Kremer Pigmente

Wall Paint

These solvent-free, water-soluble wall paints are obtained from natural raw materials and are available in eight different shades. Our raw materials and pigments are processed observing highest quality standards and create silk-matt and high-coverage paint. The wall paint is fast drying, diffusible, breathable and conditionally abrasion resistant. It can be used on all interior wall surfaces (the application of a transparent binder might be necessary). The raw pigments are natural earths, historical cobalt pigments and carbonic pigments. These pigments are characterized by their very high light fastness and their compatibility with almost all binders.

Michael Price: Renaissance Mysteries

The two volumes are an in-depth examination of a lost painting tradition. The books examine how the physical properties of natural and mineral pigments such as azurite, lapis lazuli, malachite, or cinnabar used by artists of the European Renaissance shaped a painting process in which each painting required a thorough plan or composition which began with the geometry of the format (i.e. the proportion of height to width of a rectangle).

#992312 Volume I: Natural Colour

Volume I presents the artist as a painter-craftsman with the preparation of natural colour from rocks and crystals and their application in appropriate binding mediums. The difference in colour quality between natural mineral pigments and modern synthetic paint is examined. Chapters include comprehensive step-by-step instruction for the contemporary artist and conservation scientist on how to prepare and paint with the incomparably luminous colours of the Renaissance palette, as well as the preparation of historical painting supports and grounds.

#992313 Volume II: Proportion and Composition

Volume II, the artist as a creative intellectual, links the painter’s craft with the creative process and elucidates the degree of compositional planning starting with the painting’s rectangular format. The demonstrated evidence for the application of Euclidean geometry is based upon exact measurements of painted surfaces on panels, X-radiographs, and infrared images from paintings. The final chapter concludes with the reasons for the demise of this painting tradition and how industrialization and the standardization of art materials led to a new painting tradition from the nineteenth century.
