Ruby Mountain Paint Co. began as a dream to make artist-quality, non-toxic watercolors easily available to more artists. Pure pigments are sourced from around the globe, specifically chosen for their color properties, lightfastness and application in watercolor. These dry pigments are mixed with my own all-natural watercolor binder formula, which is non-toxic and created with traditional materials. Using gum arabic, local honey, vegetable glycerine and clove essential oil, Ruby Mountain watercolors rewet easily, are highly pigmented and have a buttery texture. I work in small batches and use only lightfast, non-toxic pigments. This year I am working towards being as sustainable as possible, so I use minimal packaging, try to eliminate plastic and reuse when possible. Each batch of paint is mulled by hand, poured in layers and slowly cured. An artist myself, I carefully select the colors in each palette and set, choosing hues I hope will inspire you to create more art. As a small paint maker, I have the flexibility to create custom colors and palettes based on your needs and desires. I love to develop relationships with my customers, providing colors and paints I think will work with their current artistic focus and providing supplies that inspire them to create more. If you have a custom request or palette idea, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Check out my new blog for behind-the-scenes updates, art history tidbits, watercolor tips & tricks and more!
