I have been seriously considering doing some restoration painting. There are many suppliers but I found these sites to be particularly good.

http://www.earthpigments.com/index.cfm This site caters to both artists and craftspeople. They offer natural paints, pigments, lime products and more.

http://www.naturalpigments.com/shop_main.asp This site targets artests but has a good selection of traditional pigments. Also casein paints and varnishes. This site also has a forum.

Hello,

I think Kremer operates in the U.S. out of New York. Very good source for historic stuff.

Greetings,

Kremer looks great, even a water powered mill. http://kremerpigments.com/

Jade sent me a link to Kirby who still sells red lead and white lead, on the rare occasion these are still used. http://www.kirbypaint.com/

Penetrol is a product made by the Flood Company.

From the manfacturer's website:

PENETROL® Oil-Based Coating Additive is a versatile low-odor additive to improve penetration, adhesion and flow of oil-based paints, stains, varnishes and primers.
Improves penetration and adhesion to compensate for weathering on surface
Improves flow to reduce brush marks; extends open and working times
Restores luster to faded, weathered fiberglass
Inhibits rust on metal surfaces
Dry Time: Allow 12–24 hours dry if used on bare metal when applied in optimal temperatures of 10°C | 50°F to 30°C | 86°F. When added to paint, may increase the dry time of the paint. High humidity or temperatures below 10°C | 50°F may prolong drying and recoating times.
