Pfeiffer Art Supply is home to our handmade watercolor paints. We love birds and have named each color after a different bird.

These paints are made from pure raw pigment and mixed with gum Arabic, honey, and natural clove oil as a preservative. For mulling we use a mill to break the pigment down to achieve a beautiful buttery texture for each color. Each color has its own recipe and has been meticulously many times.

Since these are handmade, no two will look alike or "perfect". It is normal for some cracking to appear. Because these paints are made with honey, in humid climates, the paints may feel a little tacky. This is normal for handmade paints.

Each pan comes labeled and has a place for mixing your paints and a small water brush, and each pan is magnetized to the tin so that you can buy individual colors from our shop.

(Note, some colors may be out of stock. It takes me 2-3 weeks to make a new batch. Please allow time if a certain color is out or choose an alternate color if you want it right away.)

Please keep out of reach from small children as the colors can be a choking hazard. These are not for human consumption.

Lovely paints! I appreciate the thoughtful packaging and fast shipping!

The Rafter colors are perfect for plein air painting travels and fit amazingly in Etsy quackPlume Egon palette box. Bought several different sets from Jen and love them all. You will, too!

This set is just amazing! The colors are extremely vibrant and balanced perfectly so it's a supremely good starter paint set. All the paints mix well and re-wet very well for handmade (since most handmade formulations can need some time to get going). I'm deeply impressed both with the quality of the paints, but also the presentation and personalized communication from this store. I really appreciate the enclosed swatch sheet too which was also a bit personalized in that it included two extra colors per set that I ordered. These two colors were also thoughtfully included in the tin which was larger than the usual tin free of charge. I'll absolutely be buying more soon. The second set was a gift to my mother for Mother's Day and she fell in instant love, especially since the paints are named after birds and she adores birds. <3

Purchased this as a special gift, and an delighted - it's perfect. Fast shipping, securely and beautifully packaged. Also recieved really helpful advice from the shop owner on choosing the right gift. Thank you!
