Back to Basics Pigment Salt Sprinkle


Back to Basics Pigment Salt Sprinkle.

This Pigment~ Salt Sprinkle adds so much fun to your artwork. Compatible with traditional watercolors, watercolor pencils, pens, and more. Use this Pigment Salt Sprinkle to add interesting backgrounds and texture to your work. A little goes a long way as pigment and salt particles are very fine. There are many ways to use it: sprinkle onto wet paper and watch the colors flow! I like to use a dry brush to dip in the sprinkle and them tap it off onto my paper. You can also add some to water where it will dissolve and can be used like liquid watercolor paint/ink. Have fun experimenting with this fun medium! More colors are coming soon.

Although the manufacturer of the pigment powder says they are lightfast, because they are dye-based they can be more likely to fade depending on how they are displayed. If you are concerned about that, use a UV spray or frame under UV glass for more protection.

Ruby Mountain Paint Company specializes in micro-batch, artisanal watercolors using pigments sourced from around the world. Our paints are always non-toxic, lovingly hand poured into whole pans, half pans, or bottle caps. We make high quality paint and art supplies for all types of artists. Each color is made from pure, artist-grade pigments and our own all natural binder formula, which includes gum arabic, local honey, and a time-honored, clove oil preservative. Each pigment is mulled by hand until it is the proper, luscious consistency. Each pan is poured once, slowly cured, then topped off so that the pans are as full as possible. Your order is packaged mindfully, using eco-friendly packaging and shipped to you from our studio in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
