Artist quality, handmade paint prepared from a New Zealand pigment. Waikari Yellow is an earth pigment, hand-ground into powder and then made into paint using a traditional watercolour recipe consisting of gum arabic, glycerine or honey water, ox gall, preservative and distilled water. The paint is then placed in watercolour half-pans.
It is quite normal for some of these dried watercolour paints to crack in the pan. This is no way detracts from their use. The beauty of watercolour paint that has dried on the palette is that it can be reused by moistening at any time. (Tip: dried out tubes of watercolour paint can be cut open lengthwise and used in the same way as pan paints.)
