About Natural Pigments

The Best Way to draw. paint. create. last.

Based in northern California, Natural Pigments manufactures and distributes rare and hard-to-find materials for fine artists and decorators. We specialize in supplying artists' materials that were used in historical painting since prehistoric times up to and including the nineteenth century.

Who We Are

We constantly search for materials and products of the finest quality so that we can bring them direct to you from the source. To do so, we travel the world to find materials specifically for use by professional artists and decorators. We obtain minerals from mines in Afghanistan, Chile, Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, to name a few places, processing these into natural pigments. We purchase resins, gums and plants from around the globe to make natural varnishes and painting mediums.

Our mission is to provide the largest variety of natural pigments, paints and other professional artists' supplies, enabling us to bring you a selection that makes shopping for rare and hard-to-find art materials easy. Our objective is to promote the education and use of these materials among artists by providing detailed information for their employment in casein, encaustic, fresco, oil, watercolor and tempera painting. All products are manufactured in the United States of America.
