Our collection of natural, mineral and historical pigments serves all those who are seeking the beauty of true color, far from the paint industry. The pigments come from several places of the Old World and, through careful processes of pulverizing, grinding and levigating, offer their best qualities to arts. They can be used by artists for most demanding works, such as frescoes, but also by experienced artisans who give attention to authenticity and detail. They are the same colours made by ancient Greek, Roman, Byzantine, medieval and Renaissance painters in combination with traditional binders as lime, egg, casein, oil or Arabic gum.
We use them for our lime paints, lime plasters, tadelakt, as these only work well with lime and never fade. We offer them, as well.
For artists, colours are values and they have to know how to handle them : the chemical formula, the origin, even a few notes from scripts – since all the pigments that we are presenting here belong to the historical ones.
