These paint pigments can be used to make any kind of paint. The swatch below is from a watercolor paint. Use the powder to make whatever kind of paints you’d like.
Wild Ozark’s Paleo Paint pigments are sustainably foraged from right here around our home. Most of the color comes from various iron and magnesium oxide compounds. These are earth pigments and are generally considered lightfast. The rocks are abundant and on the surface of the ground when I collect them. They often start out as larger rocks, but I break them into smaller sizes so our handy rock crusher can process them into a powder.
The color of the paint from this pigment is a rusty orange, with a slight hint of red. To make a smooth paint from this pigment powder, you’ll probably want to grind it a little more in a mortar and pestle (that’s what I do).
