Coloured Earth Pigments - Synthetics

£4.50  Price includes VAT


Product Description

Coloured Earth's synthetic pigment range is a collection of Non-toxic, mineral based pigments suitable for colouring or tinting a wide range of media.

Applications include:

  • Natural paints (e.g clay paints and chalk paints)
  • Varnishes, waxes, stains and glazes
  • Artist paints and pastels
  • Handmade paper

Synthetic pigments are pigments which have been chemically manufactured, often to create the bright colours unobtainable from natural earth pigments. 
All of the Coloured Earth Synthetics are manufactured on mineral bases and are non-toxic.

If you are looking for the more earthy tones of natural pigments such as ochres, siennas and umbers take a look at the Coloured Earth Naturals range.
