Secret Garden inorganic full Set is part of the Secret Garden Collection curated by Peppercon.
This little travel set is inspired by the flowers and faunas in a spring garden.
This set consists of 10 vibrant colours in half pans that resemble the colours in lavender, cherry blossoms and many other wild flowers that you find in your garden. They are all single pigment artist grade colours made from synthetic pigments which mean they are more refined and easier to mix then natural pigments- perfect for botanical illustrations or plein air.

Here are the colours included:
- Rose Magenta
- Quinacridone Magenta
- Quinacridone Red
- Ultramarine Violet
- Dioxazine Violet
- Lemon Yellow
- French Orange
- Phthalo Green
- Ultramarine Blue

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 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 70% 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 tried 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.

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

Most of the pigments I used have excellent lightfastness rating. Except Rose Magenta and French Orange which have a very good lightfastness rating. The colour index are indicated on the packaging for your information
