NATURAL EARTH BASE + 10% MAN-MADE MINERAL
Mayan Red, Color Index #PR287
After years of searching for a completely non-toxic and professional-grade primary red, we chose this vibrant, bright red pigment that is archival and humidity-resistant. It is composed of a natural calcium carbonate base processed with a man-made, non-toxic pigment.
Brilliant Yellow, Color Index #PY53
This is a primary yellow pigment, similar to Lemon Yellow. It is a 10% man-made pigment affixed on an earthen clay mineral base - from France.
Ultramarine Blue, Color Index # PB29
This radiant blue pigment is our only color that has been fired to get its vibrant color. It is composed of 90% earthen clay and 10% man-made, non-toxic minerals, and it is heated in an oven to a high temperature. 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 this beautiful, non-toxic and sustainably- made alternative from France.
Emerald Green, Color Index #PG17
This is a rich, opaque, bright green pigment that is UV-resistant and has a powerful tinting strength. It is man-made from natural elements. It is essentially a manmade green rust made by mixing carbon dioxide with two forms of iron.
This is a beautiful and true turquoise shade from France. It is composed of 10% manufactured mineral pigment affixed on a natural base (calcium carbonate).
Titanium White Rutile, Color Index #PW6
ABOUT LAB MADE MINERALS
"Man-made means created in a lab. Because we won't sell pigments that contain heavy metals or known toxins, and because sometimes harvesting is bad for the environment or for humans, this limits the number of pigments that we are able to source straight from the earth. For these, we have to take a base (usually clay) and through the use of high temps, affix to it the lab-made mineral. So, while the clay is straight from the earth and makes up 90% of the finished pigment, 10% is mineral created in a lab. This mineral is totally non-toxic and still considered inorganic. This is the solution for pigments that are either high in toxins or are unsustainable/non-ecological to harvest straight from the earth."
