I painted a mural with Bio Paint, a plant-based natural paint. it smelled like aromatherapy oils it was wonderful, felt like I could drink the stuff. It did not have a harsh feeling on the hands or smell.
However, Bio Paint have gone out of business now. There are two other natural paints. Volvox, a clay-based natural paint and Livos, another plant-based natural paint. I have used Volvox it is easy to paint with drys quickly and easy to wash off. Clay paint absorbs moisture balancing humidity and getting rid of odours. Livos is known to be good for oils, varnishes and finishes etc.
I would recommend using natural paint any day.
I have had this since 2013. So don't know if it will last yet but it has never needed sharpening.
It is a cross between a pen and pencil made of special alloy. It does eventually run out but takes so long that it shouldn't.
Problem is we get given so many free pens will we ever be able to put it to the test.
Absolutely wonderful to have a tool we use in our everyday lives that it not meant to wear out.
I got the Fuji Xerox Solid Ink Printer in 2012. Really, it is amazing, no cartridges, no waste! There are just these solid blocks of soy ink, that are arguably eatable and can be used as crayons, although a little expensive. After printing there is nothing left except a little excess ink which you can put in the compost. It prints brilliant colour images and can print on more types of recycled paper than other printers.Read more
