:: Winterberry ::
Celebrating the joy of the season with earthy and luxurious gemstone watercolors that add a touch of cheer and a festive holiday mood.
Handcrafted from raw gemstones, this watercolor enlivens the eyes with graceful beauty.
Our ‘Winterberry’ and ‘Evergreen’ are both Opalite gemstone paints that have a unique textural finish. Both have been sourced from the wild and rugged desert landscape here in the Western United States. Lovely in tone, and gentle but saturated in temperament the 'Holiday Winter' watercolors can be mixed and blended into a variety of beautiful combinations to decorate the page with luster and light.
* Please note that this listing is for one half pan of ‘Winterberry’ watercolor only. If you would like to purchase our ‘Evergreen’ hue you can find it available here:
Our rare gemstone 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.
*** 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. We suggest that you add water in a gentle balance being careful to not drown these gemstone paints while working with them and to build up the colors in layers for a deeper saturation of color. There are no refunds or exchanges for this item.
*** subject to availability. If you would like a small tin with complimentary letterpress to nestle your watercolors in you can find them here.
