This is a handmade, non toxic HALF or WHOLE pan Tanager Turquoise watercolor paint.
This is a mineral pigment fixed (10% manufactured) fixed to a natural Calcium Carbonate base. It is semi-transparent.
(Pigment Only) Composition: Natural Base G7 (74260) Chemical Formula: Si4010(OH)2Mg3-Co3Ca-Cr203 Lightfastness: Excellent Color stable to330 degrees F.
This is 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.
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.
These also come magnetized if you would like to put them in a tin box. (We offer tin kits on Etsy as well). Just let me know at checkout. Each pan of color comes individually wrapped and labeled.
Lovely color, and GREAT customer service. I will definitely shop here again.

This color and the lovely way the paint works made me decide to have a palette of Pfeiffer watercolors only. I've happily bought more Pfeiffer handmade watercolors than any other watercolor paint with the exception of DS.
