Good Honey Handmade Watercolor
The pigment is hand milled into a paste paint using a watercolor binder and traditional muller and slab methods. There are no machines here. This process takes time (and love) and every paint is different. Each recipe has been handmade and tested by me. I am quite picky when it comes to watercolor supplies and I won’t offer anything I wouldn’t use myself. The media (binder) is made from a unique recipe of natural high grade gum Arabic, local organic honey, vegetable glycerin, distilled water and clove oil (a natural preservative to prevent mold growth and deter bugs). Good Honey Watercolor is naturally sticky and is formulated to prevent cracking and hard, dry paint. The honey and glycerin are added to aid in reactivating the paint.
Pro tip: most pans will benefit from a few drops of water being added to them several minutes before you intend to use them to wake them up. Some formulations include a small amount of a synthetic ox gall to help the paint flow. No brighteners, thickening agents or fillers are ever used. I have created a product I am intensely proud of and I hope it brings you so much joy to use it!
Please note: This is artist grade paint and is not intended for children. Watercolor pans are small and may be a choking hazard.
