Cherry Blossom set (Spring 2018 edition)

Regular price $52.00 AUD $0.00 AUD
Cherry Blossom Set (Spring 2018) is a special edition palette curated by Peppercon.
This little travel set is inspired by the cherry blossoms and the gentle falling petals in spring.
This set consists of 4 colours in half pans. They are all single pigment artist grade colours made mostly from synthetic pigments which mean they are more refined and easier to mix then natural pigments- perfect for illustrations. The Pale Gold and Silver are more opaque then transparent.

Here are the colours included:

- Quinacridone Magenta
- Rose Magenta
- Pale Gold
- Silver

This set also include:

- A small travel tin
- A hand painted colour chart
- A strong magnet has been attached to each pan for your convenience
- All colours will be wrapped individually in foil to protect them during delivery

These artist paints are all hand mulled in tiny batches by me in Melbourne Australia. I sourced and tested pigments from both local and international suppliers to create this collection. I made my own binder which include natural ingredients such as gum, honey and a little bit of natural preservative. Each pigment has its own recipe as they react very differently when mixed, so I have spent hours and made countless batches of test paint to get a good balance of pigment to binder. Unlike the commercial watercolours, no fillers are used in the process, only binder and pigment, in some colours, up to 50% pigment was used. All pans are hand poured and dried gradually in three layers to ensure they are fully filled. It takes at least two weeks for each pan from start to finish depends on the weather and the pigment.

Please note, even though I try my best to make each pan perfect, they won't be, some cracking or tackiness might appear on some colours due to the climate or the pigment. Cracking in the pan or sticky surface will not affect the use or the ability of the paint to re-wet.

WARNING:
While all colours in this collection are made from non-toxic, they are not for human consumption, keep out of reach of small children.

Lightfashness:
Most of the pigments I used have excellent lightfastness rating. Except Rose Magenta which has a very good lightfastness rating. The colour index (if available from pigment manufacturer) are indicated on the packaging for your information
