This palette comes in two options: plastic full pans in a new metal tin or metal half pans in a handmade, heirloom quality wood King's Creek Palette.

The King's Creek Palette is handmade especially for Ruby Mountain artists by Lars in Germany from recycled oak wine bottles. One side is magnetic so you can add or remove metal pans of various sizes. The other side has a white enamel coating for mixing. This case is made of reclaimed oak wine barrels with a linseed oil finish. It measures approximately 4.5" x 2.75" x .75" high when closed. The mixing area measures 4" x 2".

This palette holds a variety of pans: 3 metal full pans plus 8 mini pans OR 16 mini pans OR 12 round mini caps OR 4 bottle caps.

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. 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 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.
