All of our colonial paints are made using natural earth pigments from the United States. American natural earth pigments contain more opacity than than natural earth pigments from Europe, and are preferred by artists for their powerful tinting strength.

The Cyprus paints are made using two natural earth pigments originating in Cyprus. Both pigments are increasingly rare and are carefully sourced to be able to bring you these beautiful and historical colors.

Prussian Blue has been a favorite of artists for centuries, including Picasso, Watteau, and Hokusai. It is often considered the first modern pigment after it’s discovery in 1705. Dye-maker Jacob Diesbach was in pursuit of creating a cochineal red pigment when a chance chemical reaction occurred, creating Prussian Blue. Over time this brilliant blue has been used for more than just a pigment. Prussian Blue was essential to creating the first architectural blueprints and is also used in contemporary medicine as an antidote for heavy metal poisoning.

During production, pigment is mulled by hand on a glass slab with a combination of gum arabic, honey, and food grade preservative. Each pigment has it’s own unique recipe that has been tested over time to ensure the perfect balance of pigment to binder.

I love these paints and I'm so grateful they're offered on a trial card! Even though I'm pretty devoted to another small watercolor company that has a line based on historical methods, the historian in me couldn't resist these and I'm so glad! The colors are smooth and perfectly saturated, I'm absolutely smitten with the colonial colors. I'm already saving up for a half pan set. One can NEVER have too many quality watercolor options in their arsenal. I also have to mention that the way the paints are presented, the packaging and the substantial card palette itself, are beautiful. This shop and their products are a class act and worth the money!
