Mummy | Edward Bulmer Paint

Mummy

From frankly unpalatable beginnings Mummy became a recognised term (even mentioned by Shakespeare) for an old brown. As you might guess, it described the appearance of mummified remains and indeed was made from them until the late C19th when it became deeply unfashionable. Now that it would be unthinkable to create a colour in this way I feel at liberty to use it for a colour that is rightly fashionable again!

‘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.’
