UNIVERSAL PIGMENT TINTERS for Water Base OR Solvent Base

Every pigment is different in chemistry to another and this is why some

pigments work better in paints than others. Some pigments only work in

solvent based paints and others for water based paints. We have paint 

tints that cover all types of paints, including candy paints and colours as

well as colour tints and additives for metallic paint finishes and other

paint tints or paint special effects. We can mix our tints into your paint

to save you the guess work! We have now reduced our minimum order

from 1kg tins now down to just 50 gram jars as we have more small

scale and indie artists using these universal tinters for solvent & waterbase.

 

PURE PIGMENTS Handmade for Artists

There is a long tradition in the art discipline of only using earth pigments or formulated pigments that exactly match earth 

pigments in color, hue & chemical equation. The traditional

pigments used by artists are limited to about 100 different

colours like Prussian blue and cadmium yellow, red oxide

or Raw Sienna etc...  Our pure art chemistry pigments match

earth pigments exactly in chemical equation, colour, weight

and mixability. Best of all our artist pigments have less impact 

on the earth, are easier to wet out and are much more cost 

effective than earth pigments. Picture right is one of our stockists

in japan specializing in pigments for ink and some for painting.

We make pantone pigments in epoxy, acrylic, and 20+ other base

INKS and Alcohol Inks 

Inks can get technical, and making really good inks is not easy!

Not all pigments and colourants will work as an ink. Settling and

colour seperation becomes the next problem, followed closely by

getting the perfect viscosity and drying times! It really is an exact

science, our laboratory can work directly with you to manufacture

the perfect inks with the selected attributes and performance you

require. We stock a range of Alcohol & Solvent inks.

 

SOLVENT ACRYLICS Pigments & Tints

Acrylic resin (thermosetting & Cast Acrylics) and Poly/Acrylic blends

can be very hard to colour. We have had 20 years experience working

with these more complex resins and also making colour for these 

resins. We currently work with Australia's leading Art, Jewellery,

Homeware, and Furniture manufacturers that cast and pour in this

medium, as well as commercial and industrial applications with

these resins. At Lucid Colour we have stock colour range or we can

develop new colours and provide testing for catalyst reactions and

temperature changes or exothermic factors when using our colour

additives in these free radical reactions and redox systems.
