Item details

All paints in the Colonial Palette are made using natural earth pigments from the United States. American natural earth pigments contain more opacity than than natural earth pigments from Europe, and are preferred by artists for their powerful tinting strength.

The colonial palette consists of 7 half-size pans of handmade, professional grade watercolor.

The pigments of the Colonial Palette include:
-Colonial Yellow Ocher
-Colonial Raw Sienna
-Colonial Burnt Sienna
-Colonial Raw Umber
-Colonial Burnt Umber
-Colonial Red
-Colonial Violet

Each pan is magnetized and packaged in a metal travel tin. All orders are shipped with a handwritten swatch card, reusable hand dyed silk ribbon, and a small sheet of 100% cotton rag handmade paper to test your watercolors with.

Part of the secret of Hushwing watercolors is a simple recipe that yields beautiful results. Today’s modern big brand paints are produced using additives which are often toxic and can take away from the vibrancy of the pigment itself. Hushwing watercolors return to the history of paint-making which focuses on minimal ingredients hand-tailored to each individual pigment. Every pan is packed with pigment to achieve a vibrancy and saturation that is difficult to find in many other paints.

During production, pigment is mulled by hand on a glass slab with a combination of gum arabic, honey, and food grade preservative. Each pigment has it’s own unique recipe that has been tested over time to ensure the perfect balance of pigment to binder. All pans are hand poured and dried in thin layers which minimizes cracking and prevents air bubbles, ensuring the pan is as full as possible. However, some cracking is normal and will appear depending on the climate and also the pigment. Cracking in the pan will not affect the use or the ability of the paint to re-wet.

All pigments receive a “Permanent” lightfastness rating and are non-toxic.

I am so in love with my watercolors! This is my first time using handmade watercolor paint and I am now a convert. The range of color saturation pleasantly surprised me. This will open up a whole new way of painting and I am so excited to discover all the new possibilities!

These paints are amazing. After getting a swatch card I realized I needed to go ahead and order these colors specifically and get them into my regular studio palette (although I also highly recommend the other pigments available from the shop). They've become my go-to skin tone pigments, and the violet is great for shadows. They're beautiful, easy to mix, and really rich. Hands down some of the best paints I've ever used. The owner is also really friendly and ships stuff out super quick!
