The Precious Blue set contains the colours from the Geology collection curated by Peppercon.
This little travel set contains 5 premium historical mineral pigments that have been highly regarded by artists since medieval times. These colours are literally made from gem stones!!! Blues were considered rare pigments in the past and were very expensive (and they still are!). Only the richest and wealthiest could afford a painting with blue colours in it.

These colours are made from some of the best mineral pigments I source both locally and internationally.

Here are the colours included:

- Vivianite
- Chrysocolla
- Azurite
- Malachite
- Lapis Lazuli

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 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 finished 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 might appear on some colours due to the climate or the pigment. Cracking in the pan will not affect the use or the ability of the paint to re-wet.

Some of these colours contain Copper which could be toxic if swallow in great quantity. Do not eat or drink when you use them and make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after usage.
- They are definitely not for human consumption
- Keep out of reach of small children and animals.
- Please consult medical professionals in case of emergency.

These historical pigments have an excellent lightfastness rating. The colour index is indicated on the packaging for your information.
