Limited Edition Colors

The natural world is rich with color.  It is everywhere all the time- in the stunning displays of sun risings and settings, the the shocking plumage of birds, those bright fragile wildflower petals, in rainbows, reflections, and the ground beneath our feet.  However, many of these colors are unsuitable for the artists' palette.  

We have constructed a line of lightfast natural artist-grade colors covering the different areas of the spectrum.  But we are artists and explorers, and therefore have an eye always wandering from our palette.  We are always testing new colors, putting them through the rigors of our studio to see if they will become one of the colors that we offer.  Some colors, for a host of reasons, do not pass our test.  However, the ones that do will show up from time to time as Limited Edition colors.

We offer these colors when we have them.  Some we fall in love with and make over and over again.  Others are offered once before we move on.  We do not offer these on any kind of set schedule.  Below, you will see a few colors that we have offered in the past...
