Gatsby Set

Regular price $52.00 AUD $0.00 AUD
The Gatsby set is a limited collection of colours curated by Peppercon.
This little travel set consists of 4 half-pans of colours inspired by the 1930s Art Deco glamour and poetic words of The Great Gatsby.

“Look at that,' she whispered, and then after a moment: 'I'd like to just get one of those pink clouds and put you in it and push you around.”


― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

All colours except Pink Cloud are single-pigment colours. Pink Cloud is made up of a synthetic pigment with a lilac pearlescent pigment.


Here are the colours included:

- Pink Cloud
- Green Light
- Iridescent Gold
- Magnetite

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-grade 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 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 to complete each pan depending 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 a 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 ingredients, they are not for human consumption. Keep out of reach of small children.

Lightfastness:
The lightfastness rating is 'excellent' for this set except for Pink Cloud which has 'very good' lightfastness rating. The colour index is indicated on the packaging for your information.

Thank you for visiting my shop!
