Our historic paints come in a small shells, in the form of a semi-hard cake made from pigment, honey, and gum arabic. The paint cakes keep for years and do not require special care when being stored. Wetted with a little water they make excellent water colors, and mixed with egg yolk or glair they make excellent historic egg tempera paint. We use historic and non-toxic pigments in the paints we sell.
