As you know by now, we’re a small company with a big heart.
I worried that our Scarlet Red (PAR 11) is a bit pricey, but affordable reds are hard to find.
I think our watercolorists and oil painters would like Alizarin Crimson for their florals and skin tones. So we got samples in and I swatch-tested them against our existing Scarlet Red (PAR 11).
We’re looking for your preference among these “test” reds. Send us an email to let us know which ones you like.

We’ll order the winning pigments to have them in stock before the Holidays, and, before Watercolor Live. We are a Silver Sponsor! Another Blog post will give lots of details if you didn’t get to enjoy Plein Air Live or Realism Live. If you haven’t signed up, please use this link.
Because of the pandemic, many art workshops and conferences in the US have been cancelled this year. Some in person events have been replaced with virtual conferences, which have some limitations but also provide some opportunities that are not necessarily there in person. For example, some artists may not be free to travel but can attend a conference or workshop on line! The Realism Live global virtual conference is going to be held on line (this October 20-24) in place of the FACE conference and workshop that was to be held in Baltimore this fall. Ancient Earth Pigments is a Gold sponsor of this event and is contributing gift packets for VIP ticket holders that include samples of some of our products.
We have also prepared an introductory video for the conference describing some of our products, and includes some demonstration of their use. Here is an edit of the demonstration video for your enjoyment. In addition to an introduction to some of our products, we have a demo of color preparations.
