The Utility Palette features 10 colors of handmade watercolor paint in two different sizes of caps. This set is named because of its utilitarian nature. This set contains bottle caps of primary colors plus brown. The mini caps hold colors a few other colors to round out the palette. 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 as well. The colors included in this particular set are:
Fire Sun Ultramarine Chocolate Brown Plum Thunder Snow Mayan Green Genuine Indigo Magnetite Gold Mica
The paints are packaged in repurposed Altoids tin. The tin measures . The tin has a hinged lid, which makes for a nice mixing surface. The tin closes easily and securely, making this tin great for the artist who desires a utilitarian palette while still having a color of color choices.
Ruby Mountain Paint Company specializes in micro-batch, 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.
