Stoneground Paint Co. creates its handmade gouache by combining the world’s finest pigments, as well as premium French chalk, with a binder made from water, gum arabic, and honey.
Stoneground defines modern colours as those developed and discovered after 1704. This was when the accidental discovery of Prussian Blue occurred. The colours Stoneground classifies as such, contain organic and inorganic pigments and are typically characterized by their intense and bright appearance.
