Yes, our natural paint is made from naturally occurring ingredients.

Make sure the radiator is switched off during painting and drying stages. For further information, please click here. Can I use your paints on flooring? We would not advise using any of our paints on any flooring. Whilst our natural Water Based Eggshell is suitable for indoor woodwork and metal it is not the right paint for floors. Edward Bulmer Natural Paint - Period Properties Are Edward Bulmer Natural Paints suitable for period properties? Our natural paints are suitable for all property types and we are proud to have our paints in a real variety of properties, click here to find out more about the different period properties and which colours are particularly suitable. Our paints do not contain any plastic and so they are not film forming and so they are perfect for use in old and historic buildings as they are breathable. We do however pride our natural paints on being universally used for period buildings due to their physical and technical features – after all, that is how our Founder Edward Bulmer came to create a natural paint brand. Edward has spent the last 30 years working in some of Britain’s finest buildings. He is a leading interior designer, architectural historian and ‘colourman’, renowned for restoring our heritage buildings, bringing his expert knowledge to conservation and his design flair to the creation of new spaces for modern living. For more information, click here. How did you come up with the colour names for Edward Bulmer Natural Paints? Our founder Edward Bulmer, leading interior designer, architectural historian and ‘colourman’ created all the colour names and descriptions for our 102 natural colours. He has taken the names from old colour books and modern observations. Sometimes they are a bit esoteric like Drab Green and Cuisse de Nymphe Emue, but still beautiful colours and very popular. Edward is a master in both the art and science of colour, an expert with a mission to revive the world of natural colour. He also has that technical knowhow to translate historic reference into paint shades perfectly tuned for fashionable modern living. Unlike virtually all other paints on the market, our colours are designed, made and mixed by an expert in interiors. Click here to find out more. Is Lime Plaster suitable with Edward Bulmer Natural Paints? Yes, our natural paint loves lime plaster! For more information, please click here. Can Edward Bulmer Natural Paint be applied to lime plaster, lime wash or lime rendered walls? We recommend using our emulsion on interior lime plaster and lime render because unlike most other paints, it does not reduce the breathability. Like all our finishes, our Emulsion allows the walls to breathe and offers a viable alternative to lime wash. A few simple steps should be taken before applying Edward Bulmer Natural Paint Emulsion to any lime surface: Lime render or plaster needs to be fully cured before painting. The best person to advise you is your lime provider, however as a general guide allow at least 1 month curing for every 5mm of thickness. In poor drying conditions this time period may be extended. Before painting make sure the surface is stable (not flaky or powdery). When painting onto cured new interior lime plaster use our Natural Plaster Primer to prepare the walls for Natural Emulsion. If you do not prime the plaster, the paint will be sucked into the room as there is no plastic in our emulsion and it is not film forming. For more information, please click here. Edward Bulmer Natural Paint - Technical Do you have technical data sheets available? Yes, technical data sheets are available to view and download here. For further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org Edward Bulmer Natural Paint is wipeable but not scrubable; what does this mean? Our natural emulsion is a wipeable paint with class 2/3 abrasion rating. This means it will withstand wiping with a soft cloth using warm, soapy water. We do not recommend the use of bleached products, Cif or any abrasive products. They may mark the paint. Pencil and biro is very difficult to remove. Some tough stains may be ingrained into the surface therefore more difficult to remove. Our Water Based Eggshell and Water Based Gloss paints are very easy to wipe clean and will withstand quite a lot of pressure. Modern acrylic paints boast about how wipeable they are. There is a trade off. If you want completely bomb proof paint then you have to stuff it full of plastic. Paint is already made from plastic, scrubble paint contains even more. So what price wipeability to our health and the continued depletion of the planet’s resources both to make the plastic and then to dispose of it! I have recently painted my room with Edward Bulmer Natural Paint however, on some of the walls the paint does not appear to be drying properly and looks very patchy? All Edward Bulmer Natural Paints are water based and are absorbed into the surface of the wall rather than forming a cling film surface which is the case with modern acrylic paints. So if the surface is uneven then the paint will be absorbed differently and then can cause patchiness. We recommend that you use our Plaster Primer or Grip Coat Primer to ensure that the wall is correctly prepared. If there is any damp in your walls or if the plaster is not dry then the paint will be sucked in and will look patchy. In this way our paint is usefully diagnostic, it will not simply hide signs of damp. Alternatively, it could be that you/your decorator is using an acrylic-based primer which does not always work well when our paints are applied on top – being a natural-based product. We personally recommend using our Plaster Primer/Grip Coat Primer depending on the finish. My Edward Bulmer Natural Paint Water Based Eggshell is hard to apply and is not giving good coverage? Many existing gloss paints are oil based and these will be difficult to cover with a water-based paint such as our Edward Bulmer Natural Paint, as described above. Generally, the oil-based paint should be rubbed down with a fine sand paper and then thoroughly cleaned with sugar soap or white spirit prior to applying our Water Based Eggshell. If the application of the paint continues to be difficult then it may be necessary to apply our Water Based Eggshell Primer. On some areas of the walls, where Edward Bulmer Natural Paint has been applied, the paint appears to be flaking away? Preparation is key – if existing painted surfaces have not been prepared properly by removing loose or flaking paint then this will not provide a stable background for the new paint. Alternatively, the problem could be associated with walls that have been covered by a filler to hide imperfections within the wall’s surface. Some fillers can be very porous and can cause the paint to shrink as moisture is rapidly drawn away from the paint. Prior to applying the paint, ensure any fillers are completely dust free and dry. Spot prime the filler with a well diluted mix of the paint and water (up to 25% thinning). Do not apply thick layers of paint which are more likely to shrink. Should I seal knots prior to painting with Water Based Eggshell or Gloss? Bleeding knots on bare woods should be pre-treated with our Water Based Eggshell Primer. Bare wood may be primed, if desired, with a first coat diluted with 5% water. Before applying top coats, allow all primer to dry thoroughly, then sand lightly and remove any dust. Previously painted wood should be sanded thoroughly and cleaned off before applying at least 2 top coats.

