Yellow ochre  Kaia natural vegan watercolor

This intense warm yellow ochre is mined in the south of France. Yellow ochre is soft rock with a high level of naturally occurring iron oxide. It is the first color that has ever been used for painting, 75000 years ago. This paint contains the exact same pigment as was used in prehistoric times, on every inhabited continent. Ochre once was one of the most valuable trading goods. The ochre used here is natural yellow ochre JFLES Color Index: Y43.

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!
