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 6 half pan size colors. This mini kit is our WATCH kit. Did you know that a group of Nightingales are called a Watch?
Half pans included are:
Nightingale Natural Red
Kingfisher Red Lacquer
Goldfinch Dark Yellow
Tody Dark Green
Starling Prussian Blue
Rosefinch Ultramarine Rose
Tins can be personalized if you like. Just add in notes in quotes what you would like on your tin.
(Note, some colors maybe out of stock. It takes me about a week to make a batch. Please allow time if a certain color is out or choose an alternate color if you want it right away.)
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 these watercolors. They are so soft and lovely. They are easy to rev-wet and the colors are beautiful. I ordered three extra colors and the seller gave me a tin for them too. I also bought the tulip paint brush and I love it. I painted the picture below with these paints and brush. I think it turned out pretty. Paula

Fast shipping and versatile color selection. Smooth colors that are vibrant yet not distracting. High quality paints with color information provided by the seller.
