Safety & Quality
Throughout history, blues in nature were very rare and usually made with precious stones like Lapis Lazuli. These stones are now unsustainably harvested in Afghanistan, so we have found a beautiful and non-toxic alternative.
If you gently scoop the pigment onto a palette and carefully mix it with oil, no dust should be created. Some people who are extra sensitive or concerned about dust can wear a Niosh certified mask for greater protection. You can see specifics on how to mix your paints safely here.
How To Use
With this method, you should seal the wood with our Natural Varnish or Acrylic Medium to make it waterproof since the paint will rub off if it gets wet.
Another option is using the oil paint from our Complete Eco-friendly Oil Paint Kit (pigment mixed with walnut oil)—it makes an archival, beautiful, professional, non-toxic paint!
This paint is oil-based, so it takes 4-7 days to dry to the touch. Using the Natural Acrylic Medium, you can mix the medium with our Earth & Mineral Pigments for a vibrant acrylic paint that dries faster than oil paints
However, the children's paints contain gum arabic and cornstarch, which are safe ingredients but can be drying or irritating to some individuals’ skin with prolonged contact. We recommend using our Natural Face Paints instead because they’ve been specifically formulated to nourish the skin while providing vibrant, skin-safe color.
Alternatively, you can also use our Natural Acrylic Medium to create permanent fabric paint by mixing it with any of our Earth & Mineral Pigments!
You can also follow our wall mural earth paint tutorial and mix the Earth & Mineral Pigments with wheat paste as a binder, or use our clay house paint tutorial.

Artists mix these pure, powdered Earth & Mineral Pigments with Refined Walnut Oil to create oil paint with the same method used by the Old Masters of the Renaissance before tubes of paint were invented.
Students and teachers in schools and colleges where the practice of oil painting is prohibited because of the terrible-smelling solvents and the heavy metal toxins notorious in conventional paints such as Lead White or any of the cadmium colors.
Artists working in shared studio space where the buildup of solvent fumes could lead to an acutely dangerous concentration of vapors. Artists who work within a small home environment and wish to reduce the odor of oil painting.
Artists who want more vibrancy and luminosity in their paintings without fillers and preservatives to dull the color. Artists on-the-go who frequently travel by air and need a painting option that’s easy and safe to carry with them (make sure your liquids aren’t in your carry-on bag, though!)
Earth-conscious artists who want to protect the planet, take control of their materials, or mix their own paints like the Old Masters of the Renaissance.
