What are people saying about Natural Earth Paint?

Comment from internationally known illustrator, Roberto Parada - "There is something quite beautiful about the art of making your own paint. Rembrandt, Velazquez, Titian all made their oil colors in their studio from pure pigment, derived of this good earth, with walnut oil… and those paintings have stood the test of time. Natural Earth Paint does the same. Real earth pigments that are safe and the purest color of this world. An artist should, at least once in their lives, try to work in the old traditions of pure earth pigment and walnut oil."

 

Simply mix pigments with walnut oil using a palette knife, or for more thorough mixing, finish with a glass muller. And don't forget our eco-friendly, vegan Gesso Kit to prime your canvas first!

FAQs

Product

Why should I mix my own paint when I can buy paint pre-made?

We believe that the extra step of mixing the powdered paint is well worth the peace of mind of knowing you are using the safest and most sustainable paint on the market. Most pre-made paints on the market contain a variety of toxic chemical stabilizers, petrochemicals, fillers, and preservatives. That's the "fast food" approach that the mainstream paint industry thinks that consumers demand, but we disagree! Our customers deserve better.

 

Safety and Quality

Where do your pigments come from?

We purchase our pigments from small quarries in countries across the world, including the USA, France, and Italy, depending on where that colour pigment is prevalent in the ground.

 

What is your packaging made from?

We use locally made, 100% post-consumer recycled packaging, home-compostable pigment pouches, and recyclable glass and aluminum bottles for our products.

 

Can my child or I eat your paints?

Although they are non-toxic, our paints are not intended for consumption. However, our Natural Egg Dye Kits are FDA approved for use in food!

 

Are your products free of nuts, dairy, and gluten for people with allergies?

All of our products are free of gluten and dairy. Our only product containing nuts is our Refined Walnut Oil, but it is not processed in our facility.

 

Are your products cruelty-free?

Absolutely! None of our products are ever tested on animals.

 

Have these products been tested for health safety?

Yes, all of the paints, pigments, and supplies have been tested by government certified toxicologists and are also third party tested. They are certified completely non-toxic.

 

Where do you find the ultramarine blue and ultramarine purple pigments?

The blue and purple pigments are our only pigments that have been fired and manipulated to get their vibrant color. Each is composed of 90% natural earthen clay and 10% man-made, non-toxic minerals (which are heated in an oven to a high temperature to create their vibrant color.) 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.

 

What is Titanium Dioxide made of?

Titanium dioxide occurs in nature as the well-known mineral, Rutile. Rutile is the second most abundant mineral in sand. It has been processed to extract the pure white mineral that we use in our paint kits. Although, it can be confused with Titanium Metal (TI) which is a silver metal that can also be derived from the same deposits, it is a separate component. Titanium Metal is not a part of Titanium White pigment which does not contain any metal.

 

Is it toxic to breathe the dust before mixing it into paint?

It’s not healthy to breathe any type of dust into your lungs, even if it is non-toxic and natural (like our pigments), or even dust from a dirt road! When mixing your paint, use caution to avoid creating clouds of pigment dust. 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 certified mask for greater protection. You can see specifics on how to mix your paints safely here.

 

Do your paints wash off skin, furniture, clothes, etc.?

Our paints wash off of skin very easily—for extra help cleaning up the hands and body, especially when using oil paints, our Pinerite is the perfect all-natural solution. Our paints also wash off of hard surfaces, but they may stain clothing, carpet, or fabric.

 

 

How To Use

Can I use these pigments for air dry clay?

Yes! You can check our recipe for naturally coloured air dry clay here

 

How long do your oil paints take to dry?

On average, it takes about 4-7 days for oil paint to dry, but it may take shorter or longer depending on your conditions.

 

Can I use your Earth Paints as Face Paint?

Earth pigments have been used by most indigenous cultures to paint their faces and bodies for thousands of years. Our Natural Face Paints are made with cosmetic-grade pigments and organic ingredients and are perfect for any kind of body painting. 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.

 

Can I dye or paint my clothes with your paints?

Yes! Earth & Mineral Pigments can dye fabric along with a mordant to set the color to the fabric. Most commercially-available mordants are potentially toxic, but we have tutorials for making permanent, non-toxic, and natural fabric paint and fabric dye from soybeans. Alternatively, you can also use our Natural Acrylic Medium to create permanent fabric paint by mixing it with any of our Earth & Mineral Pigments!

 

Can I paint my walls with your paints?

Yes! You can paint murals or decorative art on your walls with either the Natural Earth Paint Kit (water-based) or the Complete Eco-Friendly Oil Paint Kit (pigment mixed with walnut oil). 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.

 

Can I paint on metal, concrete, or exterior surfaces with your paints?

For metal and concrete, you should use an oil-based primer on the surface first—there are many online resources on the topic. Our paints are not intended for exterior surfaces or heavy exposure to harsh weather unless sealed with our Natural Varnish or Natural Acrylic Medium

 

How do I store mixed paints, and how long do they last once mixed?

The children’s paints in the Natural Earth Paint Kit are best used fresh. We recommend that you only mix as much as you need for one painting session. The paints stay good at room temperature for several weeks if kept in a sealed container (although they will stay good longer if refrigerated). The oil paints in the Complete Eco-friendly Oil Paint Kit can be stored in foil, air-tight glass jars, or aluminum tubes. For more information on storing oil paints, visit our blog.


Purchasing, Shipping, & Returns

What is your return policy?

We offer full refunds on any defective or damaged products. We also offer full refunds on returns if product is in re-sellable condition. Please refer to our Return/Exhange page for more details.

Wonderful non toxic experience

We are moving to working with non toxic and eco friendly paints and cleaners that I can use for myself and with my young children. These pigments are easy to mix, I used a different type of oil but the pigments work beautifully. I love the Evo Solve as well. Wish I had gotten the mixing chart so decided to get that after the fact - it’s useful even though I do have a decent understanding of colour mixing. It’s just a nice reference and a great tool to teach colour mixing to my children. With these pigments, we were able to get quite a beautiful range of colours.

still experimenting, but so much fun and excellent results!

I made my first batch of paint from Venetian Red and a bit of yellow ochre and was able to perfectly colour match Benjamin Moore's "Salsa Dancing", using the soy-based medium to blend it. I used that little pot of paint it to paint a pillar in my basement to match an existing accent wall. There was ZERO odour, and cleanup was super easy. I think I'm hooked. I went with the Natural Earth Pigments to see if I really could just leave petrochemical-based paint behind, and also find something that will breathe to put on my 1947 natural plaster walls (acrylic paint having peeled off in many places). I also wanted to be able to tweak the colour until I got just what I wanted, having many times brought home something from the store that just didn't look right once the whole room was painted. Next up: the flour-based wall paint recipe.

Mixed bag

Arrived quickly—thanks! It would be great to have a sturdier container than zip-lock bags. Also, the yellow that arrived is too dark to mix a bright green. I think you should include a light yellow with the starter kit.
