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 pan of color comes individually wrapped and 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 is our MOB kit. Did you know that a MOB of birds are crows? Colors this kit has are as follows:
Falcon Red Ochre
Kingfisher Red Lacquer
Goldfinch Dark Yellow
Sunbird Sun Yellow
Tanager Green Turquoise
Macaw Ultramarine Blue
Cuckoo Lavender Blue
Rose finch Ultramarine Rose
(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).
Tin can be personalized if you like. Just add in notes in quotes what you would like on tin.

Beautiful product and well received in mint condition! I have not used them yet, but am planning to do so in the next few days. I read a recent article in 'Cloth, Paper, Scissors' about Jenn Pfeiffer and am so impressed with this handmade product. Thank you!!

This is a lovely set! Shipping to Australia didn't take that long either.
