Sangue de Boeuf "Millennia ago bull’s blood would literally have been used to colour distempers and limewashes. The same effect can be got with a mixture of red oxide and yellow ochre and my mixture gives a browny red tone that is calm but serious and makes a room a statement." #EdwardBulmer #NaturalPaint

BENJAMIN MOORE SILVERY BLUE 1647: "In a sitting room, we used this very light French blue on the walls, with white trim. It's not a baby blue or a sky blue. There's more gray in it. It's a sophisticated twist on a fresh blue and makes a great background for spring colors like yellow and purple or even Chinese red." -RICHARD RIDGE
Quaker "Earth pigments mixed with white were used to make Quaker tints in the early 19th century. Basically they were coloured off-whites. I have made 50/50 raw umber and yellow ochre shade with a hint of chrome yellow to give it a sunny disposition. A great hall colour and can be used on woodwork to compliment strong colours. Equally at home on wood or plaster." #EdwardBulmer #NaturalPaint
Brick "We have been firing clay to make bricks in this country for a very long time and we are used to seeing them mellowed with age. The soft red that the bricks age to is the colour we have used as the prompt for this shade. A great colour to eat to!" #EdwardBulmer #NaturalPaint
2003 Pointing Named after the colour of lime pointing used in traditional brickwork. White Light Tones Undercoat.
Clove "The spicy warmth a clove gives to mulled wine is the warmth it has as a colour too. While still being a deep beige the earthy red oxide in the mix really wraps the colour round a space. I have seen it looking stunning on the walls of an elegant top lit staircase as well as on the joinery of a traditional kitchen." #EdwardBulmer #NaturalPaint
London Brown "Here is our dark chocolate if you like. Just red oxide and black as all the old recipes would have it. We have given it a capital name for a serious metropolitan colour for those with the acquired taste." #EdwardBulmer #NaturalPaint
