This homemade, handmade metallic, shimmer watercolour PEARL GOLD is the most delicate, finest of the bright golds - it is basically a spider web made into pigment. The colour of air just at first sunlight, of whispers and magical sanctity. It appears almost translucent at direct light, whereas at an angle of course it has a hinted, whimsical quality. It appears thinner than its darker counterparts, excellent for the effects of sparkle or enchanted morning mist. It works equally well on bright and dark surfaces and because it#39;s so fine, it#39;s perfect for calligraphy.

PLEASE NOTE MY SWATCHES ARE DONE ON FABRIANO EXTRA WHITE PAPER, on other paper the paint may appear different - such is the magic and majesty of watercolour paper.

The snail mail conditions have normalised a bit since the start of the p*ndemic, but please know that although I normally send my orders out the next Wednesday (unless some of the new paints are still too soft to behave), once the shipments sail, I have NO CONTROL over them once they leave my hands and it can either go lightning speed or, true to its name, snail pace. The tracking number can be used on any track site - by my experience entry ports and customs take the longest, after that it#39;s just another minute or two. For any concerns about shipping, do not hesitate to contact me for further advice!

A wee bit about my paints: by now I have sampled almost all of the pigments one can think of and have decided that earth and rust suit me best: naturally ground soil like sienna and umbra, and oxides, which offer more than one can imagine! I am endlessly curious about different versions of the same named product, so I always, when researching the new region, sample Raw Sienna first.

Of course not all can be blacks and browns and ochre, and getting unnaturally vibrant paints is just part of my curiosity: I spend my night mixing this and that, trying new combinations, experimenting and trying to tame various new pigments. My paints are 85%+ pure pigment, which makes their lightfastness absolute, the rest means they are held together by an organic binder, my own homemade honey and myrtus glycerin. Their naturality makes them unpredictable – some dry like pepper, some never dry – but I like that about them. They are unique and individual. With each new batch, I try to invoke a theme and invent as many new paints as possible, to keep my regular customers thrilled :))) I repeat some of the older recipes, because they never fall out of demand, but mostly, with each new batch, I invent.

Because the paints are often made as a unique trial, returns or exchanges are unfortunately not possible.

I am always open for new ideas, constructive criticism, suggestions and popular demand! :D

There is something wonderful, knowing that these combinations and pigments have been around since the dawn of time and somewhere, long ago, someone just as adventurous wandered around and explored with a very similar palette in their thick wooly pocket :D
