:: Winter Pastel ::
The Winter Pastel collection is a specialty limited edition set comprised of Icelandic minerals, genuine Amazonite, and Serpentine gemstone watercolor paints that come in a portable metal tin along with a natural sea sponge. Recalling the gentle and frosty tones of icy cold water, the delicate appearance of pink petals, and the olive hue of moss on crags and rocks to the far North.
These rare Japanese milled mineral watercolor paints have a beautiful granulation and can be layered from thick to thin. 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.
*** Please choose carefully, our gemstone watercolor paints are accessible to all to purchase and paint with, however, these paints act decidedly different than factory or synthetic watercolors. Because these paints are handcrafted from natural earth minerals and crystals they have a consistency like wet sand and do not disperse or soak into the paper as conventional watercolors do, but rather they hover more gracefully on the surface, much like water lilies. We suggest that you experiment with finding a balance with water ratios, and build up the gemstone colors in layers so that there is a deeper saturation of color. There are no refunds or exchanges for this item.
** subject to availability. please note that if you purchase this item in combination with any made to order watercolor palettes, your entire order will ship within the timeframe of around 2-3 business weeks for pre-orders.
