Indigo Kaia natural vegan watercolor

This lighter indigo paint is made with the famous ‘Mayan blue’ pigment. This deep blue color lends itself very well for skies and water. Mayan blue was originally invented by the mayan people around 500 before Christ. They used it for murals and painting pottery for example and also for rituals and offerings. The pigment is made of a white clay with natural dyes bound to it from the indigo plant. The process of embedding the dyes into the clay under high temperature makes the color stable and lightfast. 2000 year old Mayan artefacts that were painted with Mayan blue, still have their deep blue color. 

About the paint

Kaia Natural Watercolor is completely natural, non-toxic, vegan and made with love. The natural pigments I use in Kaia Natural Watercolor are made of earth pigments (crushed rock) or white sediment clay that is colored with botanical colorants. The latter are called Mayan pigments and the method to produce them was invented by the Mayan people around 500 BC. The synthetic pigments that paint is normally made of are usually derived from petroleum, a very polluting product. They are essentially tiny plastic balls that aren’t biodegradable and that end up in the water system when you flush your paint water through the sink.

Professional artist quality

The pigments I use in Kaia Natural Watercolor have the highest possible ranking of lightfastness, which means they don’t fade over time under the influence of light and/or oxygen. Also the paint contains between 85% and 90% pigment as opposed to only 10% to 40% in paint of hobby or student quality. There are no fillers being used. Because of these qualities Kaia Natural Watercolor is of professional artist quality. The paint is also very suitable for beginners and children though!
