Important information about KAMA's participation as vendor at the eight international encaustic conference 2014

What is KAMA pigments ?

Kama Pigments is based in Montreal, Canada, and was founded in 1996 by Vincent Deshaies, who still runs the company along with a staff composed entirely of practicing artists

The mission of Kama Pigments is to make archival, high quality materials available to artists at the best possible prices. To this end, Kama Pigments offers a wide array of raw materials for artists interested in making their own paints and mediums (pigments, binders, resins, waxes, aqua-dispersions, etc.), and also manufactures artist-quality, ready-to-use products (encaustic paints, artists’ oil paints, painting mediums, oil sticks).

Kama products are available online, through our distributors and at our Montreal store

Mail orders

In the last years, it has become increasingly difficult to bring our products from Canada to Provincetown due to US customs and US labour laws. As a result we’ve had very little choice but to switch to a mail order system in order to continue having a presence at the conference.

Hence starting in 2014, all orders placed at the conference will be mailed free of charge directly to our customers. Conferees will not be able to purchase our products directly at the conference. If you require products for the conference, please order ahead (see this section)

Shipping on all orders will be free of charge.
A 15 % discount will be offered on all orders placed at the conference.
