Potters Pink

Professional Handmade Watercolour

Swatch Painted on: Saunders Waterford, White, Rough, 100% Cotton, Mould Made, Acid Free, 300 gsm Watercolour Paper

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

Potters Pink

Martin L
An outstanding version. Quite a rare beast...

Excellent smooth, rich pigment and a joy to use. Not that common a colour and one that I think is a bit underrated. Lovely for botanical subjects and a great addition for skin tones, sunsets and sunrises as that colour that can't quite seem to be mixed.

Especially nice Potter's Pink

I've tried a few different potters pinks and this one is especially strong. Excellent value for the price too as this one is often a pricier pigment. Very happy with all my Jackman's paints but particularly this one

Potters pink

Love the potters pink, good quality paint, will be great for my botanical paintings!

Potters pink watercolour excellent.

Love this colour. A gorgeous dusty earthy pink. Granulated beautifully and muxes well to create ther interesting colours. Especially good to mix with other granulation colours . Would get the half pan next time round because the paint gets into the pots lid and leaks on opening and closing so is messy and wastes paint.
