Why a Katt's Korner / Artistic Katt Etsy Store?

We created an Etsy store to specifically provide DS Half Pans to Artists -

Why?

Simply put, DS has some of the best watercolor paints in the world, but they do not provide them in a half pan size. Additionally, extruded half pans, which is what most manufacturers make, handle differently than hand-poured half pans from a tube. These paints reconstitute beautifully, and are of a wonderful consistency for travel, unlike the poured half pans with honey or sugar in them. Yuck! Talk about a sticky mess.

Consider this, it can take quite a while for you to go through a tube of paint, and while it sits on the shelf, it ages in the tube. Additionally, many of DS paints are quite expensive, making it hard for an artist who loves to experiment with color, as I do, to experience all their different offerings DS has (at last count 256 of them). By providing half pans, you can experiment and find your favorites. Just found out you don't like Pyrrol Red? Thank goodness you didn't buy a whole tube of it for $15. (But seriously.. Who doesn't love Pyrrol Red?)

Each pan is meticulously poured and dried. I overfill the pans so that when they dry you can have the fullest pan possible.
