Artists Pigments

For many years W.G. Ball Ltd have manufactured a range of artist’s pigments which is constantly increasing. 

Many of these colours are manufactured from formulae dating back over one hundred years. We are also willing to attempt to manufacture ancient recipes supplied to us on a one-off basis, or with view to production for general sale. This service is subject to stringent confidentiality.
