Handcrafted with the mixed media artist in mind, these unique pigment bars are created by Traci Bautista in small limited edition batches.

NEW TO THE SHOP!! The PIGMENT BARS are handmade with a blend of organic plant waxes and a mixture of natural earth pigments and micas. Some have different variations of metallic sheen and multiple pigments.

They have a beautiful, rich creamy consistency and deposit a lot of color. They can be used as a resist with watercolor and brushed through stencils plus a plethora of mixed media techniques.

Each collection is one-of-a-kind. There are limited quantities and they tend to sell out.


PIGMENT BARS can be used in a variety of ways…

  • as wax resist with #tracibautistacolor handcrafted artisanal watercolors 
  • For glazing and shading effects use a hog bristle brush
  • with stencils and a scrubber brush or sponge
  • freestyle mark making ~ Create  thin and thick lines
  • mix with linseed or walnut oil for washes
  • melt and use a palette knife for textured effects
  • coat mixed media paper with Golden Super Matte Medium as a base
  • sgraffito marks with a stylus 
  • paint onto paper, fabric, or canvas
  • perfect for your art journal or sketchbook
  • great to layer with WATERMEDIA AND FLUID ART techniques.

You also get access to bonus painting workshops with your purchase.
