Gerda’s pink. Pigment mix (numbers PY43, PR101, PR287) in half-pan watercolor. Fits in all palettes designed for half-pans.
Here comes the story. Last week Gerda, Agnese’s 8-year-old daughter comes to us with her piggy bank money and our color mixing chart. And asks: how much would it cost to buy this particular watercolor. We had a long discussion that she can get this shade by mixing gold ochre and Mayan red, but she kindly insisted that she wants to buy ready mixed her most favorite color. She can afford also “that gold” and “that may”, but she NEEDS HER orange-pink. And here we go. Gerda’s pink is ready now.
Mixes nicely with other natural and human-made pigments. For best performance add a few drops of water some minutes before starting to work with it. It will reactivate the pigment and will be more fluid.
All our watercolors are handmade from pigment or pigment mixes, binders, and essential oils as conservative. Binder is made by ourselves from gum arabic, natural honey, and water. Our watercolors have a flowery scent, with lemongrass as top note and sandalwood in the base note.
