Blood of the Ozarks Driftwood Palette

$100.00 $100.00.

7 colors, including the rare Fresh Earthy Blood. 5 mini-cubes and 2 balls mounted on a unique and artistic piece of Ozark driftwood. When you’re finished with one color, simply glue a replacement on with hot glue. Over time, the pigments give the wood an interesting character.

A collection including combinations made from one of my rare pigments from a small red stone found in the King’s river. Earthy Blood, Fresh Earthy Blood, and Bloody Yellow! all contain different levels of True Blood, one of the rarest local colors I make (which is why the price is higher than usual).

All colors in this set are earth pigments and light fast.

The Paleo Mini Pigments (listing specifies which colors are available)

The varieties offered will change as I make my own paints. The list below will be added to as I make a new color that wasn’t previously listed. Not all colors are available at all times.

A Note about Color Reproducibility & Transparency

All of my paleo mini paint cubes are made from natural foraged rocks, clay, or other resources. While I may be able to come close to reproducing the color later, it’s very unlikely I’ll get an exact match. There’s enough pigment in each of these dots to paint several swatches, and possibly full small paintings in the style I produce. A little bit does seem to go a long ways.

Watercolor paints made from earth pigments are not as transparent as those you might be used to. All of them are more similar to gouache than not. The ones I’ve labeled ‘gouache’ are more opaque than the pigments alone. The only ones of my paleo paint samples that are truly transparent are those from plant pigments, like the sassafras root bark in this collection.

You can see the paintings I’ve made using my handmade watercolor paints at www.PaleoPaints.com if you’d like to get an idea of how they look.
