Little Greene Paint Co - Blue Collection.
Ultra Blue (Limited Edition) - No. 264. The jewel in this paint collection, Little Greene makes this limited edition colour in small batches using a single pigment: Ultramarine. Originally extracted from Lapis Lazuli by the Venetians in the 14th century, and having a value greater than gold, this pigment was, until c1520, exclusively reserved for the depiction of the robes of the Virgin Mary. This limited edition colour is no ordinary paint and requires a special application procedure to achieve its true depth – please read the following advice before painting.
This is a limited edition - contact us to check stocks before placing order.
- Firstly, ensure that you have received both the Ultra Blue™ Basecoat and Topcoat before you begin.
- The secret to the profound depth of Ultra Blue™ is in its translucent topcoat. Made using a single pigment – ultramarine, this almost transparent coating reacts in a unique way when applied over its opaque basecoat.
- Apply one coat of the Basecoat by brush or roller - it will appear quite light on application, so don’t worry that it doesn’t look like your desired colour yet.
- Follow this with two or even three coats of Ultra Blue™ Topcoat – the intensity will build with each layer.
At the moment, we are still open and shipping Farrow and Ball, Little Greene, Zoffany and Sanderson online paint orders.
In such unusual circumstances that are changing daily, and with high volumes of orders at the moment, we are ensuring our warehouse and production team is working safely with social distancing measures, as are our couriers, all of which mean our lead times are extended way beyond our standard service.
There are many reasons why the lead times have changed, including volume, safety and health considerations for our team members in production and despatch, the capacity of our carriers and their safety, and the effect of sickness on staffing levels - all of which are very fluid and changing rapidly at the moment in such unusual times. We are constantly updating our website to inform of any changes.
Thanks for all your support from Paint Depot.
