Sally Lister Why Use Edward Bulmer Natural Paint For Your Colour Choice? Go Back To Basics We only use natural pigments 12 in total – so there is actually a limit to the colours we can make. Some of our natural pigments cost over £300 per litre, so we use these sparingly and just where needed! We know that other paint companies have endless different colour charts and hundreds of colours which they can make using the vast spectrum of chemical dyes, however isn’t this overwhelming? You will find at our range covers every base and what is more, it is impossible to copy our paint colours with synthetic paints made from azo dyes, they will not have the sophistication and nuance of a surface painted in colours made from natural earth and mineral pigments combined with a non plastic base coat. If you want to know more about the natural earth and mineral pigments we use click HERE for a full ingredients list. We are creatives and colour experts Edward is an artist and so he knows about colour and how to mix it but he is also an interior designer and so he knows what colours will work in your home. He understands the crucial importance of tonality, get the tone right and the colour will follow. Farrow & Ball bought good taste to the paint market and it is here to stay. Now you can have good taste and quality natural paints which are durable, easy to apply and quick drying. Plus some guidance from the colour experts. We only use non plastic binders When we make our paint we don’t only think about the colour, the finish is crucial. No plastic paint gives that soft, nuanced finish you get from natural paints. The combination of natural pigment and plant based binders means the coloured surface is far gentler on the eye as well as the paint being less polluting.

We hand paint the colour chips in every chart to ensure you have an accurate representation of each colour. Please fill in your details and we’ll post your chosen colour chart to you. Hand Painted Fan Deck We get a fantastic response to our hand painted fan deck. It gives you more colour than the chip but is still small enough for the handbag! It is a very handy aid for the design professional or a keen amateur with a large job. We give a short description of each colour and a historical paint key if you have a period home and want to follow historic precedent. We have designed the hand painted fan deck so you can pull out complimentary colours and compare shades in one colour. Hand Painted A5 Colour Box The hand painted A5 colour box is aimed at design professionals who are putting together schemes for clients. The A5 sheets can be used on site alongside fabrics and furnishings to achieve the best possible interior design scheme for your client. We have hand painted all our 102 colours on A5 sheets, together with all the technical sheets for our finishes, put together in a gorgeous linen bound box. Similarly to our hand painted fan deck, on the back of each sheet is a description of each colour and also a historical key outlining which colour is suitable for each era of architecture.
