Handmade watercolor made of pure pigment. The color is lightfast and transparent. Personal painting experience: celadonite is not dark on its own but it adds nice granulation and gravity to other colors, especially transparent mayan green. Important note: mineral watercolors are different from classic watercolors.If you are not familiar with mineral watercolors, please read below. 1 mineral watercolors are essentially made of crushed minerals (solid rocks) and have granulation that can range from subtle to coarse. Mineral colors are a great choice if you like texture in your paintings. 2 mineral watercolors require pre-wetting before they are ready to use.
Add 2-3 drops of water to the pan and wait for 1-2 minutes before using the color. Keep paints wet while painting by adding drops of water or by using a watercolor spray bottle (it helps keep paints wet without flooding them).Mineral watercolors are great in washes where you can see and appreciate the unique hues and granulation. The granules will stay on paper and will not fall off - the binder is strong enough to keep them in place. 3 mineral watercolors are less saturated than earth pigments or synthetic colors. Some of them remain subtle and pale even when applied in multiple layers (see siderite or glauconite).
Mineral colors blend well with all classic colors and you can combine them to create deeper or brighter hues and color progressions. These are professional grade watercolors.
