    Used some Johnstones Leyland Vinyl Soft Sheen and it was horrendous stuff!
    Is all their stuff watery and poor opacity?

    I think you've used the retail version. It's ****. How much was it and where from?

    Customer got it, it was from an actual J&L trade store. She paid just under £90 for a total of 12.5L.
    I hated it!!! Ended up just going and buying some Dulux which covered in one coat as same colour.

    I frequently use Johnstones Covaplus white emulsion. IMO it covers better than Dulux and it's whiter too. And it's cheaper ;)

    Ninety pounds !
    Like apl, I also think covaplus is good emul but yours is a colour in V sheen.

    Only you  can tell us whether it's Trade or retail.
    Only you  can tell us whether it's  a mixed colour or off the shelf.

    I think it may be because its V Sheen.
    It was trade mixed, except for the white which was off the shelf (PBW)

    Ill give the covaplus a go sometime and make a decision after that as to if i like the brand or not. Good to have an alternative to Dulux though!

    Always found the Johnstones range to be top quality from coverplus, jonmat, through soft sheen to gloss, eggshell etc :)
