I needed to buy some paint from a Dulux Decorator Centre today. The two ladies working in there were very pleasant and very helpful. I would like to use DDC more but a) they are a 40-minute round trip away and b) their prices are about 12% higher than my local Buildbase, even with my "cash account discount":

5 ltrs DT Vinyl Silk - £50.78 from DDC, £45.23 from Buildbase
2.5 ltrs DT Vinyl Silk - £30.46 from DDC, £27.30 from Buildbase

On a plus note, I have been using DT oil-based undercoat this week for the first time in ages and it seems much better than it used to be. Very high opacity (painted on to very yellowed woodwork that hasn't been painted in 20+ years) and full dry the next morning.

I expected you to say that it had noticeably yellowed by the next morning... :hiding:
