The Forest Palette, Large Petal Caps, Square Travel Tin, Set of Eight
Anthesis Arts, Handcrafted Watercolor Paints

***After testing these caps, we felt the paint did not dry as nicely in these caps compared the others. As a result, we will only have paints offered in these petal caps until our supple of caps are gone. We are also offering these at a discounted price. The quality of the paint is the same as in all our other offerings. This is only a result of our unsatisfactory results with these caps.***

This small travel set is custom designed by Anthesis Arts. This is one of our signature palettes. This set is packaged in a small, square travel tin that is approximately 4 x 4 inches in size. The petal caps that contain the paint are up-cycled bottle caps that each hold close to 5 ml of dried paint. You will get a lot of paint in these caps. Each petal cap is magnetized to hold them in place in the tin. Each set also includes a color chart of all eight colors printed/painted on 140 pound watercolor paper. Each petal cap is hand wrapped in foil with a custom label to protect them during shipment.

This set is inspired by dark, rich colors found deep within an old growth forest.

Stellar Mayan Indigo (NA, Lightfastness=Excellent)
Conifer Mayan Green (NA, Lightfastness=Excellent)

About our paints
Each color is hand mulled in small batches to ensure an even mix. We make our own binder from raw products (Gum Arabic, honey, and other ingredients) to produce an artist grade quality paint. A small amount of natural preservative is added to enhance the longevity of the paints. These paints are highly pigmented and can be diluted with a significant amount of water to produce vibrant paintings.

Each pigment is different and therefore behaves differently with the binding solution. As a result, each pigment has its own formula to produce the final product. We strive to create pan watercolors that have a high re-wetting capacity. Some of our paints will remain tacky to the touch due to this quality. Please unwrap each pan/cap carefully.

Not only do we strive to produce a fine, artist grade quality paint, but we also strive to produce a beautiful end product as well. However, our pans/caps will not look perfect. They may crack or fill unevenly during the drying process, which is normal. Each pan/cap is hand poured and dried gradually over a few weeks’ time. Yes, that's right, it can take up to three weeks to finish a single batch of paint. Paint takes a very long time to dry, especially for us in Florida where the air is very humid.

We are always working to improve our paints to provide the best quality paints possible. Your feedback is always welcome.

Thanks for checking out our little shop!
Happy Painting

FAQs

Anthesis is the flowering period of a plant. The point from which the bloom opens from a bud.

We have had a lot of inquiries and requests for individual paint offerings. While we do not offer individuals at this time, we are working on that as a long-term goal for the shop. Our focus has been creating these sets to be unique and different from other handmade paints that are available. Each of the sets we offer are the result of hours of searching and testing to get the right colors for the artistic expression we were aiming for. We are starting to get in a great routine and schedule where we can start to think beyond these sets. Follow us in Instagram for updates and announcements on the availability of individual paint offerings.

Short answer: Yes. Long answer: Most of the pigments we use have been rated as 'non-toxic' by any outside entity. A few of the pigments we use have not. However, those that have not been rated ‘non-toxic’ have no documented toxicity or health issues to humans. Additionally, we use all natural and organic ingredients in our binding solution. For the purpose of watercolor painting, our paints are perfectly safe. We choose to work with natural pigments, ochres and minerals mined from the Earth and avoid the use of modern synthetics or known toxic pigments. If for some reason that ever changes, we will label and advertise the paints accordingly.

Depends on the request. At this time we can accommodate requests to reserve one of our color palettes when they are available. Changes or alterations to the palette colors may not be as easily accommodated. Depending on current supply and demand, we may also be able to fulfill requests to add one or two more colors to an order outside the signature color palettes offered. Best way to know is to ask. Simply message Angelique via Etsy Conversations and she'll respond as soon as possible. All reserved and custom orders must be paid in full within two days of being posted.
