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

Sorry, this item has sold.

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 recently adopted our puppy 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.

Fantastic love 💕 will be buying more in future.

Love how the pigments separate, it's such a nice effect! :) Will order other colors!

I purchased 5 paints to add to my growing collection and they are beautiful as expected. The Ruby's Gray is my favorite from this order - transparent and separates out into multiple pigments in a wash - really lovely!! I also ordered primrose which mixes with blues to make such interesting greens. Maya blue highly pigmented and just what I expect for a Maya blue, one of my favorites. Tempest is really interesting - opaque in mass tone but washes out to a beautiful translucent blue. I love my collection of RMPCo paints!
