KREUL Triton Acrylic Natural Pigments Marker Ink

Natural Pigments: an alternative of natural origin

07/22/2021 |

It's wonderful how nature plays with colours and always seduces us into new ideas. Why not use this unique intensity of natural pigments and create products that are in the spirit of sustainability? That is the basic idea behind the KREUL Natural Pigments. With the colour shades Curcuma and Graphite, we rely on pigments that are obtained directly from nature. In this way, we developed an alternative to paints with synthetically produced colour agents. Curcuma shines bright yellow, Graphite has a light metallic shimmer. The beauty of nature works in two product variants, in the KREUL Triton Acrylic Marker Natural Pigments and in the KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink Natural Pigments. There are deliberately coordinated with each other as the basis for a concept that focuses on sustainability and forms an artistic unity.


Which natural pigments can create this special colour experience? For the Curcuma shade, we use the dye from the rootstock of the turmeric plant (curcuma longa root extract). This medicinal plant is well known from the kitchen and is used in the cosmetics industry. Above all, however, it is a renewable raw material with excellent dyeing properties. The yellow is gently glazing and makes light backgrounds shine wonderfully. Curcuma is a cheerful shade that adds warm accents to artwork. The shade Graphite contains graphite, a mineral from the element carbon. The dark grey is opaque and has a slight metallic shimmer. A great feature that can be used for cool effects in the picture. How about shimmering hatchings for contrast? Great things can be created here with exciting textures!

Wonderful colour gradients with the KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink, sweeping drawings on top with the KREUL Triton Acrylic Marker - fantastic when products complement each other perfectly. Tone-in-tone, a unity is created that becomes an eye-catcher with different techniques. The fact that ink and marker are coordinated with each other can be used not only artistically. The concept makes a contribution to the future. Empty markers can simply be refilled with the ink. This increases the life of the marker, saves unnecessary plastic and ensures unrestricted use of ink. Simply unscrew the body of the marker and fill in the acrylic ink with the pipette. Scribbling can then continue.

How can even more resources be saved? By using materials that are already available. For example, the plastic of the KREUL Triton Acrylic Marker Curcuma and Graphite consists of 70% recycled plastic. This is a recycled material that has already been used for consumer goods. The cardboard packaging of the set also consists of up to 94% recycled material. The KREUL Acrylic Marker and the KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink are manufactured in Hallerndorf, Upper Franconia. This allows us to produce fairly and safely. This not only ensures consistent quality of the paint, but also reduces transport distances.
