Natural pigments

This range contains mineral pigments (ochre, earth, umber, siena) extracted in quarry, which undergo only a process of grinding, baking and mixing. Regarding our ochres, Ocres de France is today the last autonomous producer in Europe, thanks to its quarry located in Gargas and its factory in Apt (Vaucluse).
The natural pigments have an excellent resistance to light, a good colouring power and they are very covering. On the other hand, they have colors less vivid than synthetic pigments.
