Lapis lazuli pigment is made from natural lapis lazuli that has been ground and impurities have been removed.
It also does not dissolve when mixed with water or solvents, and has a grainy, sand-like texture.
It is best used with animal glue (膠, Nikawa), but can be mixed with various painting mediums to make your own watercolors, acrylics, and other paints.
※Pigments are for painting. They are not intended for use in cosmetics, pottery glazes, or as dyes for cloth.
