Small batch watercolour paints made with natural and farm ingredients. Made with a single, pure pigment, gum arabic, farm honey, and essential oil as a preservative. The pigments used for making paints are  archival, eco-friendly, and sustainably-harvested from around the world. They contain no added fillers, additives, preservatives, stabilizers, or heavy metals. 

The medieval palette is based on common colours found from approximately 500AD - 1400AD. Most paintings were done using egg as a binder instead of gum arabic. Pigments were sourced from nature and could range from soil to semi-precious stones, limiting the colours available. This palette was created to reflect the colours used during that time.
