Kit for dispersing pigments in any binder to make paint. Here are all the tools you need and a sample set of six natural mineral and earth pigments to begin grinding and dispersing pigments in your favorite paint medium.

The Natural Pigments Basic Paint-Making Kit is intended for artists who want to expand their painting horizons, but have little or no experience making their own paints. The kit comes with all the materials that you need to get started, including instructions, glass muller, grinding surface and six traditional pigments in dry powder form to start making your own paint.

It is an excellent introduction to paint making, which can open the door to a new range of possibilities in different mediums, pigments and paint recipes.

Pigments Included in the Basic Kit

The kit includes one ounce (29 ml) each of Green Earth, Umber, Vine Black, Yellow Ocher, Red Ocher, and Titanium White—all packaged in individual plastic jars. These pigments represent a basic set of hues used in historical painting before the nineteenth century.

Purpose of the Basic Paint-Making Kit

The Natural Pigments Basic Paint-Making Kit is designed for artists who wish to make small amounts of paint in any medium. You will find it useful for making paint on the spot, as you need them. Unlike larger grinding tools, the small size of these tools allows for easy carefree cleanup between use. It's also a great educational tool for instructors to demonstrate how artists' paint was made prior to the nineteenth century.

The kit includes the following items:
