The Duo Palette is a wonderfully simple little pan of handmade watercolor paint containing two mineral colors together in one double full pan. The pan lid slides off and could be used to mix colors. This little palette is great for sketching, focusing on tonal variations or for the artist who wants to add simple washes of color.
Offered in two color choices: Luberon Orange Ocher/Maya Blue or Limonite /Blue Ridge Violet Hematite.
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.
Absolutely LOVE this duo!! The colors are beautiful. I also loved the attention to detail and the handwritten note. Can’t wait to purchase more from this shop!
