:: Primaries ::
In homage to my cultural heritage, soft lotus leaves that have been dried in the warm sun enfold our watercolor paints in hand wrapped packets of beloved foliage. Ornamented with local seasonal flowers they arrive presented as a gift from our studio deeply connected to nature. Lightly scented parcels from floating lotus leaves that once hovered gracefully as disks in the water they envelop our watercolors in a journey to you waiting to be brushed.
In this Primary series three free form droplets of artist-grade, lightfast watercolors in the primary hues of Rouge (red), Mimosa (yellow), and Bleu Primaire (blue) are contained within. Carefully handcrafted when mixed they provide a wide rainbow array of possibilities and color values for you to create with and explore.
These watercolor paints have a rich creamy consistency that can be layered from thick to thin. Each droplet is hand-poured to exacting traditional recipes and techniques in our studio using the highest quality pigments, and natural watercolor binding medium made from distilled water, honey, glycerine, and the sap of acacia trees.
Our eco-friendly lotus leaf wrappings are 100% biodegradable, each packet and watercolor droplet will be rustic and unique, no two will be alike and sizes will vary. Tied with natural plant fibers and local flowers and greenery, each gift-wrapped droplet is entirely compostable. Sent in a recycled kraft paper envelope, these watercolors are a part of our ongoing commitment to preserving the environment for future generations to come.
