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.

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.
