Earth 6 - Handmade Watercolor Kit

from 46.00

This pocket set includes special, historical earth pigments from the Mediterranean region. Including Yellow ochre (PY43) from Morocco, Pompei red earth (PR101), a warm burnt umber from Cyprus (PBr7) and a green earth (PG23). Verdaccio is made according to an old Ceninno Cennini recipe of green umber and black iron oxide (PBr7 + PBk8). Morellone (PR101) is a powerful, opaque iron oxide pigment that tends towards deep purple. In medieval painting, this pigment was often used in the under painting of azurite blue skies.

Packaged in a mini metal tin for mixing with a tiny color chart. Each pan has a magnet on the bottom to hold paints in place while you are traveling. Option to purchase with a size 6 Tintoretto synthetic bronzo pocket brush with detachable handle that converts into a protective cap.

Each tin packaged with original marbled paper by Florentine artisan workshop Giulio Giannini e Figlio.

Made from premium pigments, pure gum arabic crystals, local acacia honey, rosemary essential oil and a natural preservative. Every batch of paint is mulled by hand on a glass slab and poured into pans. Unlike commercially "extruded" paints, each pan is poured multiple times and dries over two to three weeks. This intensive process creates a very pigmented, easy to activate paint that fills the complete volume of the pan.

A. Gallo Colors are 100% handmade. Pans may contain imperfections like small bubbles and minor blemishes. This is a sign of the human touch that goes into making each and every pan and does not effect the quality of the paint.

Half pans present a choking hazard and are not intended for use by small children. Please also be mindful of your pets. All cadmium, cobalt, lead and mercury free.
