The Sunlight Peak Set features 11 handmade, full pans of artist-grade watercolors. This set is a unique, one-of-a-kind set that is named after a 14, 065 ft mountain peak in the Needle Mountains of Colorado. Each of the eleven full pans has a small magnet on the bottom so the pans can be rearranged as the artist prefers. The colors included in this particular set are:
Fire Vermilion Crimson Sun Golden Yellow Green Earth Chrome Green Prussian Blue Plum Antica Green Earth Fawn Ochre

At Ruby Mountain Paint Company specializes in small batch, handmade watercolor paints. Our paints are always non-toxic, lovingly hand poured into whole pans, half pans or recycled bottle caps. These are not commercial made paints squeezed into pans, but carefully made, high-quality watercolors for all types of artists. Each color is made from high quality pigments only, no fillers, and our own all natural binder formula, which includes gum arabic, local honey, and a time-honored, natural preservative. Each pigment is mulled by hand until it is the proper, luscious consistency. Each pan is slowly poured, cured and re-poured so that the pans are as full as possible. Because of the slow curing and re-pouring, the process to make these beautiful watercolors can be rather slow, but worth the wait.
