Beam Paints - Complete Set of 54 Handcrafted Indigenous Organic Plastic Free Paintstones
By request we have come up with a full set of all of our Paintstones! It varies a bit this way and that as we develop new ones and say good bye to old favourites but it always has about 54 with an enamel tray palette that fits all of them, and a paper map with all the names in ojibwe and with pigment codes. Includes the new northern lights colours:)
Please allow a few weeks to fulfil

Paintstones are lightfast pigments, tree sap, and gum Arabic.
When I make paint I think about my Dad a lot, he taught me when I was really small to identify hematite and look for paintstones. He kept them in his art bag in a little cloth wrapper, and when he needed paint he brought them out and prepared his paint for ceramic bowls, drums, or rocks.
I really wanted something of my paint making practice to share the tactile joy of the physicality of paint, and this is it!
These little jewels are also about our values and support our respect for the earth and being plastic free. They are wrapped in beeswaxed cloth or St Armand handmade paper with paper labels identifying the color name and are our answer to halfpans!
