Pigments

It all started with pigments. Pigments have been in existance since the earliest times; they were used as cosmetics by the Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and the Mayans. Pigments, which occur naturally in minerals, or in animal or plant organic materials, are the basis of all colours. For over 50 years, Pebeo has manufactured pigments for oil, acrylic, watercolour and gouache paints, together with Pebeo binding agents they are the essential raw materials for all those who wish to create their colours themselves.
