Imagine my delight when I saw that we are soon to have a natural paint shop in town! (Where Wards used to be)
Just the job for the organic string and soya latte brigade, I reckon.
What do you think it's made of? Woad and cochineal beatles?

Natural paint is the stuff that doesn't hurt your lungs, the environment, and lets walls breathe causing less problems with damp etc. Great for all the conseravtion area former workers hovels - but expensive.

I think we all know that BB. We may just be small town hicks, but we do have schools here.

Best solution for damp is ventilation, not some poncey paint.

Still no where to buy reasonably priced mens clothes then??!! Helpful! Lets hope when the shop goes bust, which it will, they use natural whitewash on the shop window!

What is it made from then, BB? Is it just old-fashioned, non-vinyl paint given a new slant?

Is it not made from ethically sourced, organically grown nectar from a sustainable ethnically neutral flower colony living on a remote island off Wales, which is farmed by carbon neutral twine making LGBT aware midgets, who like nothing more than watching polar bears and penguins frolicking in the colourful meadows of life.

@ACT Haven't got clue what it's made from, how it's made and who makes it.
@HD I agree with you, the best solution for damp is ventilation.
@Chuck - I only answered the question that was posed, you don't need to put yourself down.

And the worse thing about it is that half the town will buy it just so they can say to their guests and neighbours "oh look at our natural paint"

The ingredients in natural paint are all natural, as opposed to being made with synthetic components or having chemical additives. These include:
* Water
* Plant oils, resins, and dyes
* Essential oils
* Minerals such as clay, chalk, and talcum
* Natural latex
* Milk protein
* Beeswax

Just to try and put a bit of restraint on the cynicism here; I understand that more painters and decorators die from skin cancer than any other trade. I take the view that:
- Anything which reduces our dependence on oil is a good thing;
- If you wouldn't be prepared to live next door to a factory making conventional paint, once you've seen what comes out of the chimneys, then you probably should avoid buying the stuff.
I used to live within a couple of miles of an ICI plant up north, and I wouldn't recommend the experience to anyone.
I've tried to persuade clients to agree to natural paint specs on school and hospital projects and I think they're beneficial. Of course, if people would prefer to churn out the usual DFL/mung-bean/organic tripe as an alternative to actually looking into something, that's up to them.

Can I remind you that oil is a natural product, It comes from the ground and mother nature made it .....
