The Icelandic Collection. A handmade watercolor paint set featuring 3 mineral colors


The Icelandic Collection.

The Icelandic Collection features three mineral pigments collected from the foot of an Icelandic volcano, where many minerals are abundant. These colors are granular, soft and transparent but with patience can be coaxed to create very dark hues. These natural mineral paints have a wonderful texture to them. Each of the three pans has a tiny magnet on the bottom so they can be rearranged as the artist prefers. There are a few pan size options for this set, which are described below.

The colors included in this particular set are:

Icelandic Green/ Brimisvllir Green
Icelandic Red/ Snaefellsjoekull Red
Icelandic Yellow/Heydalsvegur Yellow

These colors are available as a collection of three in:
-plastic full pans, with a new tin
-plastic half pans in a new tin
-metal mini pans in a new tin
-metal half pans, no tin

These colors are also offered as individual pans in that section of the shop as well.

The plastic half pan and plastic full pan sets are packaged in a small, 2” x 1.5” x .75” new tin. The tin has a hinged lid, which makes for a nice mixing surface. The tin closes easily and securely, making this tiny tin great for travel or as another special collection of paints for your studio. The metal half pan sets without a tin come as just the three half pans, at a slight discount from buying the three colors individually. The mini pan set comes in a tin with a sliding lid that measures 2" x 1". The compact measures 2" across.

Ruby Mountain Paint Company specializes in micro-batch, artisanal watercolors using pigments sourced from around the world. Our paints are always non-toxic, lovingly hand poured into whole pans, half pans, or bottle caps. We make high quality paint and art supplies for all types of artists. Each color is made from pure, artist-grade pigments and our own all natural binder formula, which includes gum arabic, local honey, and a time-honored, clove oil preservative. Each pigment is mulled by hand until it is the proper, luscious consistency. Each pan is poured once, slowly cured, then topped off so that the pans are as full as possible. Your order is packaged mindfully, using eco-friendly packaging and shipped to you from our studio in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
