The shop also sells raw materials for making paints, glue and gelatin for gesso and gilding, gum arabic, resins, oils, and metallic powders. Venetian-made items like glass beads, leather aprons, incense and ceramic incense burners, glass lettering pens, and unique brass hardware make this a great gift shop as well as a useful resource for people who make beautiful things.
Finding an address in Venice is not simple. An address is simply composed of the sestieri, or district, and a randomly assigned building number. Google Maps will often get this completely wrong.
Arcobaleno Pigmenti is located at San Marco 3457 Venezia... which is actually on Calle de le Boteghe, at the northern corner of the Campo Santo Stephano.
A second location was recently opened in the Dorsoduro neighborhood at Calle della Chiesa 682. Phone +39 041 5236818
