A true minimalist palette, with the entire color wheel at your fingertips.

This palette comes in a shiny red tin with magnets on the bottoms of the pans so they can be easily rearranged. Each set also comes with a blank swatch card.




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.
