The perfect paint for walls and ceilings. This is the paint that everyone is talking about - Pammastic. Goes on easily. Needs no undercoat. Dries in an hour or so with a velvet matt finish...

Still have a empty 2 gallon can in my shed that my father retained from his days as a painter & decorator in South Australia in the 1950's.

My first job was for a rural based builder in 1964.
I remember Blundell's pammastic paint very well and if I remember correctly it came in 1 gallon tins.
Quite frequently it was called "colourwash".My employer believed in getting value for money and would never use the paint without "watering it down."
I well remember on one occasion, him complaining that it took five coats of "Blundell's pammastic" to cover fresh plastered walls; even at the age of fifteen, I thought to myself " well, if you hadn't watered down so much, it wouldn't have taken five coats" but of course, I and everybody else would have never said so.
Happy memories (mostly)
