Pfeiffer Art Supply is home to non-toxic handmade watercolor paints. We love birds and have decided to name each of our colors after a different bird.
HIS LISTING HAS TWO DIFFERENT OPTIONS:
FIRST OPTION - This silver tin comes with magnetized pans and has room for more pans . (FYI about the magnets - magnets will not stay glued on forever. They come off with wear and tare.) = $148.00
SECOND OPTION - This black tin comes with 24 slots for your WHOLE pans to click in to. These are professional tins that have wells for mixing your paints and is an awesome tin I must say. = $166.00
These paints are made from pure raw pigment and mulled with a binder ( or adhesive liquid) on a glass slab. Then to finish off the grinding we use a mill for each color to break the pigment down even further to achieve a beautiful buttery texture for each color. Each color has its own recipe and has been meticulously made many, many times.
To prepare our vehicle for each pigment (entire liquid content of paint system), we use natural clove oil and in some pigments vegetable glycerin to enhance the binder and performance of our paint. We do not use fillers, brighteners or dryers in our pigments because we want each color to be as pure as possible. We also use the highest qualities of pigments, binder, honey and natural preservative.
Each pan of color takes about a week from start to finish to complete. We allow the color to dry multiple times to shrink and then refill so that you get the most amount of color for your dollar. Since these are made by hand, no two will look alike or "perfect". It is normal for some cracking to appear.
Each pan of color comes individually wrapped and labeled. Each complete kit comes with a place for mixing your paints and a small water brush. Also each pan is magnetized to the tin so that you can buy individual colors from our shop in the near future.
This kit includes 24 HALF pans. Colors are:
Nightingale Natural Red Falcon Red Ochre Kingfisher Red Lacquer Cardinal Medium Red Crimson Toucan Orange Sandgrouse Light Yellow Ochre Goldfinch Dark Yellow Sunbird Sun Yellow Warbler Mayan Yellow Tody Dark Green Parrot Green Tanager Green Turquoise Babbler Blue Macaw Ultramarine Blue Magpie Blue Starling Prussian Blue Cuckoo Lavender Blue Rose finch Ultramarine Rose Poulet Purple Violet Bufflehead Buff Titanium Crane Titanium White Road Runner Burnt Umber Heron Gray Ochre Raven Vine Black
Our shop sometimes updates or replaces colors if certain pigments no longer become available. Keep a look out for new colors shop may release.
(Keep in mind that some colors sell out fast, and if a certain color is out, we can usually get it done for you in a week or so).
Tin can be personalized if you like. Leave instructions in notes on checkout.
Note - Please keep out of reach from small children as the colors can be a choking hazard. These are not for human consumption.
