Paris Green Sifter

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Paris green was used as a popular pigment in artist’s paints because of the brilliance of the green. In the 1900’s it was used as an insecticide for produce where it was blended with lead arsenate. This heavily toxic mixture is said to have burned the trees and the grass around the tree.
