Afghani Lapis Lazuli
Greenleaf & Blueberry Artisanal Handmade Watercolors
Color Name: Lapis Lazuli
Pigment: Genuine Natural Lapis Lazuli from Afghanistan
Color Index No.: N/A
Description: A soft warm velvety blue. Moderate particle size and low to moderate tinting strength. A strong tendency towards granulation. The intensity builds with the applications of layers. An entirely different experience from synthetic Ultramarine.
The cost of pure, artist-quality Lapis is very high, and is the reason that this color has the highest price tag of any that we produce. We use the exact same techniques, principles, and care to create this color as we do rest of our color line. We never use any additives or fillers to bulk out a pigment. This is a full Half-Pan of pure, genuine, natural, artist-quality Lapis Lazuli watercolor paint.
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.
