Have you ever heard of diamond collection paint?


I found 5 gallons of "diamond collection" paint in a Habitat for Humanity Restore for cheap, so I bought it. Then I realized that I have no idea where this stuff is actually sold and maybe I should do some research before I put it on my walls, in case it is terrible. I cannot figure out where it came from or where it is sold based on google searches, which is bizarre in this day and age.

Does anyone have any experience with this brand of paint? I'm ok with having just made a donation to Habitat for Humanity if I shouldn't use it, LOL!

No brand name on the bucket?

I believe GDB International, Inc. owns the trademark. http://www.gdbinternational.com

Looks like they specialize in mistint paint.

GDB handles approximately three million gallons of customer returned mistint paint each year. This mistint paint comes from several U.S. paint manufacturers and is shipped to our warehouses in Nashville, Illinois and Phoenix, Arizona.

When the mistint paint arrives at our facility we carefully sort each and every can of mistint paint by size and whether it is oil or latex. The cans are then re-palletized into standard size pallets and shrink wrapped for future shipment. We do not sort by color so the pallets are a true mix of assorted colors including whites and shades of white.

Clearly I am a big dummy but umm... what does this all mean? Do they just blend all the mistinted paint they get into new paint? Does it mean there's not going to be any one quality standard?

Dulux Diamond is manufactured by Akzo Nobel, not by this company.

Hi All - Mistints is just one type of paint that GDB International sells. Diamond Collection brand paint is not mistint paint. GDB never uses that label on their mistint paint and mistints are all exported - it is a premium quality latex paint that is made in the USA.

Zimar, How did it work? I am considering painting with the Diamond Collection: Interior Grey that I found at HH as well.

Hi, we bought Diamond Collection primer and it was great to work with. We covered a huge room 25'x 12 and a large hallway, that was painted a deep burgundy, with less than a five gallon container. Went on very easy. I would highly recommend this paint. Kilz would have cost over $120. I paid $40.00 at HH.

I just bought 3 of the 5 gallon buckets. Two for the exterior siding, which are a neutral color, and they look good. The 3rd was my trim paint, and the color that it mixed to is nothing like the color I wanted. I wanted taupe, and I got more of a purple - YUK! We were warned at SW that may happen.
