This listing is for a half pan, full pan or bottle cap of handmade Chinese Vermilion watercolor paint. This color is a lighter, warm pinkish red. It is non granulating and can vary from opaque to translucent. This color is created from a single pigment, PY3, and has a lightfastness rating of average. It is a wonderful color for florals and skin tones, and mixes well with other colors. The name of this color comes from its long history in China as a color for lacquerware. This is a non-toxic substitute for traditional vermilion as traditional vermilion is made from cinnabar which contains mercury. Eliminating toxins in our lives and our homes is always a good thing, which is why Ruby Mountain only makes non-toxic watercolors. (No cadmium, cobalt, lead or mercury.)
A small magnet can be added to the pan, at no cost, to allow it to stick to a metal tin, if the artist prefers. Please be sure to select that option.
Ruby Mountain Paint Company specializes in micro-batch, artisanal watercolors using pigments ethically sourced from around the world. Our paints are always non-toxic (cobalt, cadmium, mercury and lead free), lovingly hand poured into whole pans, half pans, or bottle caps. These are not commercially made paints squeezed into pans, but carefully made high quality watercolors for all types of artists. Each color is made from high quality, artist-grade pigments and our own all natural binder formula, which includes gum arabic, local honey, and clove oil as a preservative. Each pigment is mulled by hand until it is the proper, luscious consistency. Each pan is poured once, slowly cured, then topped off multiple times so that the pans are as full as possible.
