Limited Edition Reclaimed Earth Colors Set

We are very happy to introduce our Reclaimed Earth Colors set. Every speck of pigment in these tubes has been painstakingly reclaimed from waters tainted by iron released from mines. 

We collaborated with engineer Guy Riefler and artist John Sabraw to develop Gamblin Reclaimed Earth Colors. The purchase of this oil paint set supports a hard-working team of teachers and students making the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers healthier ecosystems. 

Gamblin is the first company to make paint, or any product for that matter, with these pigments. We ignored our development costs, set the price low, and are donating over 20% of our sales on the set to support their project. 

 

Tell me more about the colors? Are they safe? Lightfast?
Iron oxides make beautiful, lightfast, and safe colors. Our Reclaimed Colors are as safe as any other iron oxide based color, such as Mars Black and Venetian Red. 

Brown Ochre: Naturally opaque and warm with a golden undertone. Lightfastness II (Very good)

Rust Red: In its transparency, it carries the warm colors of rusty water. From the tube and in mixtures, Gamblin Rust Red is exactly what you'd expect: an earthy red-orange. Lightfastness I (Excellent)

Iron Violet: We're betting this will be many artists' favorite Reclaimed color. Meet the first mauve Gamblin has ever made. Straight from the tube, it's a deep, earthy violet. Add white and it becomes the violet you see in clouds at sunset or dawn. Lightfastness I (Excellent)

 

Sometimes being responsible means taking responsibility. 
We admire the courage and determination of John, Guy, their team of students, and community members who've volunteered their time and access to their land.

These fine people have stepped-up to heal ecosystems and hard-working communities long-abandoned by industries that took what they wanted and left the consequences for others to carry. You inspire us and we are proud to stand with you. 

Always forward. Together.
