Victory Colours Matt Emulsion, Cockleshell No. 3
Suitable for interior walls and ceilings throughout the home giving an excellent finish. Virtually VOC free, durable, colourfast & washable paints in a beautiful range of colours.
Colour: A neutral, pale yellow
Cockleshell No. 3 is a classic neutral, pale yellow paint. This popular shade of white paint has hints of pale pink and yellow. Cockleshell is a fresh and modern alternative to the eternally popular Magnolia. This versatile colour complements most colours in the Victory Colours range.
Mr Victory is a retired Royal Marine, so we decided to name this colour after the Cockleshell Heroes, who carried a successful, daring raid of Nazi-occupied Bordeaux in December 1942, as part of ‘Operation Frankton’.

Left over paints are rarely wasted. In the studio, any paints which are off-colour are retinted and then reused. They are also donated to community projects, passed on to friends and family or used for upcycling projects. At the end of its life cycle, the paint tin can also be re-used or recycled at your local recycling centre.
1. Stir all paints before use.
2. Surfaces must be clean, dry and sound. If not they should be sanded and appropriately prepared. Bare plaster and other porous surfaces should be sealed by using a paint diluted using 25% additional water.
3. Being a water-based product it is best to protect the opened wet paint from airborne and surface bacteria . To avoid spoilage it is best to decant the paint into a paint tray or paint kettle and not to place the brush or roller directly into the paint tin, unless you intend to use it all at one time. Also avoid putting unused paint back into the paint tin as this will introduce unwanted bacteria into the paint and potentially cause spoilage of the product.
4. Victory Colours paint has great opacity so often only one coat will suffice. Occasionally a second coat will be required to produce a flawless finish.
5. The paint will be touch dry in 2 hours but we recommend waiting 4 hours to re-coat, ensuring that the surface is completely dry, under normal environmental conditions.
6. Clean brushes and rollers with warm soapy water after use.
