Ancient Earth Pigments

Ancient Earth Pigments is a specialty art store, owned and operated by Atelier Nelson, LLC. We specialize in rare and hard-to-get tools and materials for artists working in all kinds of media, using time-honored techniques for making paints from dry pigments. Our focus is on historical pigments and techniques from the prehistoric to modern eras, so our website is an excellent resource for artists wishing to elevate their knowledge or their craft.

In addition to our pigments, tools, and supplies, we also have a blog in which we post tutorials, projects, and product information. Our YouTube channel contains how-to videos for making different kinds of paint using our products, other tutorials, and paint-along videos from spectacular landscapes.
