  2. Durrow pigment set

    Pigments used in the Book of Durrow - (about 600AD).
    This set includes minium, indian yellow, viridian and carbon black plus enough gum arabic to mix up all these colors.

    Historically, the yellow pigment would have been orpiment but for a starting kit, the cost is prohibitive. We find that the indian yellow is close enough in color.
