Besides painting and playing with art supplies, I make my own watercolor paints. I use premium quality artist pigments and micas. The process takes a long time, a few weeks, even months. After grinding the pigment and introducing the binder to it, I mull it by hand. I use no fillers, just pure pigment, emollient and binder. Some colors may contain honey and are a bit more "liquid". I use pure 100% Canadian honey.
The pans are filled 1/3 at a time. To fill the whole pan it takes 3-4 fills, each with drying time of 1-3 weeks in between. Some cracking of the paints is natural (it doesn't affect the quality of the paints). Most of the time I make small custom sets, and since some of the pigments are hard to come by, they are sold in limited quantities. So please sign up to my mailing list if you are interested in being notified when the colours become available.
You can also contact me with custom requests. Depending on what I have in stock, I can create a custom palette for you. With love, Elena
