Handmade paints work differently from commercial paints, no two are the same. They differ in texture and properties, some watercolours (especially the gem stone like peach agate/garnet/amazonite) tend to sit on the surface of the paper. Each one is hand mulled in micro batches and in multiple layers to ensure each pan is filled. I use my own binder consisting of spring water, kordofan gum arabic, glycerine, local bedfordshire honey and a bit of clove oil.
Each pan is labeled and has a magnet so it stays in place. Each palette is made with freshly mulled paint to ensure you get no old paint. For more details please see my faq.This item is made of pigment and spring water, glycerine, local honey, clove oil.
