Indigo Genuine - Single Half Pan

Indigo Genuine - Single Half Pan

7.40

A single half pan of Indigo Genuine, from the plant Indigofera tinctoria. This pigment comes from India, one of the early countries (along with Peru, south Asia and Egypt) to cultivate and use Indigofera tinctoria.

Colour Index: NB 1.7. *there a might be a slight smell with this colour, this is because of it's plant based nature, and because of it's manufacture there is a slight smell and this indigo has excellent lightfastness. It will not effect the quality of the paint and is completely fine to use.

Due to the process of manufacture this colour has a rating of *** (excellent) lightfastness. Handmade paints work differently from commercial paints, no two are the same. They differ in texture and properties, some watercolours (especially the gem stone like peach agate/garnet/amazonite) tend to sit on the surface of the paper. Each one is hand mulled in micro batches and in multiple layers to ensure each pan is filled. I use my own binder consisting of spring water, kordofan gum arabic, glycerine, local bedfordshire honey and a bit of clove oil.
*subject to availability. Each palette/pan is made with freshly mulled paint to ensure you get no old paint. Please allow around 5-10 business days (not including holidays or weekends) for this item to ship.
