Greenleaf & Blueberry Artisanal Handmade Watercolors
Color Name: Green Opalite
Pigment: Green Opalite
Pigment Index No.: N/A
Description: A lush olive green with a wide value range for a natural green, but still a weak tinting strength. This color has rather large pigment particles that occupy the upper end of what is suitable for watercolor, and as a result give it a texture you can both see and feel. This color will handle very differently from a synthetic color.
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.
