NATURAL STAIN & DYE PIGMENTS

Copyright © 2000-2010 Kama Pigments. All rights reserved
 

Contrary to our other pigments, these stain pigments are soluble in the medium in which they are used (water, alcohol...). This characteristic allows transparencies as opposed to a surface paint effect, therefore they are largely used as stains in wood finishing. Most of these pigments come from natural sources.
