The Missouri Mountain Set. A handmade watercolor paint set featuring 6 colors
The Missouri Mountain Set features 6 handmade watercolors in repurposed bottle caps and is named for a 14,074 foot mountain peak in the Swatch Range of Colorado. Each of the six caps has a tiny magnet on the bottom so the caps can be rearranged as the artist prefers. A bottle cap holds as much paint as a generous full pan, and offers a larger surface area for more even wear. It is great for artists who like to use larger brushes. The colors included in this particular set are:
Fire (a single pigment, cadmium red hue, bright and opaque)
Golden Yellow (an Indian Yellow hue, warm)
French Ultramarine (a cool blue)
Prussian Blue (one of the first synthetic pigments, warm blue)
(Verona) Green Earth (a beautiful natural green pigment that comes from mines near Verona, Italy)
Burnt Umber (a natural brown)
These colors are beautifully deep, yet transparent and lift easily from the paper. The paints are packaged in a small, 3.75” x 2.5” x .75” new tin. The tin has a hinged lid, which makes for a nice mixing surface. The tin closes easily and securely, making this tiny tin great for travel or as another special collection of paints for your studio.
Ruby Mountain Paint Company specializes in micobatch, artisanal watercolors using pigments sourced from around the world. Our paints are always non-toxic, lovingly hand poured into whole pans, half pans, or bottle caps. These are not commercially made paints squeezed into pans, but carefully made high quality watercolors for all types of artists. Each color is made from pure, artist-grade pigments and our own all natural binder formula, which includes gum arabic, local honey, and a time-honored, essential oil preservative. Each pigment is mulled by hand until it is the proper, luscious consistency. Each pan is poured once, slowly cured, then topped off so that the pans are as full as possible.
