Fun With Natural Earth Paints!

So what’s up with these powdered pigments?

Natural Earth Paint pigments can be used for a wide range of artistic applications!

Mix with water to create tempera, watercolor, or finger paint: As a guideline, I use a 50/50 pigment to water ratio for water color. For tempera or poster paint, add small amounts of water to the pigment until you reach your desired thickness. Pigments are non-toxic, so play around with the kids as finger paint!

Mix with plant-based acrylic medium to create fine art quality acrylics! I love the control I have mixing my own opaqueness and colors with this method!

Mix with walnut oil to create fine art quality oil paint! Add eco-solve as a planet-friendly paint thinner and brush cleaner!

Mix with gum arabic to create professional-quality ink, water color and gouache!

Archive your creations with the World’s Only Eco Varnish!

Once mixed, store paint in the refrigerator up to two weeks.

Feeling bold?

Experiment adding Earth Pigments to all your handmade projects, including modeling clay, paper, dye projects…artist Elisa Wagner even made her own encaustic paint!
