Paint

"Natural Earth Paint" is a small business out of Oregon.  Their natural powdered pigments are from the earth, non-toxic, vegan and versatile.  While intended to be mixed with walnut oil for oil painting primarily, I bind the earth powders with acrylic mediums for my acrylic paintings.  I moved on to working with oils recently (2019) and I support Gamblin brand primarily, another family run business in Oregon. I truly enjoy supporting small, independent businesses.
