WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? Most pre-made paints on the market contain a variety of toxic chemical stabilizers, petrochemicals, fillers, and preservatives. That's the "fast food" approach that the mainstream paint industry thinks that consumers demand, but we disagree. We believe that the SMALL extra step of mixing the powdered paint is well worth the peace of mind of knowing you are using the safest and most sustainable paint on the market and because you're not shipping water, you reduce the footprint of your craft.
Directions: Simply pour the powdered dye into 1/2 cup of hot water and place egg in solution for 10-20 min.

ABOUT THE COMPANY Natural Earth Paint was founded in 2011 by professional artist, mom and environmentalist, Leah Fanning. After becoming pregnant with her first child in 2009, Leah immediately disposed of all of her toxic and synthetic supplies. She had been searching for truly non-toxic, yet very high quality art supplies for years and with the news of her baby on the way she finally decided to create the products that she desired. After realizing that this way of painting created much higher quality and more archival supplies than the synthetic, toxic counterparts, she was on a mission to spread the word to artists everywhere.
Natural Earth Paint was born soon after with only two products: the Children’s Earth Paint Kit and the Earth Oil Paint Kit and production took place in one small room at home. After years of dedication, hard work, and support from eco-conscious customers like you, we are thankful to be a growing business as we continue to spread the word about our all-natural products.
