Light Olive Green - Natural Paint Colour | Edward Bulmer Natural Paint

Light Olive Green

Early recipes for olive green seem to have been a browny hue but by the C19th the addition of Prussian blue meant that it was a full green close to the colour of a plump Mediterranean olive. Too dark and the colour tends to black when in the shade, so I have kept it a strong mid tone. It can be a great woodwork colour and is also robust enough for exterior use.

‘My father warned me away from using Natural Paints, as he felt they were unreliable (he was a Painter and Decorator 20 yrs ago!). However when I started to paint the emulsion on I realised he was wrong and so got him in to have a go too! He was really pleasantly surprised, and agreed that it went on easily and evenly and produced a lovely colour. The best thing for me was that I had people stopping in the room the night after, and they had no idea it was freshly painted – not a hint of a smell.’
