The Complete Secret Garden Collection Set
The Complete Secret Garden Collection Set is an unique artist palette curated by Peppercon.
This little travel set is inspired by the flowers and fauna in a spring garden.
This set consists of 16 vibrant colours in half-pans that resemble the colours in lavender, cherry blossoms and many other wild flowers that you may find in your garden. They are all single-pigment, artist-grade colours made from synthetic pigments (except the Mayan colours) which mean they are more refined and easier to mix then natural pigments. This makes them perfect for botanical illustrations or plein air. This vibrant palette is presented in a lovely vintage cigar tin I found at a local market. This palette is definitely a one of a kind.
Here are the colours included:
- Rose Magenta
- Quinacridone Magenta
- Quinacridone Red
- Ultramarine Violet
- Dioxazine Violet
- Lemon Yellow
- French Orange
- Phthalo Green
- Ultramarine Blue
- Mayan Red
- Mayan Blue#2
- Mayan Indigo
- Mayan Green
- Mayan Yellow
- Mayan Violet
This set also includes:
- A Vintage cigar tin*
- A hand-painted colour chart
- A strong magnet has been attached to each pan for your convenience
*As this is a vintage item, some scratches and small dents are expected and are part of its vintage character!
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 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 'very good' to 'excellent' lightfastness rating. The colour index is indicated on the packaging for your information.
