Desert Star.

This listing is for a half pan, full pan or bottle cap of handmade Desert Star watercolor paint. This color shifting mica paint shifts from blue to purple depending on the angle of the light. This color is a synthetic and ethical mica. It is non-toxic and lightfast.


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.

Wow, when you see this color available... BUY IT. Holy smokes, it’s even more beautiful than the photos. Rewets and goes on like a cosmic dream. Outstanding handmade quality and customer service! Paints are buttery smooth and generously pigmented! The shop owner answered my question immediately during the purchase process and is genuinely committed to her craft. Will most certainly buy again!
