Tending toward a wine color this magenta watercolor sparkles with macro glittery mica. These are artist grade archival watercolor. Each pan is hand poured using our own recipes for limited edition colors. We use a natural watercolor binding medium using the sap of acacia trees and the honey from its blossoms. The addition of a natural preservative (NOT CLOVE OIL), distilled water and food grade glycerine assures that these colors will react immediately to the touch of a wet brush.
