The granulation on this one surprised even me. When swatching it had an undertone of almost a black that faded out to a beautiful earth brown. The wash  is almost a rosy brown. All in all I've been wanting to work with this pigment for a long time and finally used the 50 grams I'd been saving for just this occasion. If you like granulation, you're gonna love this one! Handmade water color is my passion but sometimes finding just the right name is the hardest part of the job! This color is shown swatched on Arches cold pressed Rough, Natural White watercolor paper.

You'll love working with the easy wettability of these colors. It is a luxury handmade artisan watercolor in half pan or dot card size. I created it for use in mixed media painting, art, bullet and bible journaling. Plein air professional artists as well as art students will find it one of the best quality watercolors on Etsy. Because it is an eco-friendly watercolour it contains no honey or animal bi-products and is completely vegan in the classic traditional style. Good quality paper is the secret to getting the most out of your handmade water colors. Getting the best coloration is with a very wet paint brush, especially if it has a tendency to granulate. If you ask if you have enough water on your brush, you don't.

The color is highly saturated and rich. It is lightfast and semi-transparent


Lightfastness: Yes
Staining: YES
Transparency: Semi-transparent

Available in half pans. Full pans by request.

My colors are produced in micro-batches of 6-8 pans with natural, man made and organic materials. The pigments are combined with a proprietary brand of Vegan Binder of gum arabic, organic vegetable sugars, pure essential oil (preservative), and vegetable glycerin. No animal products are used in the production of my handmade watercolor paints making them completely animal-cruelty free and VEGAN. We take great pride in our ability to offer customers the very best in handmade vegan color.

This color would make a memorable gift to an aspiring beginner or professional artist who values unique and high-quality materials!
