Paint pigment for historical painting and restoration


We sell historical paint pigments made by Verfmolen de Kat. They make paint pigments in a completely historical way in the paint mill. This pigment is suitable for restoration and the creation of authentic medieval and Renaissance paintings and murals. With these pigments you can make both tempera paint and oil paint. Only the binding method differs. Tempera paint is made from pigment with egg yolk, and for oil paint you use linseed oil as a binding agent. We also have a set of tempera paint in tubes, if you don't feel like making the paint yourself, but want to paint historically. Tempera paint was mainly used on wooden panels.
