Watercolor Paint Making Kit
Kit for making watercolors and/or gouache. Here are all the tools you need and a sample set of six natural mineral and earth pigments to start making your own watercolor paint. The kit also includes watercolor medium. NEW
Rublev Colours Watercolor Paint Making Kit is intended for artists who want to expand their painting horizons, but have little or no experience making their own watercolor and/or gouache paints. The kit comes with all the materials that you need to get started, including instructions, a glass muller, a grinding surface, and six traditional pigments in dry powder form to start making your own watercolor or gouache 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 Kit
The kit includes one ounce (29 ml) each of six pigments—all packaged in individual plastic jars. These pigments represent a basic set of hues used in historical watercolor paintings during the nineteenth century.
Purpose of the Watercolor Paint Making Kit
The Rublev Colours Watercolor Paint Making Kit is designed for artists who wish to make small amounts of watercolor paint. You will find it helpful in 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 before the nineteenth century.
