The swatches below contrast our three types of Azurite, all artist quality pure, genuine, natural Azurite pigments from the same source. These demonstrate the wonderful variety of hues that come from natural pigments. Our single-batch Cyan Azurite is on the right, our usual Azurite is on the left, and the current batch that this listing is for is in the middle. It expresses characteristics of each, displaying a more cyan hue of the single-batch with the deeper tones of our more usual Azurite batches.
It is important to note that Azurite contains copper, and should therefore not be consumed in large quantities (I hope this is obvious already). Never ever eat our colors, keep out of reach of children, and use only as intended.
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 1.5-1.75cm
Our Shells are roughly equivalent to 1/5th of a Half-Pan. Shells are 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.
Hope you enjoy!
