Verfmolen Glycerine

Verfmolen De Kat

Verfmolen De Kat (The Paint Mill Cat) has been milling pigments by the power of the wind since 1781. A Dutch institution, colors from this famous windmill include Pannenrood - made from ground Dutch roof tiles - and Ultramrijn blauw - historically called Dutch Gold for its role in Dutch commerce. For those interested in Delft tiles, the color will be instantly recognizable.

This listing is for 200 cc of Glycerine.

There are also 11 pigments from De Kat here as well as a separate listing for Champagne Chalk here. You can use these pigments to make your own crayons, colored chalks, or paints.

Designer and SMP friend, Merel Karhof, created a fantastic project, called Krijtjes - meaning Little Crayons - using De Kat's pigments. For full instructions, supplies and templates, please click here.

Here is a video of the mill, done for the Dutch Festival of Industry and Culture. It is in Dutch, but gives a wonderful overview of this fabulous structure and business.
