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 standard plastic Full Pans. These are durable and lightweight as well, and fit into most commercial travel watercolor boxes.
Our Full Pans measure: 3cm x 1.9cm x 1cm
Full Pans can be thought of as the portable equivalent to a tube of watercolor paint. They are twice the size of a Half-Pan and hold a whole lot of color. This size is a great choice for artists who enjoy working large. Not only does this size pan hold more paint, it also has a greater surface area which can accommodate much larger brushes. This size is also a wonderful way to carry your favorite colors. If you have used up a Half-Pan and wish to replenish a palette staple, a Full Pan can be a nice next-step. Palettes of Full Pans also make excellent flexible studio palettes; they are large enough to be used in a home studio or table-top set-up while allowing you to close up the set and take it on the road.
