Pfeiffer Art Supply is home to our handmade watercolor paints. We love birds and have decided to name each of our colors after a different bird.
These paints are made from pure raw pigment and mulled with a binder ( or adhesive liquid) on a glass slab. Then to finish off the grinding we use a mill for each color to break the pigment down even further to achieve a beautiful buttery texture for each color. Each color has its own recipe and has been meticulously made many, many times.
To prepare our vehicle for each pigment (entire liquid content of paint system), we use natural clove oil and in some pigments vegetable glycerin to enhance the binder and performance of our paint. We do not use fillers, brighteners or dryers in our pigments because we want each color to be as pure as possible. We also use the highest qualities of pigments, binder, honey and natural preservative.
Each pan of color takes about a week from start to finish to complete. We allow the color to dry multiple times to shrink and then refill so that you get the most amount of color for your dollar. Since these are made by hand, no two will look alike or "perfect". It is normal for some cracking to appear.
Each pan comes labeled. Each complete kit comes with a place for mixing your paints and a small water brush. Also each pan is magnetized to the tin so that you can buy individual colors from our shop in the near future.
This kit includes 18 half pans of your choice. Colors the shop currently carries are:
Road Runner Burnt Umber
Nightingale Natural Red
Northern Cardinal Red Iron Oxide
Falcon Red Ochre
Kingfisher Red Lacquer

(Choose 18 half pans and specify in notes before checkout which colors you would like. Keep in mind that some colors sell out fast, and if a certain color is out, we can usually get it done for you in a week or so).
This comes with a free water brush.
Tin can be personalized if you like. This is our Large tin. Just add in notes in quotes what you would like on tin.
Note - Please keep out of reach from small children as the colors can be a choking hazard. These are not for human consumption.

I love the colors. They are bright and mix well. Shipping was extraordinarily fast. I've had the paints for a week and I've already put a dent in them! Highly recommend.

I’m so happy with these watercolors. I only just started painting again and I’m glad i bought these instead of some cheap mass produced set. I feel good using these, and they motivate me to keep going!

These paints have become my go-to paints lately. I've been painting with them for over a month now and I have no complaints. I love the all the colors. They are vibrant when I want them to pop and they are subtle when I am going for a softer effect. These paints have made me fall in love with handcrafted paints. I may never buy commercially produced paints again!
