All of the handmade watercolours below are made by myself. When you're buying a handmade watercolour you're buying something unique. You're also buying something that may be very limited in quantity (some pigments are difficult to get). Pigments vary in price so these half pans of watercolour reflect that. Some pigments are also way more difficult to mix but don't worry, that's not reflected in the price. It may be reflected in never offering them again, though, so act soon! Paints are poured in several layers and allowed to dry. However, sometimes after they are wrapped and ready for shipping they may sink back into their little half pan homes a bit. Sorry about that, it's just their nature. The aim is to get them as full as possible.
You'll find an assortment of paints - some with one pure pigment, others a mixture of pigments and some are not even natural pigments (these usually put the fun in funky - check out Mink).
I began making watercolour when I lived in Hamilton for a few years so the steel city was a bit of an inspiration for the palette with a nod to the industrial heritage contrasting with the beauty of the Royal Botanical gardens and trails nearby.
But there's been a relocation back to my hometown of Toronto so we now have ot.to - Old Town Toronto handmade watercolour! Get ready to see more colour inspiration from my new neighbourhood near the Distillery District and St. Lawrence Market.
