Pigments earth colours
The Rembrandt House demonstrates how to make your own oil paint from dry pigments. We have a selection of 12 pigments that match the pigments Rembrandt used. Not every pigment is the same because lead white is poisonous. We replaced it with titanium white. Smalt is replaced with synthetic ultramarine. And madder is an imitation. The pigments are ground in a mill at the famous Zaanse Schans.
Here is the selection of the 6 earth colours: Ochre Yellow, Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber, Burnt Umber, Kassel Earth and Italian green earth (in order on the photo's). The pigments come in a glass jar of 50 ml with screw top. Every jar has a sticker with the name of the pigment in English. The weight differs per pigment, Kassel Earth is heavier than Burnt Umber. With each order comes a leaflet in English explaining how to make your oil paint, including how to make children's paint with milk. When you want more information take a look at the booklett Rembrandt's Paintingmaterials.
