Zhoosh Paint FAQs

We sell sample paint patches (Real Paint Patches) instead of sample pots. This is a patch that’s already been painted with our water-based paint to give you a true indication of the colour's appearance once dry. The patches are adhesive, allowing you to test the colour out in various locations without painting directly on to the walls.
To test out your favourite colours on walls and other surfaces, order paint sample patches from our online store.

Our Real Paint Patches let you sample your favourite colours without painting directly onto the wall.
Each patch is pre-painted with our water-based paint to show what the colour will look like once dry. The patches are adhesive, but won’t leave any residue on the walls.
You can order paint sample patches online via our website.

Our woodwork paint works best on surfaces that have been primed, as the primer covers any imperfections in the wood. You can buy white primer paint from our online store.

Yes, our woodwork paint is now also suitable for interior metalwork like radiators.

A 2.5l tin of Zhoosh paint should be enough for one coat covering an area of 25-35 square metres. The 750ml tins should cover an area of 7.5-10.5 square metres.
If you’re unsure how much paint to buy, feel free to get in touch and our team will be happy to help. You can also return any unused paint as long as the tins are unopened and returned within the 30-day returns window.

You should always wait for paint to fully dry between coats to prevent streaks, peeling and colour imbalances.
Our paint is designed to be touch dry after two hours, but we’d recommend waiting four hours to apply your next coat.

We’d recommend doing two coats of paint, with the second applied after four hours. Remember to factor in multiple coats of paint when choosing how many tins to buy.

We recommend using a good quality synthetic brush for all our paints, or a good quality short or medium pile roller. You don’t need to use a specific type of brush for our different types of paint.

Our paints are safer than traditional paints because they are water-based and have a very low VOC content. However, even zero-VOC paints can emit chemical fumes, so we still recommend you keep the room well ventilated when painting.

You can use our paint for walls, ceilings, woodwork and metalwork (our woodwork paint is suitable for internal woodwork and metalwork).

Our woodwork paint is designed for all interior woodwork, including cupboards, shelves, skirting boards, panels, banisters, door frames, coving and furniture.
It’s hard-wearing and gives woodwork a wonderful matt finish, making it great for hiding the imperfections you might get from restoring old woodwork.

Our paint will last for years, so leftover paint can be resealed and either donated or stored for a future project.
Alternatively, you can decant the paint into a cardboard container to dry, then take it to your local recycling centre. Most recycling facilities can’t take liquid paint, but will often accept it once it’s hardened. Remember to check your local council’s recycling rules.
