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 RAFTER kit. Did you know that a group of Turkey is called a Rafter?
Half pans included are:
(Color swatch included may not look exactly the same. If you want the exact same swatch, please let me know in the notes).
Kingfisher Red Lacquer
Falcon Red Ochre
Goldfinch Dark Yellow

Heron Gray Ochre
(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.

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
