Here at Sinopia we pride ourselves in offering the finest in raw and prepared materials for all types of craft and art projects. While the dry Pigments have an alluring quality to them and the idea of laying gold leaf onto a surface prepared with Bole-Clay may prove to be enticing, getting started can often appear to be a daunting task.

Here at Sinopia we don't believe that using our materials should be based on trade secret methods that whispered from a master to an apprentice. We think that the art & craft world is only enriched by access to information, which allows the artists to contribute to the ever expanding material knowledge base.

Below, we have assembled a set of basic recipes that serve as a starting to point to explore Sinopia's Pigments and Materials. For more in-depth instruction, we offer seminars that delve deeper into the subject of pigments.
