How to mix paint? Scoop a small mound of pigment (one or two tbsp.) on a palette, piece of glass, or flat container. Make an indentation in the centre like a volcano, slowly add a small amount of refined walnut oil, and mix thoroughly with a palette knife until the thick paste forms. Adjust amounts of oil and pigment until you get a thick paste consistency. 

That is it! You have just made the most archival, radiant and pure paint that is free of any fillers, stabilizers, preservatives, heavy metal toxins and petroleum-based pigments. 

Notes: 

  • If desired, you can mix up the entire packet of pigment and store in an aluminium tube or airtight container
  • These paints mix perfectly with any brand of conventional tubed oil paints. Feel free to use a combination of the two
  • If you run out of walnut oil, you can use any refined walnut or linseed oil. Walnut oil is preferred as Linseed oil has a tendency to "yellow" a painting as it ages

How to thin paint: The use of solvents (as a paint thinner and brush cleaner) is a relatively recent development in the art history. Instead of solvents, traditional oil painters such as Rembrandt typically used walnut or linseed oil to thin their paint and clean their brushes. These days you can either use the Eco-Solve which is a 100% plant-based and non-toxic paint thinner or the refined Walnut oil.

Eco criteria

Eco Product selection criteria

When we source our products, we try to find as many environmental benefits as possible. We source eco products that do not cause any unnecessary harm to our environment.
This particular product matches the following critera (click on each to see other products matching the same):

All of our eco criteria explained

Made from recycled materials or is recyclable

Recycling has many benefits like saving energy, conserving raw materials, reducing the amount of stuff that goes to landfills and it's also saving you money. 2.5 Million Tons of waste go to landfills each year (8kg per person/week) 3/4 could be saved by re-using, recycling and composting. Re-duce, Re-use, Re-cycle!

Contain no toxins or harmful ingredients

Many people suffer from allergies, asthma and other sensitivities because of products that contain toxins or otherwise harmful ingredients. Most of these products are used inside the house eg. for cleaning, as body care products, as a detergent and so on. We try to source products that are mostly natural and do not cause any harm to you or your environment.

Be compostable or biodegradable

What is the difference? Compostable materials provide the earth with nutrients once it has completely broken down. Biodegradable materials refer to the ability of breaking down and return to nature. Buying products that are compostable and/or biodegradable will help to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.

Fairly traded or Fairtrade certified

At the beginning of most production chains are the workers and farmers (producers). Sadly they do not always get a fair share of the benefits of the trade. You as a consumer can now make a conscious decision about buying fairtrade or fairly traded products and putting this right.

Reduce the dependence on oil

Many household items are made of plastic. Because plastic doesn't react chemically with most other substances, it doesn't break down or decay. Therefore, plastic poses a significant environmental problem as it hangs around in the environment for a very long time. We stock many products that use little or no plastic in order to reduce our dependence on oil.

Cruelty free

The testing on animals for cosmetic and consumer products needs to stop. Whether you decide to buy only vegan products, or just start incorporating more cruelty-free products into your life, it's definitely worth to go animal friendly. The products we source are cruelty-free and do not harm or kill animals in their making.
