Description

Natural Earth & Mineral Pigments are beautifully archival, eco-friendly, and sustainably-harvested from around the world. They contain no added fillers, additives, preservatives, stabilizers, or heavy metals. Each box contains all 20 of our earth & mineral pigments (2 tsp per colour).

Each natural pigment has a different set of characteristics, such as liquid absorption, volume, tinting strength, and granulation. Because of these characteristics, they each require a different volume of binder to create the desired paint consistency.

Venetian Red (Venetian Red MSDS), Colour Index #PR102
After testing many red earth pigments from around the world, we chose this vibrant red from a family- owned quarry in Italy for its luminous, rich red colour and mixing quality.

  • Natural Iron Oxide
  • Lightfastness: Excellent / Permanent
  • Particle Size: 50 microns
  • Opacity: Opaque
  • Color Stable to 330 degrees F
Orange Ochre (Orange Ochre MSDS), Colour Index #PY43
This vibrant and warm natural orange pigment comes from a quarry in France.
  • Natural Iron Oxide
  • Lightfastness: Excellent / Permanent

  • Particle Size: 50 micron
  • Opacity: Opaque
  • Color Stable to 300 degrees F
Terre Verte (Terre Verte MSDS), Colour Index #PG23
After testing many green earth pigments from around the world, we chose this rich green from a quarry in France. With yellow undertones, it is more translucent when used alone and becomes a rich, opaque green when mixed with white.
  • Natural Earth Loam
  • Lightfastness: Excellent / Permanent
  • Particle Size: 50 micron
  • Opacity: Semi-Transparent
  • Color Stable to 330 degrees F
Ultramarine Blue (Ultramarine Blue MSDS), Colour Index # PB29
This radiant blue pigment is our only colour that has been fired to get its vibrant colour. It is composed of 90% earthen clay and 10% man-made, non-toxic minerals, and it is heated in an oven to a high temperature. The composition of the mineral is Si4O10(OH)2Mg3. 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 this beautiful, non-toxic and sustainably- made alternative from France.
  • Lightfastness: Excellent
  • Particle Size: 50 micron
  • Opacity: Semi-transparent
  • Color Stable to 300 degrees F
Burnt Umber (Burnt Umber MSDS), Colour Index # PBr7

Violet Ochre (Violet Ochre MSDS), Colour Index #PR102
This violet earth hails from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. It is a beautiful earthy reddish, brownish violet. If you would like a more true colour spectrum purple, try our Ultramarine Purple.

Titanium White Rutile (Titanium White MSDS), Colour Index #PW6
This is an opaque white pigment with high opacity, perfect for using alone or lightening other colours. Titanium Dioxide, not to be confused with Titanium Metal (Ti), occurs in nature as the well-known mineral, Rutile, found in metamorphic and igneous rocks. Rutile is the second most abundant mineral sand and is processed to extract the pure white mineral that we use in our paint kits.
  • Lightfastness: Excellent
  • Particle Size: 50 microns
  • Opacity: Opaque
  • Color Stable to 330 degrees F

Note: Titanium Dioxide is toxic to breathe in large amounts because it contains silica (which is abrasive to the lungs), so please wear a mask when mixing this pigment in dry form.

Natural Mica Gold (Natural Mica Gold MSDS), Colour Index #PW-20

  • Our Mica is a very fine, non-tarnishing, brilliant gold that adds a lovely sparkle to paintings.

Note: If added to white or opaque paint, it will get buried. Because this pigment is so fine, it tends to float and disperse easily into the air; we recommend wearing a Niosh certified mask while mixing.

Natural Mica Silver (Natural Mica Silver MSDS), Colour Index #PW-20

  • Our Mica is a very fine, non-tarnishing, brilliant silver that adds a lovely sparkle to paintings.

Note: If added to white or opaque paint, it will get buried. Because this pigment is so fine, it tends to float and disperse easily into the air, and the Silver Mica contains a small percentage of Titanium Dioxide, which can be harmful if inhaled in large quantities; we recommend wearing a Niosh certified mask while mixing.

Natural Mica Copper (Natural Mica Copper MSDS), Colour Index #PW-20

  • Our Mica is a very fine, non-tarnishing, brilliant silver that adds a lovely sparkle to paintings.
Note: If added to white or opaque paint, it will get buried. Because this pigment is so fine, it tends to float and disperse easily into the air; we recommend wearing a Niosh certified mask while mixing.

Ultramarine Purple (Ultramarine Purple MSDS), Colour Index #PV15
This pigment is a beautiful and unique bright purple, similar to Dioxazine Purple, that no other combination of pigments can create. Our Ultramarine Purple is a 10% organic, man-made pigment fixed on an earthen clay mineral base from France.

  • Opacity: Semi-Transparent
  • Color Stable to 300 degrees F
