DERBY is a set of 5 colours, all custom blended by WLWC. The first 3 colours are traditional watercolours and the last 2 are gouache hybrids:

Cherry Bomb - a deep orange toned red that turns almost pink with more water.
Honey Baby - golden honey yellow, a custom blend of some beautiful natural ochres 
Boo Bear - a wispy brown that ranges from dark to light with more water
Purple Haze - a gouache hybrid, deep bright purple (that is IMPOSSIBLE to photograph!)
Mint Cream - another gouache hybrid, this one a soft pale green mint with undertones of grey

These paints are made from artist grade pigments that are rated good to excellent in light-fastness. They have been hand mulled into creamy-dreamy submission using my own all natural homemade binder base that has been tested and retested to allow you to easily re-wet your pans. Please keep in mind this base is all natural ingredients and contains trace amounts of clove oil which acts as an anti-mold agent to preserve the life of your paints and honey, which allow you to re-wet them quickly when you're ready to paint!

Due to the nature of handmade watercolours, some pans may contain cracks, tiny air-bubble holes or itty bitty sinkholes in the middle. I give my pans ample time to cure before wrapping and shipping them. To prevent this as much as possible, each pan is filled and dried in stages to minimize overall shrinkage. Also note that depending on the humidity of my environment, your environment, and everywhere your package goes in between, some pigment combinations can hold on to extra moisture and arrive a bit tacky/sticky. This also does not affect the paint itself, but please let it air dry once you unwrap it to re-harden
