Greenleaf & Blueberry Artisanal Handmade Watercolors

Description: Smooth, ruddy color with a wider value range than our regular Red Ochre. Fine particle size and even application.
For our Shell Pans*, we use natural seashells, nature's answer to the pan. They are lightweight and durable, though have a greater chance of chipping if used roughly.
Our Shells, being a product of nature, vary in size, but usually measure between 2-3cm
Our Shells are roughly equivalent to 1/5th of a Half-Pan, depending on color. This is a traditional and historical method of storing color. Cave artists and medieval manuscript illuminators alike chose to store their paints in shells. Our Shells are small enough to help even the most extreme minimalist justify carrying along a dab of color. Another reason that we developed this option is as a way for you to sample our more rare and expensive colors in a more affordable format.
* We have re-standardizes the Shell sizes we use to reduce waste. Shell colors will be smaller than the one pictured here (I haven't had time to re-shoot photos!)

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.
