Natural Earth Paint Introduces Non-Toxic Paint Thinner!!

The Story of Eco-Solve

“When I began this journey of completely non-toxic oil painting 5 years ago, with a little baby in my belly, the only missing link in my artistic process was a completely non-toxic paint thinner. Like most artists, I liked to start a painting with a thin wash of color, then an under-painting, and also lots of drips and splatters (which I always had accomplished using toxic solvents in the past). I searched and searched and found a few natural brush cleaner options but never a high quality paint thinner. So for several years, I resorted to using water soluble oil paints (which aren’t natural and the toxicity is questionable). UNTIL this year! I am personally so excited to offer this product to all artists to make your art process 100% Non-toxic, natural, archival, AND professional quality!” -Leah Mebane, Co-owner & Artist
