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


{watch video above to hear more about the pigment bars and see paint swatches} 

NEW TO THE SHOP!! The PIGMENT BARS are handmade with a blend of waxes {organic soy & organic beeswax} 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.
