The Rublev Colours Advanced Paint Making Kit is intended for artists who want to expand their painting horizons, but have little or no experience making their own paints. The kit comes with all the materials that you need to get started, including instructions, glass muller, grinding surface and 12 pigments in dry powder form to start making your own paint in any medium you choose—whether it be oils, watercolors, egg tempera, casein tempera, distemper or fresco.

The kit 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. It is also our top of the line kit, yet it represents a significant savings over purchasing each item in the kit separately.
