The Darkstar Set, a palette of 6 colors of handmade watercolor paint in a new tin

Sorry, this item has sold.

The Darkstar Set.

There is nothing quite like the star in the night sky of the high desert. This limited palette evokes the deep blues of the night sky with shimmery colors of the stars and the warm rocks of the mesas. Entirely plastic-free, each color is contained in an up cycled bottle cap where it is equivalent in amount to a traditional full pan. Each color is lightfast and non-toxic. The caps have a magnet on the bottom so they stay in place during travel.

The colors in repurposed bottle caps include:
Desert Rose
Amber Ocher
Maya Blue
Green Gold
Desert Star

This tin measures 3.75" x 2.5" x 1". The hinged lid closes easily and securely and could double as a mixing surface. Each pan is held in place with a tiny magnet on the bottom. This set comes with a blank swatch card so you can test your colors.

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. 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. Your order is packaged mindfully, using eco-friendly packaging and shipped to you from our studio in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
