How We Make Paints
What makes really good color is the choice of vehicle, the quality of pigment, and the care with which you prepare them.
Whether it’s the walnut oil, the honey used in our watercolor or the high solid acrylic emulsion, our vehicles are all chosen because they are qualitatively different: In terms of their appearance. In terms of how much pigment they can carry. In terms of how they feel and respond on the artist’s brush.
We select the finest example of every pigment from sources all over the world. To most, this means they are the highest grade. To us, it means they are the most beautiful of their kind. And after going to such lengths to find them, we wouldn't dream of diluting them. So when we make color, we don't use fillers. We don't use extenders. We don't put adulterants in. These all have a negative impact on color and the eye sees it.
