Each of our paints has a unique combination of ingredients depending on the pigments used. The pigment is enveloped in our binding solution with a paint muller on a glass slab until it reaches the perfect consistency. The pans are then filled in thin layers over several weeks to ensure they are rich and highly concentrated.
