Linda takes to the studio to demonstrate making three different paints – watercolor, gouache, and egg tempera – from one pigment. Our Alizarin Crimson, a synthesis of the natural pigment from the madder plant, is used to make three different kinds of paints. More demonstration videos coming soon!
Tutorial: Making Watercolor Paint
In this video, made for the Watercolor LIVE! conference, Linda demonstrates how to make watercolor paints from dry pigment powder, water, gum arabic, and glycerin, and takes her freshly made paints to the beach! Some of the tools and materials are newly available in the Ancient Earth Pigments store. See our recent blog post for details about new products in the store.

Mixing Davy’s Grey – A Video Demonstration
You can use our products for many different applications. In this demonstration Linda shows how to mix pigment powders to match existing paints. Davy’s Grey in pastel is no longer available from the manufacturer. However, using our pigments, you can match the color and make your own pastel, egg tempera, gouache, watercolor, or oil paints.
