distemper is a superbly creamy chalk based paint that dries to a velvet-like finish with a beautifully subtle natural colour variation.

Distemper is widely used in the restoration of heritage and trust houses, giving them back their original elegance and stylish simplicity.

If required, can be over-coated with Matt Wall Sealer for extra protection, and to create a wipeable finish.
