This listing is for one mini Altoids travel tin with 5 half pans of handmade watercolors. Each pan has a magnet fixed to the back for convenient arrangement or replacement. Each tin is coated inside with a white waterproof gloss to protect against rust and provide a handy surface for color mixing.

Tin measures 2 1/4" x 1 1/2 x 9/16"

The colors included:

1. Venetian Red
2. Lemon Yellow Ochre
3. Prussian Blue
4. Ultramarine Blue
5. Titanium buff

Note: *This tin can be customized!* Use the "Request custom order" button below the photos or send me a message to see which colors are available for custom order at the moment and select 5 colors for your own personalized palette. Not all colors may be in stock at all times, not all colors are eligible. Ability to customize will rely on the availability of the pigments in stock at the moment. Please allow for extra time, custom orders may take up to two weeks to complete and ship if the chosen colors need to be mulled and poured fresh to allow for time to cure.

All other accessories shown in the listing photos are for display only, and are not included. Some of the example photos above are of my personal kit and are not the exact same paints you will receive.


Rivervale Watercolor's paints are hand mulled the old-fashioned way on a glass slab from pure pigment and a natural honey-based watercolor medium. No fillers or additives are ever used. My goal is to provide high quality artist-grade paints at affordable prices for artists of all varieties.

Most of the pigments I use are natural earths, and each has it's own unique attributes to explore and bring to your paintings.

Each watercolor pan is filled to the top at least twice during the pouring and curing process. Some colors are prone to slight cracking in the pan, please rest assured this does not affect its usability or its properties on paper. Different pigments shrink slightly as they dry in the pan to varying degrees, but all pans have been filled the same way.

The pans themselves measure 1.6 x 1.4 x 0.9cm

I do my best to keep my workspace clean, but occasionally paint spills as I fill colors and stains the pan. Often I can't get the stains off, or I accidentally miss a very small spot. This won't affect your paint in any way, other than the outside of the pan not being quite pristine to look at. Just consider it extra decoration. :)

Most of my paints are single pigment colors and the majority are lightfast. Non-lightfast colors or colors comprised of more than one pigment are clearly marked as such. I rely both on information from the pigment manufacturers and my own extensive tests to provide the most accurate information possible about each individual pigment's properties.

Please remember to read my policies (found in the FAQ section) before placing your order. Shipping normally takes place within 5-7 business days. Returns are not accepted, but if there is an issue with your order please contact me so I can help you.

Additional policies

Watercolor Care:

. Pre-wet your watercolors with a drop of water a few moments before using for best results.

. Your paint may become slightly stickier or drier depending on either humidity or heat and may even crack a little on top. This will not affect the usefulness of your paints. Allow to dry completely after using to prevent mold, and store in a cool dry place out of reach of children or animals.

. Do not expose your paints to extreme conditions.

. Display finished paintings appropriately regardless of material quality. Display out of direct light, and use acid free paper and UV protective glass or spray if possible.

. Keep the plastic shield and padding in place while traveling with your watercolor tins to protect them.

Sizing details

Please look carefully at the measurements and material information on a listed item, so you will be well informed before making your purchase. Measurements are taken across the widest points of an item.

All of my items are handmade, and no two will be exactly the same. Please keep in mind that there will be slight variances in each piece.

Most pigments used are considered non-toxic or of low toxicity, but some pigments are toxic and should be handled with caution. Most have no known safety hazards in watercolor form when used as directed, but nevertheless should not be ingested or used as body paint, and should still be kept away from young children and animals.

Those considered toxic will have that information available in the listing. Don't eat or drink while painting, and be sure to wash your hands after. Don't use if you have an allergy to clove oil, gum arabic, glycerin, honey, or the listed pigment.

My home is smoke-free. I do own cats, they aren't allowed contact with my paints and I am as clean as possible, but I can't guarantee safety for those with cat allergies.

Site Problems:

Etsy as a platform has a habit of implementing features or running tests without any notice to shop owners, and without adequate explanation for customers.

As a seller, I unfortunately have no control over this, and may not be aware of any issues until a problem arises. If you don't understand something, please let me know! I may be able to better explain some of the possibly confusing site options or features to you, and if it's a bug, I can report it to Etsy.

Choosing the "gift" option for an order at checkout will mean the packing slip will print without visible prices, like a gift receipt.

If you shop on Etsy using the mobile app, be sure you are updated to the latest version in order to be sure all features are working correctly.

Right to refuse business and Artist's personal affiliations:

As a private artist, I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason. In the rare event this happens, you will receive a full refund (if payment has already been made at the time) and the sale will be cancelled.

Communication is very important to me, and I do my absolute best to respond to my customers in a timely manner. Please be aware that I may be reluctant to accept custom work or offer special courtesies like item reservations again if, in previous interactions, communication on the customer's side has been inadequate, rude, or set deadlines have been missed without notice or reasonable explanation.

By commissioning or purchasing an item from me, you agree to abide by the policies listed above.

Artist's personal affiliations:

In the interest of full transparency, because I know there are those out there who really care about where they shop and who they support (or do not support). I am a Christian, and I strive to run my business as well as my life in a way that is honest and pleasing to God. :)

Colossians 3:23 ESV Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.
