Availability: In stock



The Natural Pigments 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, glass muller, 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 Green Earth, Umber, Titanium White, Gold Ocher, Red Ocher, and Vine Black—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 Watercolor Paint-Making Kit

The Natural Pigments Watercolor Paint-Making Kit is designed for artists who wish to make small amounts of watercolor paint. 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:
