Hi,

I love the blue color of Jodhpur and have been searching for the international color code of the paint but I can't find it anywhere. Can anyone help me?

Thanks!

I donlt believ tall the houses are the same shade of blue (I looked at some photos). the color probably comes from a bluing agent that is added to white wash.

100 per cent correct.
The white wash is made from lime and water (it makes the water boiling hot initially) and a blue agent is mixed to this. It is more eye estimation and experience with which they decide on the precise proportion than any scientific and established benchmark but of course they have some rule of thumb.
