About this Product

This collection of handmade shimmer watercolor paints features 3 chrome colors and 1 low luster mica with large particle holographic glitter.

Please ignore the extra r in Perseverance. I didn’t notice it until after taking all of the product photos and didn’t have time to retake them prior to launch. All pans will be labeled correctly.

Rocket is a bright red chrome with large particle holographic glitter.

Stripes is a low luster white mica with large particle holographic glitter.

Perseverance is a vivid blue chrome with large particle holographic glitter.

Stars is a bright silver chrome with large particle holographic glitter.

This set of watercolors comes packaged in a watercolor paper box that you can decorate and reuse or trim the flaps off and use for a mini painting.

INGREDIENTS:

* Mica Pigment

* Gum Arabic

* Glycerin (helps with flow)

* Honey (makes paints rewet easier)

* Distilled Water

* Clove oil(works as a preservative)

- Each half pan measures 0.8×0.7×0.4 in

- Each pan contains a small magnet affixed at its bottom, which can be removed

All my watercolors are made with cosmetic grade, non-toxic micas that are mulled by hand in small batches(generally 10 or less half pans at a time). I use the highest amount of mica that the binder will hold resulting in highly pigmented colors. Each batch and fill is swatch tested to ensure the color doesn’t rub off of the paper when dry.

All half pans are filled a minimum of 3-4 times.

I do my best to get the best photos possible however the colors may look slightly different from what you see online due to various monitor/screen settings.

HOW TO USE:

Before using, please put a drop of water onto the desired color and let it sit for a few minutes. This will moisten the binder and give you the best color possible.

All of the Glitz colors have holographic glitter in them and therefore will need a bit longer time and possibly a tiny but more water to activate.

All of our Glitz colors have the same ratio of binder, mica and glitter. Some colors show the glitter in the pan better than others. Rest assured they all have the same amount of glitter regardless of how the dried pans look.

I use both honey and glycerin in my paints to help with rewetting and flow. For this reason they will attract moisture and certain colors will still be soft even when dry. They also may arrive sticky or slightly goopy due to humidity during transit. If this happens place them in the freezer for a bit before removing the foil wrappers. Once unwrapped you could also place them in front of a fan on low to facilitate drying.

Once you have finished using your paint please make sure they are completely dry before storing as not to encourage mold.

*NOTE: Since these watercolors are made with mica they often have bubbles appear during the drying process. I try to pop them all but in the event that I miss some they in no way affect how the color looks or behaves after rewetting.

Due to the nature of the product and the fact that we have no control over what contaminants may come in contact with the paint we cannot offer refunds.

Please practice proper safety procedures while using your paints: do not ingest paints, do not leave within reach of children or pets, completely dry paints before storing to prevent mold.

Care instructions

Our watercolor binder has honey and glycerin in it and may attract quite a bit of moisture due to the heat and humidity during transit, therefore during the summer months you may need to place your watercolors in the freezer overnight. Cooler times of the year you may only need 10-30 minutes or none at all. Paint may scraped back into the pans from the foil with a palette knife. Foster’s Creations is not responsible for any lost paint due to climate issues.

Please make sure your paints are dried completely before storing to prevent mold.