Edward Bulmer Natural Paint - Environment What makes Edward Bulmer Natural Paint healthy? When you decide to use natural paint, you are making more than a colour choice, a paint choice, a fashion choice or even a lifestyle choice – you too are choosing to make a difference. Thank you. As we make the amazing transition towards a carbon free environment and take on the responsibility of protecting nature’s biodiversity there will be inevitable ‘Greenwashing’ in every industry and the paint industry is no exception. Every sensible company is getting onto the bandwagon of doing everything, making everything and selling everything that is ‘eco friendly’, ‘sustainable’ , ‘environmentally friendly’, ‘carbon neutral’, ‘vegan’, ‘organic’, ‘ethical’. The paint industry has adopted all these prefixes and more, declaring that their paint is ‘water-based’, ‘low VOC’, ‘no VOC’, VOC free’. Yet in many instances, nothing has changed except to make these claims louder and clearer and those with the biggest budgets are well heard and nobody questions their slogans. We believe that is not about what you say that makes a company sustainable it is what you actually do and so for us it is all about how paint is made, what raw materials it contains and what impact it has on our buildings, our health, our nature and our planet. For more information, please click here Is Edward Bulmer Natural Paint vegan and animal cruelty free? Yes, our paints have no animal derived products in them. Neither we nor any of our suppliers perform animal testing. Our paints are completely natural and we declare all our ingredients, see more here. For more information, please click here for our product technical data sheets. What are VOC’s? Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are gases emitted from certain solids or liquids that have a negative effect on our indoor air quality. They come from the chemicals in paint, which are a necessary part of the recipe to preserve and stabilise the paint. There is no such thing as VOC free. When you mow the grass, cook eggs and bacon you create a VOC. However, they are not harmful unless you happen to have hay fever! A label that reads “Zero-VOC,” does not mean that the paint does not contain VOCs, it just means that the level of VOCs in the paint falls below the government regulated amount permissible. Adding colour pigment to Zero VOC paint can increase the amount of volatile organic compounds as much as 10 grams per litre – some companies are very clever in doing this without anyone challenging them. Do you have VOC’s in Edward Bulmer Natural Paint? We are proud to declare our natural paint is virtually VOC free, containing less than 1g/l which is 0.07%. For further information on the technical and physical features of our paint, please click here to find the necessary technical data sheet. There is no such thing as VOC free.

Edward Bulmer Natural Paints and Breathability When we talk about paint breathability, we are referring to how much air and water vapour can easily flow through the surface. Using paint with a high level of breathability, coupled with breathable building materials means that moisture does not become ‘trapped’ beneath the surface of the paint. Our breathable paint will allow the natural moisture that is in the walls and atmosphere to flow through without damaging the building. Breathability is especially important in period properties and lime plastered properties. For more information, please click here. Our natural paints have a SD (Steam Diffusion) value, which is a German method for measuring breathability. For a paint to be classes as breathable, it should have an SD value of 1 or lower, the lower the value the more breathable the paint. Edward Bulmer Natural Paint Emulsion SD value – 0.1m Edward Bulmer Natural Paint Water Based Eggshell SD value – 0.3m Edward Bulmer Natural Paint Water Based Gloss SD value – 0.3m *Even if your property has not been built with breathable materials like lime, using a breathable paint can still provide to a healthier environment. Are Edward Bulmer Natural Paints microporous? Yes – the term ‘microporous’ describes a coating that acts as a barrier to liquid water, but allows water vapour to pass through. One way to avoid damp in a building is to use breathable building materials, such as lime render or plaster, followed by our breathable, natural paints containing microporous. Any paints that contain vinyl, acrylics, oils or plastics are not breathable and can trap moisture beneath the surface, causing mould build up or even blowing the paint off completely. Are Edward Bulmer Natural Paints hygroscopic? Hygroscopic refers to a substance’s ability to absorb moisture from its surroundings. Being highly breathable, Edward Bulmer Natural Paint is a hygroscopic paint that will ‘even out’ the humidity in a room by absorbing excess moisture. It is especially suitable for period properties and rooms that have suffered with damp, as it lets the walls breathe. Being hygroscopic, the surface of Edward Bulmer Natural Paints will change and the colour may deepen where it has absorbed moisture. When allowed to dry out naturally these marks should disappear, although in some cases, for example if there are salts in the walls, staining may occur. Are Edward Bulmer Natural Paint tins recyclable? Our paint tins are made from stainless steel, which is infinitely recyclable. You can recycle empty tins at your local Household Waste Centre. Our paint is truly natural in all its forms so leftover paint may be composted when dry. Liquid waste should not be washed down the drain and should be disposed of according to the liquid residues EWC Code 080120. For more information, please click here.
