CMYK is our take on the classic printer's ink palette still used in publishing today. It is a 4 colour process using cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y) and key (K - black). We've chosen 4 pigments to honour this colour system:
C - cobalt turquoise light - pb28
M - quinacridone magenta - pr122
Y - hansa yellow light - py3
K - mars black - pbk11
Combined, these pigments make a wide array of shades, as pictured in the colour chart in the photographs.
They are 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
