Twelve Days to Christmas Set (2018 Advent Calendar)
The Twelve Days To Christmas Set is a limited collection of colours curated by Peppercon to celebrate the 2018 Festive Season.
This little travel set consists of 12 seashells of shimmering colours, including 11 new colours and 1 existing colour. This palette has been designed to use as an advent calendar. Each colour is packaged with specially illustrated numbers (by me!) to celebrate the count down to Christmas.
Each of these little shells contains about 1/5 to 1/4 of a half pan, making this set more affordable for everyone to enjoy these colours for the festive season.
All colours are single pigment colours made from mica iridescent/pearlescent pigments.
As this is an advent calendar, colours from this set will be kept secret during this sale!
This set also includes:
- A small travel tin
- An illustrated colour chart matching each day
- 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
- An extra colour chart to list the names of colours in a sealed envelope (to be opened on Christmas Day!)
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 make 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 commercial watercolours, no fillers are used in the process, only binder and pigment, in some colours, up to 70% pigment is 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 depending on the weather conditions 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.
The lightfastness rating is excellent for this set. Except Pink Cloud which has very good lightfastness. The colour index is indicated on the packaging for your information
