Introducing Natural Earth Paint: Ancient, Non-toxic and 100% Natural Art Supplies for Children and Artists
Premiering at the New York Now show this year is Natural Earth Paint, a woman-owned, Oregon-based business with a full line of natural, non-toxic, and earth-based art supplies, face paints and craft kits for children and fine artists. Stop by our booth #5421 to try out these unique earth paints, learn the interesting stories behind these ancient recipes and how they can change the world.
This seven-year-old business was the brainchild of Leah Fanning, a professional artist, mom and environmentalist. After becoming pregnant with her first child and realizing she would have to paint throughout her pregnancy, she removed all toxins from her studio immediately. This pushed her to dive into extensive research on ancient paint making recipes, Renaissance techniques and a long period of experimentation and testing. She spent the next two years hand-crafting her paints from natural earth pigments that she collected in the woods around her.
When her baby turned 1 she learned that almost all conventional children’s paints that say “non-toxic” on the label, actually contain many toxic preservatives, carcinogens, petroleum-based dyes and heavy metals. Her mission was now clear - to create very high quality, vibrant paint and art supplies that was truly non-toxic, natural and sustainably made. The next year she learned about the frightening toxicity in all children’s face paints and soon “Natural Face Paint” was created from all organic ingredients and earth pigments – just as our ancestors have done for thousands of years.
Seven years later, Natural Earth Paint has a full line of hand-crafted products including Eco Craft Kits, Earth Paint Kits, Natural Egg Dyes, Natural Face Paints, bamboo paint brushes, and professional fine art supplies. Natural Earth Paint is committed to an eco-friendly business model as reflected by our prestigious Gold certification from Green America - the highest rank for a green business. We are the winner of the 2016 Cribsie and we donate to environmental and humanitarian causes continuously. We walk our talk and use 100% biodegradable and recycled packaging that is all locally made.
