This listing is for a half pan, full pan or bottle cap of handmade Blue Ridge Hematite watercolor paint. This warm, reddish purple is opaque covers well but is always beautiful in washes where its iron pigments separate and sparkle. It has a natural shimmer. It is one of my absolute favorite natural mineral pigments because of its sparkle.
A small magnet can be added to the pan, at no cost, to allow it to stick to any metal tin, if the artist prefers. Please be sure to select that option.
At Ruby Mountain Paint Company, we specialize in small batch, handmade watercolors. Our paints are always non-toxic, lovingly hand-poured into whole pans, half pans or 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 pure, artist grade pigments and our own all natural binder formula, which includes gum arabic, local honey, and a time-honored, natural clove oil preservative. Each pigment is mulled by hand until it is the proper, luscious consistency. Each pan is slowly cured, poured 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 is rather slow, but worth the wait.
this color is so unique and pretty! I can't wait to use it!

Deep heavily pigmented color, gorgeous to use. Also, I got a bottle cap size for the first time and it’s so good for bigger brushes! I want everything in bottle cap size now :) thanks Kate

Lovely color. Very rich and beautiful color. I paint a lot of birds and animals and this color will work well with fur and feathers. I opted for the little magnet on the back which sticks itself right into a little tin I'm taking with me on a trip to Iceland. They included a couple samples too. I look forward to shopping at Ruby Mountain Paint Co. again in the future!
