The legendary source of Indigo gave it its name – literally ‘Indian’. The leaves of trees from the Indigofera family, prevalent there, could be fermented to produce a beautiful dye as well as A pigment. Nowadays we use mineral pigments for their superior lightfastness but this evocative colour PROPERLY earns its presence in a well judged colour range. Traditionally oil paints were used to decorate with deep colours as they could ‘manage’ the piment loading. Today our taste for a matt finish means we embrace the powdery rather than shiny look you get from rendering these colours in emulsion and this colour takes on a wonderful velvety feel.
"There are three reasons I chose Edward Bulmer Natural Paint. First and foremost the fantastic range of colours, from the historically authentic to the more contemporary, meant that there was something fitting for every room in my cottage. Secondly, the paint’s true 'green' credentials were important and led onto the third benefit that painters like working with it."
