The Shop

After 16 years in London, Colour Makes People Happy has now moved its independent shop to Lewes, East Sussex.

We are still making friendly paint for your home in our unique way using ingredients from the South Downs including linseed oil, chalk and alabaster.

We continue to offer our consultation services, and the spin machine is back in action so you can make your own works of art.

There will be many more exciting things to come.

Online Shop Coming Soon

Standard Paint

A high quality paint for inside and outside produced by us, not for us. It is made with expensive resins and pure ground pigment. Most of our colours come in a variety of finishes including for wood, metal, plaster, lime plaster and bare timber.


The Paint Bar

If you would like to make your own colour, visit the paint bar where using your choice of pigments and ingredients you can create your own colour and name it.


Sustainability

A major factor in assessing the true cost to the environment of any paint is durability of finish. The cost of using our paint can be signicantly less than conventional ones, because our products last longer.


WE BELIEVE IN BUYING WELL AND CONSUMING LESS

Manifesto

COLOUR IS EVERYWHERE.

IT IS NEVER SEEN IN ISOLATION.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A COLOUR FROM THE PAST, OR FROM THE FUTURE.

PURGE THE WORLD OF SAPPY CREDULOUSNESS. BELIEVE IN SHOPS, NOT GALLERIES.

CHOOSE THE COLOUR YOU LIKE.

DON’T LISTEN TO ANYONE ELSE, INCLUDING ME.

TASTE IS SIMPLY CONFIDENT DECISION-MAKING.

BOLDNESS IS A PERSONAL MEASURE.

IT DOES NOT MEAN BRIGHT OR STARTLING. IT MEANS DOING WHAT YOU WANT TO.

BE BOLD.

Instructions

Coverage

In most cases 1 litre will paint approximately 9 sqm with one coat.


Application

We always suggest using a brush but totally understand that this can take a little longer. If a roller is used, use a short nap roller, unless you want an orange peel finish.

The temperature of the surface needs to be at least 5 degrees Celsius. Do not use the product when surrounding temperature is below 10 degrees Celsius or humidity higher than 80%.Temperatures during application rising above 25 degrees Celsius can affect the shine, adhesion and levelling.
