(Above: Half-pan vs Mini-pan size)

 

Our watercolours are made from a combination of high quality, artist-grade pigment and binder. Our binder is made from scratch in-house and contains gum arabic, 100% organic pure Australian honey, vegetable-based glycerine, clove oil and distilled water. Amounts of pigment:binder vary depending on the nature of each pigment, with a minimum of 50% pigment used in all batches, and no unnecessary filler. This means more bang for your buck, and offensively pigmented watercolour that will last you a very long time.

Each batch of watercolour is made by hand by mixing pigment with our homemade binder, and mulling by hand. Half-pans are made layer by layer, pouring up to 4-5 times to fill the half-pan to the absolute brim. The curing process for each layer can take several days, meaning each half-pan can take between 1-2 weeks to complete! 

Each pigment behaves differently and has a slightly adjusted binder solution to suit. Sometimes this means that the surfaces of each are different. Some may be slightly tacky, others may crack a little - all of this is completely normal and doesn't affect the quality or outcome of your paintings. 

Our watercolours are available in two formats: Half-pans and sample mini-pan size. Half-pans come with a magnetised base, individual colour label on the half-pan, wrapped in foil with a label. Sample mini-pans are not sold individually, and come attached to a backing card. Half-pans purchased in a set from Pre-Made Palette Sets will come with a free Small sized tin, otherwise tins can be purchased separately.
