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!

“When we moved into Hopetoun we were really keen to find colours that worked for our young family and the house. Your colours did this well and the paint was especially suitable as it is so breathable. The decorators loved the paint and said it was the best to apply they had used and no horrid paint smell was a real bonus for us! We have had to repaint all the rooms where we didn't use your paints but none of the rooms where we used them.”
