Over the Reservoir Watercolor Sketchbook filled with Shizen paper. Handmade, coil bound


Over the Reservoir Watercolor Sketchbook filled with Shizen paper.

This watercolor sketchbook was handmade in the Ruby Mountain studio with 12 pages of thick, 100% cotton 140lb rough textured Shizen watercolor paper. All Shizen papers are handmade in India from 100% recycled materials using a pollution-free process. Shizen Professional Watercolor Paper is an acid-free, 100% cotton, white watercolor paper that is both internally and externally sized. It has a rough texture, best for loose styles of painting.

These books measuring 5" x 7" with an original illustration on the cover. Also I have one available bound on the right side for those who are left handed. The back cover is thick chipboard. The coil binding allows the book to lay flat while you paint.

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.

I just recieved my watercolor journal - got it 6 days after I hit the "pay now" button, so that is super fast in my book, and it is GORGEOUS. The paper has this amazing texture to it that I cannot wait to paint on! The cover is beautiful, and I am just so glad to have bought it. I purchased paints as well, and I'm more excited about the journal - how often does that happen?! (Not often, to me, anyways! That's a huge testament to how beautiful this book is!) :D

Oh. My. Gawd. I am in love with this sketchbook! Beautiful cover and the paper is amazing!
