Natural Pigments Watercolour Paint Kit for making watercolours and/or gouache. Here are all the tools you need and a sample set of six natural mineral and earth pigments to start making your own paint. Kit also includes watercolour medium.
The Rublev Colours Watercolour Paint Making Kit is intended for artists who want to expand their painting horizons, but have little or no experience making their own watercolour and/or gouache paints. The kit comes with all the materials that you need to get started, including instructions, glass muller, grinding surface and six traditional pigments in dry powder form to start making your own watercolour or gouache paint.
It is designed for artists who wish to make small amounts of watercolour paint. You will find it useful for making paint on the spot, as you need them. Unlike larger grinding tools, the small size of these tools allows for easy carefree cleanup between use. It's also a great educational tool for instructors to demonstrate how artists' paint was made prior to the nineteenth century.
It 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.
