Finding clean, non-toxic art supplies can be challenging, as many paints, crayons, and markers are problematic with chemicals and preservatives. This past Christmas, a dear friend introduced me to Brusho paints, and not only are they non-toxic, they are absolutely gorgeous to use, and are among our almost-four-year-old's favorite art supplies.
The Brusho set features wild, exotic colors that come packaged as loose powder. An artist spreads the powder on a canvas of choice, and applies water--either in a brush or with a spray bottle or even a vinegar mix--and deep, rich colors are the result.
You can purchase these on Amazon for $76 for a set of 24 paints. And while that may seem like a heft price tag, consider you are purchasing high-quality, non-toxic product that lasts a very long time due its powder base form. Powder paint goes a long way! Less is often more.
Try them out and send us your pictures! Happy, clean, non-toxic painting!
