As per our conversations, half pans each of the following watercolors:
This is a wabi sabi palette and the discounted price is reflected in the listing.
:: Wabi sabi ::
These are half pan watercolor paints that have slight and sometimes overt rough surface textures, cracks, or who have shrunk due to variances in temperatures. Although their surface appearance may look more rough, this in no way effects the quality and performance of these paints.
The wabi sabi aesthetic is a traditional Japanese philosophy of finding beauty in imperfection.
** Please note that two of our watercolors (Imperial and Naga) are very intensely saturated paints. These watercolor hues will stain brushes and so we recommend using a separate watercolor brush when painting with these colours if you would like to prevent them from tinting your favorite brush.
As a gift, each curated palette also comes with an exclusive Wildthorne hand letterpressed artisan swatch card that nestles snugly within your watercolor palette ready to be painted by you. Our letterpress cards are crafted one at a time with sustainability and environmental responsibility in mind. The paper is 100% tree-free cotton made locally in the United States as a byproduct of the cotton garment industry. With a soft luxurious and tactile feel to the touch, it is a surface that invites your artistry.
Our lovely mineral watercolor paints have a beautiful granulation and can be layered from thick to thin. Artist-grade and lightfast, each pan is hand-poured to exacting traditional recipes and techniques in our studio using the highest quality earth pigments, and natural watercolor binding medium made from distilled water, honey, glycerine, and the sap of acacia trees.
