Greenleaf & Blueberry Artisanal Handmade Watercolors
Color Name: Mayan Blue
Pigment: Mayan Blue
Pigment Index No.: N/A
Description: True indigo blue. A green-blue hue with moderate to low tinting strength. A tendency to some flocculation, but still subtle dispersion in wet-on-wet washes. Wide value range. Some granulation, especially on more textured papers. A completely different pigment and hue from our previous Mayan Blue.
This is the first truly authentic Mayan Blue pigment that has been produced in 400 years. It is made using natural South American Indigo and clay from the same source the Ancient Mayan peoples used, with permission. This pigment only exists as a result of tireless research and exploration my its makers, who have also returned the pigment to its people. According to testing, the pigment appears to be very lightfast.
We work with standard white plastic Half-Pans. They are therefore durable and lightweight. They also fit into most metal bijoux boxes and watercolor travel boxes.
Our Half-Pans measure: 2cm x 1.7cm x 1cm
Half-Pans are a great choice for artists who are going for a minimalist approach and tend to seek all of their supplies in tiny lightweight versions and for artists who love to carry as many colors as possible while still managing space and weight. They are also a nice way to try out a color that is new to you.
