Earth Paint The Children's Kit

 

The Children’s Earth Paint Kit is an organic, eco-friendly, and non-toxic paint kit made from primarily natural earth pigments (pure clay). The naturally colored clay was collected from the ground, dried, crushed and sifted into pure pigment. It is different from other children’s paint in that it is a high quality, rich, vibrant paint that is free of fillers and preservatives.

  • Mixing equal parts water with the powdered colors produces creamy paint similar to tempera.
  • Use with different materials including paper, canvas, stones, fabric or wood. For a watercolor effect, simply add more water.
  • Reusable, locally made packaging, 100% Post Consumer Recycled, biodegradable & compostable.
  • Packaging printed with vegetable based inks.
  • Made in the USA.
  • Earth Paints are 100% non-toxic. But Earth Paint still does not recommend ingesting them and please avoid inhaling the dust. Possible Allergen: contain organic milk protein.
  • Use or refrigerate the paint mixture promptly after mixing it because the milk in the paint will spoil after a few days if left out. Refrigerate them in a closed container and they will last as long as milk lasts (1-2 weeks).
  • Wash hands after use.
  • Safe to wash the paints down the sink.
  • Conforms to ASTMD-4236.

The Benefits of Earth Paints

 

Earth Paints are one of the safest paint products on the market. They are safe for you, your child, and the planet. They are handcrafted, and because of their undiluted purity, these paints have a time-tested durability of thousands of years. Of the many benefits, here are a few….

  • Archival: Pure pigments are the most permanent of all pigments, lasting thousands of years.
  • Superior Quality: There are no added fillers or stabilizers (to increase shelf life). This increases paint intensity and allows the refraction of light to bounce off of pigment particles. Color mixing is also greatly improved without additives.
  • Vibrancy: The pigment particles are larger and more irregular (than synthetic pigments), which allows for more light to pass through the pigment particles and creates a paint that has a higher refraction-vibrancy.
  • Non-toxic and natural: Truly certified non-toxic and earth friendly paint for you and your child (no need to ventilate studio).
  • Durable: Not affected by sunlight, temperature or humidity.
  • You don’t have to worry about harming yourself, your family, and the environment in order to create your art.
  • The risk of acute/chronic diseases from heavy metal toxins is eliminated.
  • You can safely dispose of rags and excess paint in the trash and flush wash-water down the drain.
  • The ONLY type of pigment that is completely unaffected by UV rays (commonly used to protect metal & wood).

 

FAQs

Are the Children’s Earth Paints washable? Skin, furniture, clothes…

 

Earth Paints did a comparison between Earth Paints and “washable” paints and the results were about the same. Both left slight staining with certain colors, but washed out fairly well on white clothes and 100% on other clothes. Occasionally the red color will leave a pink stain (from the iron oxide in the earth). The paints do wash off of skin and furniture.

 

Where do you find the blue earth color?

 

The blue earth is the only color that has been tampered with to get this vibrant color. It is made of 90% earthen clay with 10% mineral added and then heated in the oven. Throughout history, blues in nature were very rare and usually made with precious stones like Lapis Lazuli. These stones are now unsustainably harvested in Afghanistan so we’ve found this alternative.

 

Can you eat them?

 

Earth Paints are not intended for consumption. While the ingredients are simply natural earth and organic milk protein, they won’t taste very good. Children with dairy allergies should also be careful not to consume.

 

Can I use Earth Paints as face paint?

 

While Earth pigments have been used by most indigenous cultures to paint their faces and bodies for thousands of years, these paints have not yet been certified as cosmetic grade so we cannot suggest that you use them as such. They may also be drying or irritating to some sensitive skin types.
