Greenleaf & Blueberry Artisanal Handmade Watercolors
Color Name: Mayan Blue
Pigment: Mayan Blue
Pigment Index No.: N/A
Description: True indigo blue. A green-blue hue with moderate to low tinting strength. A tendency to some flocculation, but still subtle dispersion in wet-on-wet washes. Wide value range. Some granulation, especially on more textured papers. A completely different pigment and hue from our previous Mayan Blue.
This is the first truly authentic Mayan Blue pigment that has been produced in 400 years. It is made using natural South American Indigo and clay from the same source the Ancient Mayan peoples used, with permission. This pigment only exists as a result of tireless research and exploration my its makers, who have also returned the pigment to its people. According to testing, the pigment appears to be very lightfast.
We work with metal Eighth-Pans. They are made of steel, and will therefore stick to magnets. As described by the name, these pans hold one quarter the volume of paint as a Half-Pan, and one eighth the volume of paint as a Full Pan.
Eighth-Pans measure: Length: 1/2", Width: 1/2", Height: 1/8"
All of the metal pans we work with are designed and manufactured by Art Toolkit, specifically for watercolor painting.
Eighth-Pans are compatible with our Travel Palettes in Pocket Palette and Micro Palette sized, which are Art Toolkit Pocket Palettes & Demi Palettes. These palettes are extremely lightweight and packable palettes (about the size of a business card). They are an excellent way to justify carrying along a color palette, no matter where your journey will be taking you.
Eighth Pans are an especially good way to store colors you don't go through as quickly, and they are also a great way to sample new colors.
