Sherwin Williams Cashmere


I've been using Sherwin Williams Cashmere all week on some primed plaster walls. Just going to say it's some of the best paint I've used. I went with the low luster finish, which probably sits in between eggshell and semi-gloss.

Anyone else have a chance to use it?

Too expensive for my crowd. What was the $/gallon this week?

(I'm fine with Duration, and that's costly enough.)

I'm pretty sure Duration was more expensive. But my cost was $35 per gallon.

Cashmere is a great product, but i rarely use it. My go to paint is Duration matt, Superpaint velvet if a more economical paint is needed.

SW took yet another price bump Oct 1, including Duration, at least where I'm at. So now is a great time to talk to them about getting a better price schedule!

Yet another price hike for SW coming soon. I know they did give a preferred pricing on one product that you choose. I use it on Superpaint and that is my go to economical priced paint if I don't go with Duration.
On larger jobs SW reps will work with you on reduced pricing for larger quantities.

While some local store managers will and some won't.

I had the opportunity to use the product for the first time and have to agree it was some pretty good stuff. Although it seemed to get thick pretty quick in the cut bucket, I still think it's pretty good. A little high dollar for most jobs tho.

Re: Sherwin Williams Cashmere


The technical documents say it goes on "buttery-smooth." I guess SW's tech writers couldn't think of another description.

But we've used it plenty of times and agree that it's a very nice product. Although it appears to have more sheen than advertised.
