NATURAL PAINT
WORKSHOPS & INFORMATION

learn more...

Natural paints and clear coatings are derived from plants, animal protein, minerals, non-toxic oils, and even bugs.  They can be purchased from a number of companies offering milk-based, clay-based, and plant-based paints.  Natural paints can also be made at home using all non-toxic ingredients.  Natural paints create rich, beautiful finishes with a depth that is difficult if impossible to achieve with standard latex paints.  Pigments come in a full range of color, from muted earth tones to saturated vibrant colors.

We teach workshops on making natural paints from completely non-toxic ingredients!   Check HERE for a listing of upcoming workshops.  Contact us to participate or for additional information.

WORKSHOP INCLUDES
  • overview of ingredients and benefits

  • recipes and mixing techniques
