Ancient Pigments of the Past

Most ancient pigments were toxic, fugitive or both. Using only the finest quality pigments, Stephen from Bondi Road Art Supplies has replicated 42 ancient pigments, most of which no longer exist. All pigments have been extensively researched for colour accuracy and every process is done by hand.

Stephen has blended small amounts of mica into 9 pigments in order to replicate their original crystalline beauty.

Even though there are no cadmium or lead based pigments used, care should be taken not to inhale or ingest the pigment powder. Mix thoroughly into any binding medium to experience exciting colour that will connect you to your ancestors and yourself.
