Our Terra di Colori Watercolor Paints are our newest offering.Many, if not most, paints contain harsh, toxic chemicals that are harmful to humans, animals and our beloved home, planet earth. As herbalists, artists and earth lovers, we wanted to bring a remedy to what we see as a big problem. Hence, after an inspired and exciting Labor, we’ve given birth to Terra di Colori - Land of Colors!
Many of our botanical colors were grown in our gardens or widgathered on, around or very near, our central Maine farm. They are entirely plant based. Some have been outsourced, from carefully chosen sources.
Our mineral pigments come directly from the earth. They are soils/minerals that have been sustainably sourced from around the world.
