We are very proud to present our pastel watercolor set – 15 colors on a zinc white base that gives this special softness and smoothness we all sometimes need so much! The magic behind this set – it is almost impossible to get muddy tones. Zinc white softens everything in a very special way giving beautiful new soft pastel tones with different undertones.
This is a compilation of our existing pastels ranging from very light to brighter giving you the possibility to mix desired intensity without losing milky softness.
These are 15 colors in a tin with a sliding lid:
- butterfly, peach blossom, flax, bat, fly, and mint from misty garden set
- great tit, bullfinch, green woodpecker, forest pigeon, and partridge from our winter birds set
- Reed buff from our dragonfly set
- Cherry blossom
- and zinc
Please note – zinc-based watercolors dry unevenly during our summer. We try to mix them during winter, but those that were curing in warmer months might have cracks. Please wake them up as usual and cracks might get filled in your climate. And it can be also that after using perfect half pans they can crack because of dry weather.
All our watercolors are artist-grade with a minimum lightfastness rating 6 out of 8 (scaled to last 50+ years without significant change). They mix nicely with other natural and human-made pigments. For best performance add a few drops of water some minutes before starting to paint. 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 the top note and sandalwood in the base note.
