GROUND BRIGHT MONTHLY PIGMENT SUBSCRIPTION

GROUND BRIGHT MONTHLY PIGMENT SUBSCRIPTION

12.00 every month

GROUND BRIGHT MONTHLY PIGMENT SUBSCRIPTION

Shipping included. Ships everywhere in the world. Tracking not available. Please contact us if you do not receive your first pigment within 4 to 6 weeks (within U.S.) or 4 to 8 weeks (international).

GROUND BRIGHT is Wild Pigment Project’s pigment-of-the-month subscription offering. Each month, open your mailbox to discover a letter from us and a glassine pouch of a pigment tenderly gathered from a beloved outdoor place by an artist-forager luminary. Read more about each month’s pigment by signing up for PIED MIDDEN, Wild Pigment Project’s monthly newsletter.

These mineral and botanical pigments are an invitation to you to connect tangibly with the places where the pigments originate, and the people who gather them, as well as to learn more about their natural, cultural and geologic history. Suggestions for ways to interact with the pigments, in the form of recipes or activities, accompany each packet. 

Heidi Gustafson of Early Futures, Scott “pigment hunter” Sutton, and Melonie Ancheta of Native Paint Revealed are some of our early featured participants, bringing you treasured ochres, home-grown persicaria tinctoria , and other pigments luminous to behold. In 2020 we’ll be featuring several more mineral pigments (chalk from the U.K.! Tennessee red earth!) and also a few exciting lake pigments, which are botanical dyes fixed into a dry pigment form.

22% of the net proceeds each month go to organizations promoting the stewardship of land and cultures connected to the land, chosen by that month’s featured pigment artist.  

Just how much pigment comes in the monthly subscription? You’ll receive between 5 and 7 grams of pigment material each month. We’re usually on the high end of the scale, but occasionally there’s a pigment so special that we want to send it out to you even if there’s a little bit less of it available to us through our gracious contributors. You’ll definitely have enough to make a nice amount of watercolor paint, or to store in a dram glass bottle for your viewing pleasure.

Pigments come with safe handling instructions that should be followed closely. Wild Pigment Project is not responsible for adverse health reactions to Ground Bright pigments.  

Please contact us at info@wildpigmentproject.org if you have questions or suggestions.

Thank you for your support and for being part of this project!
