Our Pigments are finely ground Natural Earth Pigments and of the highest quality. Over recent years earth pigments have become extremely popular with model makers, who wish to achieve realistic and authentic looking finishes, especially with military and railway enthusiasts where a weathered look is far more desirable. The pigments are commonly mixed with thinners to create a paste or mixed with acrylic resins or varnish and glues to replicate urban, rural, industrial or warfare surface conditions like: dust, dirt, mud, rust or surfaces that are in state of damage or repair.

Available in ProPigment sets or individual pots. Our pigments are not sold for cosmetic, pharmaceutical or food use. Use care when handling any dry pigment. Avoid inhaling pigment dust.
