This listing is for one half pan of 4%, a yellow mica shimmer pigment with a golden shimmer.

It was the idea of and also named by @alexandrasartinsanity 💕 A large portion of every pan sold ($10 per half pan and $20 per full pan) will be donated to Camp Ooch. This is a privately funded, nonprofit oncology camp for kids who have been affected by pediatric cancer can just be themselves around other kids who UNDERSTAND.

If you guys don't know Alexandra, she is a force! Her first order to me was a gift from her mom for her one-year cancer-free anniversary. This cause and this camp are near and dear to her heart and I wanted to do something to honour that.

So why 4%? Pediatric hospitalizations due to cancer cost 5x more on average than any other pediatric condition, but only 4% of government funding for oncology goes towards pediatric cancer. Chemotherapy treatments designed for adults are forced on children and enough research hasn't been done because... There's almost no funding!

This colour isn't limited edition. As long as I have the pigment and this keeps selling, the profits will be donated to Camp Ooch.

This shade is lightfast and can go on thick for a more opaque look. Because it is a mica pigment, it will also work well on darker papers. It can be applied with more water for a less opaque look. It has been mulled with our own tried and tested watercolour base. 

Please note that shimmer pigments are more prone to air bubbles in the pans. This has been filled in layers to prevent this as much as possible but bubbles will not affect the use of the paint.
