claypaint-info.pngEarthborn Claypaint is a unique eco paint with a luxurious, ultra-matt finish for walls and ceilings. The beautiful range of traditional and contemporary colours are soothing and inspiring. Health and environmental benefits are unbeatable, too - Claypaint is virtually free of VOCs and other harmful emissions, odour free, totally oil free and highly breathable - a great paint for lime plaster, for traditional buildings, babies' nurseries and children's rooms. Being static resistant, Earthborn Claypaint reduces dust and allergen build-up, making it the ideal choice for asthma and allergy sufferers. It is also easy to apply and has great covering power.  Deliciously thick and creamy, it goes on like a dream and often requires fewer coats than conventional emulsions. All this and no horrible smells or emissions. With virtually no VOC's you can happily sleep in the same room that has been painted the same day. In July 2014, we hosted our first shabby chic furniture painting class using our beautiful Clay paint.

*Claypaint "White" has had its name changed to "White Clay". Earthborn paint now offer the White Clay colour in their Eggshell No.17 and Lifestyle paints so you can match the colour across the Classic Range.

Looking for a smaller tin than 2.5L for a small job? The Earthborn Eco Chic is available in 750ml tins, though marketed differently its the same lovely claypaint.

Not sure which colours? Take a look at our simple guide to choosing the right colour for you.

Due to the claypaint's high breathability, it has a very high moisture absorbency leaving it susceptible to damage when wet; so for kitchens & bathrooms in properties where breathability isn't the highest priority, you may wish to consider the Earthborn Lifestyle Emulsion a wipeable alternative available in the same range of colours.

If breathability is important but areas are required to be wipeable you may want to consider the Earthborn Wallglaze to finish over the claypaint.

Certified as being safe to use on children’s furniture and toys (carries the Safety of Toys Standard EN71-3:1995). When using on wood, you may wish to further protect toys with a furniture wax or furniture glaze.

Certified with a Class 0 Fire Safety Rating (BS476 part 6 and 7). Class 0 is the highest rating currently possible. The testing looks at the combustibility of the paint and its contribution to fire development and spread. This rating is particularly useful if you want a matt finish to ceiling woodwork for new builds.

We strongly recommend purchasing a tester pot if you are unsure of colour you require. The exact colours are easier to see at larger scales with your particular lighting, wall texture and painting technique! We also offer free colour cards delivered to mainland UK.
