Gumnut and Foliage set- Wildwood Collection

Regular price $104.00 AUD $0.00 AUD
Gum Nuts & Foliage Set is part of the Wild Wood Collection curated by Peppercon. These colours are the sequel to the Mushroom & Feather set. The earthy tones of this palette design to bring out the textures and rawness of the natural object.

This set consists of 9 colours in half pans that are more unusual but full of characters, great for sketching and tonal work. They are all single pigment artist grade colours made from natural pigments.

Here are the colours included:
- Violet hematite
- Slate grey
- Nicosia green earth
- Antica green earth
- French turquoise
- Dragon's blood
- Burnt sienna
- Graphite
- Barite white

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

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 60% 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.

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.

Most of the pigments I used have excellent lightfastness rating. Except French Turquoise which has a very good lightfastness rating. The colour index is indicated on the packaging for your information.
