Marigold
Professional Handmade Watercolour

Jackman’s Art Materials in collaboration with In The Studio With Michele Webber

A fresh clear orange that can be used alone, added to pink florals or dropped into greens to add brightness.

Our Process

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

Lovely paint — as have all the paints been that I've had from Jackman's. Bright, clean, transparent orange. great for glazing with. Trying to slowly replace the other brands I have with Jackman's (hoping you'll produce a Manganese Violet in the future).

marigold transperent orange

a very bright colour that produces very striking effects and can be toned down with cobalt blue if required transperant orange is a very vibrant colour for urban sketching which brings a very vibrant focal point in the sketch and you dont have to stick to correct colours of the scene so you can express your personel artistic expression of the scence

Just about the best watercolours you can buy

Mark I have been using your watercolours for two or three months now and my goodness are they excellent. Beautifully strong luminous colours and one of the best things I carols ask for is that when they have been out on a palette for a while they wet up again really easily. I will definitely by purchasing the rest of your watercolour range with total confidence.

I bought a tube of this watercolour pigment, and I am so pleased that I did. The colour is so vibrant and beautiful, and is of a good consistency, needing only a very little to get a good result. This is from Michele Webber's Floral Set collection, which I will be purchasing when I am able. Thank you jackmans and Michele Webber
