Afghani Lapis Lazuli
Greenleaf & Blueberry Artisanal Handmade Watercolors
Color Name: Lapis Lazuli
Pigment: Genuine Natural Lapis Lazuli from Afghanistan
Color Index No.: N/A
Description: A soft warm velvety blue. Moderate particle size and low to moderate tinting strength. A strong tendency towards granulation. The intensity builds with the applications of layers. An entirely different experience from synthetic Ultramarine.
The cost of pure, artist-quality Lapis is very high, and is the reason that this color has the highest price tag of any that we produce. We use the exact same techniques, principles, and care to create this color as we do rest of our color line. We never use any additives or fillers to bulk out a pigment. This is a full Half-Pan of pure, genuine, natural, artist-quality Lapis Lazuli watercolor paint.
We work with metal Eighth-Pans. They are made of steel, and will therefore stick to magnets. As described by the name, these pans hold one quarter the volume of paint as a Half-Pan, and one eighth the volume of paint as a Full Pan.
Eighth-Pans measure: Length: 1/2", Width: 1/2", Height: 1/8"
All of the metal pans we work with are designed and manufactured by Art Toolkit, specifically for watercolor painting.
Eighth-Pans are compatible with our Travel Palettes in Pocket Palette and Micro Palette sized, which are Art Toolkit Pocket Palettes & Demi Palettes. These palettes are extremely lightweight and packable palettes (about the size of a business card). They are an excellent way to justify carrying along a color palette, no matter where your journey will be taking you.
Eighth Pans are an especially good way to store colors you don't go through as quickly, and they are also a great way to sample new colors.

Please be aware that every monitor and screen displays colors a little differently. We have done our very best to show our colors as they appear in your hand.
