Natural pigments—those obtained from plants, animals, and minerals—have been used since prehistoric times. They’ve transcended history and even been used to create some of the most iconic paintings from the likes of Raphael, Matisse, and other prominent painters.
Though the use of these types of hues died down after the invention of synthetic and petroleum-based pigments were introduced, many artists still prefer to work with these naturally dyed colors as they’re environmentally-friendly and free of harmful toxins.
