AS A MIXED MEDIA ARTIST,  I am one who loves to dabble in many mediums to see what I can create with them.  Once I figured out the beauty of mixing pigment powders, I couldnt stop.  I love to play with color, and what better way than to push these pigments into creating their own magic. Because I use many different pigments, they dont always play nicely together, but they can still have their own magic on paper! My paints are totally my style and may not be yours, but I promise if you gave one a try, you will be supprised how fun they can be.
Mother nature is our never ending giver of life, and pure elements that we use to create our art that lasts for years to come. RW paints are created using these materials that have been tried and tested over the years.
They are hand mixed with either a pestle and mortar or on a slab for larger batches.  They are granulated paints, meaning when created, I do not blend them for a very long time and because of this technique, the pigments are not ground into a solid color.  You will be able to see each color that is blended into the paints as they start to dissolve on the paper.  This creates a beautifully textured watercolor painting.
Because these are handcrafted, they are pure pigments without all the added fluff that larger companies add to their products.  The colors are rich and so yummy!
Ingredients include: NON TOXIC – Variety of Brands
  • Natural Earth Pigments
  • Ocher Pigments
  • French Mineral Pigments Powder
  • Oxide Pigments
  • Mica Powders
  • Gum Arabic powder
  • Organic Raw Honey
  • Vegan Glycerine
  • Essential Oils.
I have explored with many combinations of ingredients and finally found the perfect mix.  With the combination of honey and glycerin, the paints are a little softer, not hard as some are.  They will still crack as that is the nature of the beast!
I strongly suggest you try handcrafted paints, even if its just one time. They are quite different than mass produced paints and I am sure you will fall in love with them as much as I have.
You may see at times that I do not have anything in stock.  I have a day job that takes up my fun time, but retirement is getting closer by the day!  Please now I will do my best to keep these in stock!  I have big plans, so hang in there while I bring them to life!
Please contact me with any questions you have about my paints.

a little about pigments

Most pigments are sourced from Europe and a few from the USA, these pigments are non-toxic and obtained in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

NATURAL EARTH AND OCHER pigments consist of entirely natural hues extracted from the Earth. These pigments generate gentle, semi-transparent colors with subtle undertones that emerge when blended with opaque bases. While their tinting strength may not be as robust or opaque as our Oxide pigments, their unique colors are unparalleled by synthetic alternatives.
FRENCH MINERAL pigments represent a collection crafted solely by The Society of Ochers in France. Capturing the essence of the French Countryside, they consist of 90-99% natural components, with Oxides accounting for 10% or less. Similar to the Natural Earths and Ochers, these pigments yield charming, soft tones and delicate pastels when incorporated into white bases.
PRIMARY PIGMENTS typically encompass artist colors, with many being recognized as primary hues. In this collection, alternatives to harmful cadmium colors are presented, alongside non-toxic reproductions of vibrant historical pigments. This diverse range of colors proves versatile and can be applied in various art, craft, and architectural projects. For specific applications such as lime washes, lime plasters, and cements, please consult the individual color descriptions. All pigments within this collection are compatible with lime in Milk paints.
OXIDE PIGMENTS on the other hand, are robust and visually striking opaque pigments. They require minimal application, as a small dip goes a long way in painting. They stand as the stalwarts in the realm of pigments, known for their robust characteristics. These opaque and intensely tinting colors are man-made with formidable strength. Oxides prove to be dependable tinting agents compatible with various mediums, ranging from arts and crafts to plasters and cements. Their production involves the synthesis of natural elements, ensuring a non-toxic and responsibly crafted outcome.
