Product description


The Natural Pigments Casein Paint Making Kit is intended for artists who want to expand their painting horizons, but have little or no experience making their own casein paints. The kit comes with all the materials that you need to get started, including instructions, glass muller, grinding surface and six pigments in dry powder form to start making your own paint.

Casein is a milk protein that is insoluble in water, but can be made into a water-based paint or glue by dissolving in water with an alkali, such as borax or ammonia. It makes a fast-drying paint that was used in ancient Egypt as tempera paint and widely used by commercial illustrators.

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.

Pigments Included in the Kit

The kit includes the Introductory Pigment Sampler--one ounce (29 ml) each of five dry powder pigments packaged in individual plastic jars. These pigments represent a basic set of hues used in historical painting before the nineteenth century.

Purpose of the Casein Paint Making Kit

The Natural Pigments Casein Paint Making Kit is designed for artists who wish to make small amounts of casein 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 twentieth century.

The kit includes the following items:
