Exterior Emulsion


High quality smooth exterior quality emulsion paint. (For exterior use only) Artists quality earth and traditional powder pigments provide matchless purity and quality of colour with subtle variations of colour and tone. It is a paint with low permeability, and it is therefore not normally appropriate for the decoration of traditional buildings with solid walls that need to ‘breathe’.

Environmental Considerations: 

Contains no added lead. Water-based. Actual VOC content <5g/l. 2010 EU limit 40g/litre. This product contains a fungicide to help inhibit mould and algae growth. All Rose of Jericho paints comply with the latest environmental legislation.


To be used for the exterior decoration of dry cement renders, pebble-dash, and modern building materials. Porous surfaces may need priming with a stabilising solution or a coat of exterior emulsion thinned with up to 15% clean water prior to the application of further coats.


Exterior emulsion is available in all colours.

Colour Charts


Matt finish with subtle variations in colour and tone. All Rose of Jericho paints are made using powder pigments. Colour and tone variations due to these pigments and differing porosity of surfaces are inevitable. The intention is that our Exterior emulsion paint possesses some of the lack of uniformity and charm of a traditional limewash finish.


2.5 and 5 litre tins. Direct from Rose of Jericho. All paints are mixed to order.
