Gamblin Reclaimed Earth Colours Set

The process of creating these paints begins with collecting contaminated water from the Mississippi and Ohio River in large tanks. To neutralize the water’s acidity, a base is added, then oxygen. This causes the dissolved iron to crystalize and settle. The result: clean water on top and non-toxic iron oxide pigment on the bottom. The clean water is returned to the river where it is safe for aquatic life and the iron oxides are dried into lightfast and safe artist pigment. The pigment is heated to various temperatures to achieve each colour.

Brown Ochre is naturally opaque and warm with a golden undertone. This pigment isn’t heated to the extent of the other colours, so it retains the deep yellow/brown hue of the raw iron oxide.

In its transparency, Rust Red carries the warm colour of rusty water. From the tube and in mixtures, it is exactly what you’d expect: an earthy red-orange.

Meet the first mauve colour Gamblin has ever made. Straight from the tube, Iron Violet is a deep, earthy violet with a unique texture. Add white and it becomes the violet you see in the clouds at sunset or dawn.

Gamblin is committed to reducing the use of plastic and unnecessary packaging wherever we can. They designed this set without plastic shrink-wrap. The sleeve and insert are recyclable, and the structure of the packaging has a function; it’s a primed wood panel made in Oregon.
