Artist quality, handmade paint prepared from a New Zealand pigment. Brick Red is just that, from part of a old brick from the garden, hand-ground into powder and then made into paint using a traditional watercolour recipe consisting of gum arabic, honey, ox gall, oil of cloves as a preservative and distilled water. The paint is then placed in watercolour half-pans to dry.

Bricks are made from clay, so this paint has much the same quality as the opaque clay based paints. It is a much finer powder, and the colour can be watered down to make a strong paler colour.

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.)
