Professional Handmade Watercolour
Deep warm amber, fantastic for all sorts of Autumn scenes, can be made transparent or deep depending on the amount of water used.
Our process starts by using only the finest hand-picked Kordofan Gum Arabic Lumps and carefully blending with distilled water, this mixture is left for a few weeks until fully dissolved, we then strain this mixture through unbleached Muslin bags to remove any impurities like straw and sand which is naturally found on the gum when it falls onto the ground from the Acacia tree
Once fully strained we then add in the vegetable glycerine, a touch of biocide and gently blend using one of our mixers to ensure a smooth, fluid consistency
Once made this base mix then undergoes two weeks of quality control testing to ensure the highest possible quality
We then take the finished base mix and carefully mix in the dry pigment power(s) and any other auxiliary materials required to achieve the best possible dispersion of the pigment
Once the pigment is fully “wetted out” into a paste we carefully run this over our triple roll mill with ceramic rollers (we use ceramic rollers as metal rollers can adversely affect some pigments)
After the first run over the mill a sample of the paint is then run over our Hegman Gauge to test the fineness of the grind, we use this method to ensure the pigment has the same particle size as the previous batch, if not we run the paint over the mill again and again until we reach the desired grind
We then test viscosity, density and finally paint out a swatch of the colour against the original finalised paint test swatches
The final paint is then left for a further 2 weeks as part of our quality control process before being hand filled into our tubes, pots or pans and finally labelled
Using distilled water with all our watercolours to keep each pigment at its purest form

I have not yet had a proper chance to use this but i have swatched it and played with on an experimental painting i am trying.
not really a painting but lots of paint experiments i am trying
This i have been able to use as a tree trunk but also washed over the wet sand colour and then used buttercup yellow wash and the sand look great.
Lovely quality pigment, smooth and rich, as expected. It falls somewhere between the DS range Aussie Red Gold and English Red Ochre but seems to have slightly more radiance and better laying quality.
I love this colour its depth is beautiful. It seems like a richer version of Burnt Sienna . It’s a new essential colour in my repertoire.
this is an excellent warm colour which I am going to use for autumn land scapes and experiement with other colour mixes and will be an excellent versitile colour for my new limited pallette
Beautiful colour, the more you add water the more it changes colour. I love these paints
