Pfeiffer Art Supply is home to non-toxic 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 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 12 half pans of your choice. Colors the shop currently carries are:
Road Runner Burnt Umber
Nightingale Natural Red
Falcon Red Ochre
Kingfisher Red Lacquer
Cardinal Medium Red Crimson
Sandgrouse Light Yellow Ochre

(Choose 12 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.

I haven't used these much yet, but so far they're beautiful! They rewet very easily for the most part (the Tanager Turquoise needs a bit more work than the other colors I selected but is still lovely) I especially love that I was able to select my own colors for a personalized set. Will likely order a few more colors in future!

This cute little set arrived in good time, good condition and is lovely. The colors are beautiful and rich. I have only done a couple scrap pieces of paper with the paints and have enjoyed them. I look forward to a painting with them.

I am so happy I was able to take part in the BF sale. Instead of 6 I was looking to order I was able to grab a whole palette of 12 colors. I haven't opened them up yet because I ordered them for me for Christmas from my hubby. The presentation of what I peeked at is beautiful.

My daughter loved her set so much, I ordered another one for my daughter-in-law who just started a military school. She loves it also. They are not allowed any electronics for awhile, and as an artist this gives her something she loves to do. Perfect travel size. Seller is wonderful to deal with and very timely.
