Kama Pigments

KAMA PIGMENTS began in 1996 in a Montreal basement apartment with very modest means but an ambitious mission: to make raw materials available to artists. Later expanding – from many requests – to ready-made visual arts products like Kama Pigment Oil Sticks.

Kama Oil Colours

Kama oil paint is formulated to offer colour in its purest state. Each one of their colours has been individually developed using pigments chosen for their finesse, luminosity, and stability, in order to reach the optimal saturation for each colour. Plus they’re prepared with walnut oil, reducing yellowing.

Kama Oil Sticks

Kama Pigments’ oil sticks are made from walnut oil and natural waxes that are mixed with our selection pigments. These products therefore contain no solvents. These sticks behave essentially like oil paints and are compatible with all the products, support and mediums designed for that technique.

Kama Oil Mediums

Understanding the use of oil painting mediums is essential to many techniques, Kama Pigments proudly leads the revival of traditional techniques with their line of oil painting mediums. This range of products is strengthened by traditional knowledge and adapted to the needs of 21st century artists.

These are art supplies with a special story – a rich history, unusual choice of colour, exceptional process in manufacturing, or championed by a handful of enthusiastic connoisseurs.
