Cherry Blossom Set (2020 edition)
Cherry Blossom Set (2020 edition) 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 than natural pigments - perfect for illustrations. The Pale Gold and Silver are more opaque than transparent.
Here are the colours included:
- Quinacridone Magenta
- Rose Magenta
- Pale Gold
This set also includes:
- 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 includes 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. I have spent hours and made countless batches of test paint to get a good balance of pigment to binder. Unlike many 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 to be complete, depending 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 a 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 ingredients, they are not for human consumption. Keep out of reach of small children.
Most of the pigments I used have an 'excellent' lightfastness rating except for Rose Magenta which has a 'very good' lightfastness rating. The colour index (if available from the pigment manufacturer) is indicated on the packaging for your information.
