Colour Card

The Earthborn Classic range colour chart has samples of the Claypaint for the swatches. This is not a mass produced colour chart but a high quality accurate selection of colour swatches in the Claypaint finish. The sheen levels will be different (and therefore colours may look slightly different) for the Eggshell finish. There are swatches in white to show that difference on the last page of the colour chart.

We are happy to send you a free colour card with free delivery to UK addresses. We aim to post it to you within 1 working day. Please contact us to request a colour card.

Complete the Look


The 72 colours in the Earthborn Eggshell range are also available in wall paints; Earthborn Claypaint and Lifestyle emulsion.


You can paint the Earthborn wallpaints on the ceiling. However, if you are looking for something that is slightly more economical, see the Earthborn Ecopro Matt Emulsion (minimum size 5L).

If you are going to paint your ceiling white, it is worth considering one of the air purifying paints which work with sunlight (or sunlight/daylight bulbs) to neutralise noxious gases and odours in the room.
