This is a handmade, non toxic HALF and WHOLE pan of Cuckoo Lavender Blue 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 polysulfurated B29 (77007) Chemical Formula: Si4010(OH)2Mg3-Co3Ca-Al 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.
