Ruby's Gray. Half pan, full pan or bottle cap of handmade watercolor paint


Ruby's Gray.

This listing is for a half pan, full pan or bottle cap of Ruby's Gray. This dark gray is inspired by the traditional Payne's Gray, yet separates magically in washes. This color was inspired by the color of my canine studio companion Ruby, who passed away in December 2019. In honor of Ruby, $2 from every pan of Ruby's Gray, in every size, will be donated to a dog rescue or charity. This time the donation will be made to All Aboard Animal Rescue in Fort Collins, Colorado. This is a rescue that helps move dogs from high kill shelters in Texas and New Mexico to foster homes here in Colorado where they can be adopted. We adopted our dog Stella from them. More information about who they are and how they help animals can be found here:

A small magnet can be added to the pan or cap, at no cost, to allow it to stick to any metal tin, if the artist prefers. Please be sure to select that option. Bottle caps are equivalent in amount of paint to a generous full pan.

Ruby Mountain Paint Company specializes in micro-batch, artisanal watercolors using pure 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.

What a great color! Love how it granulates & separates. Bonus that some of the price goes to an animal shelter

So good. It's magical. A lighter, wonderful variation of a great Payne's Gray.

This will be a gray to order when Kate makes more! It is a rich, gray blue cool tone. A favorite for many uses.

I love this color so much! What a perfectly wonderful paint, so versatile. I was so happy to see it in stock again, and I had to get more. Highly recommended.

this color is so fun to play with. dark at first but when thinned down or spread out nice blue and brown shades separate out, creates a great effect.
