Vivanite - Blue Ochre - Single half Pan

13.80

Vivanite, also known as blue ochre, is a rare pigment. This vivanite is sourced from scuba divers in Australia deep within the ocean. Vivianite crystals are often found inside fossil and shells. It's a tabular crystal, transparent like glass, with a deep green color but oxides when ground to a deep blue colour.

Colour index: N/A. 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.
