New York, NY 10012
Village Voice's Description
An artist restoring the Sistine Chapel will eventually need the perfect paint to touch up God, and Kremer Pigments may be the best place to find it. The store, catering to artists and restorers of masterworks, has 500 pigments, which can be mixed into 125 million different color nuances. Based in a tiny south German town, 1,200 years old, Kremer grinds and sifts their own pigments at their water-powered mill. As a perk to NYC customers, the shop offers classes on how to mix paints, so you, too, can repaint the Mona Lisa.
