Think cool mornings, beautiful sunrises, and the reflection of light across a frozen lake. That is the essence of this palette. Included are:
- Apricity – a pale, cool yellow
- Sareureuk – a cool pink with slight granulation
- Solstice – a deep purple-blue
- Brumous – a blue so dark it is almost black
- Niveous – a vibrant blue with subtle teal granulation
I have included some swatches of the potential beautiful mixes that you can make with this palette.
Note: These paints are made in small batches, so may experience slight variations from pan to pan. As honey is used in the binder, please leave the paint in the freezer for 5-10 minutes prior to removing the baking parchment, to prevent the paint sticking.
Handmade in small batches using local ingredients, Khannah’s Honey Hues offer an artist-grade alternative to commercial paints. Each pigment is hand-selected to ensure quality, and from local suppliers where possible.
Here colour and joy are the focus – each paint is made to experiment and stretch the properties of pigments to give paints that offer unique characteristics. We also have a large range of single-pigment colours, offering consistent staples for your palette. You will find paints to suit any style amongst our ranges: from controlled detail in portraiture, botanicals, and animal studies to loose landscapes and abstracts. We have also recently released a shimmer range that gleams off the page.
Each pan of watercolour goes through a rigorous process to ensure perfection. From a homemade binder, containing Wollaton honey, gum arabic, and preservative that is made over 2 days, to the grinding of pigment to ensure each particle binds to the gum arabic solution, every case is taken to ensure the perfect product. The pans are filled in layers over several weeks to ensure that the maximum pigment is packed into every brush stroke.
Please note that processing times on your order may vary, depending on whether this is a made-to-order paint, or one currently in stock. If you have any queries, please get in touch.
