The Rublev Colours Basic Flesh Tint Watercolor Palette gives you an introduction to watercolors used to make flesh tints since the 18th century. These colors can be blended and used interchangeably with other watercolors.
Rublev Colours Watercolors are based on single, natural mineral and historical pigments that give you the authentic colors of past watercolors masters. Rublev Colours features such genuine watercolors as natural Ultramarine (Lapis Lazuli), Azurite, Malachite, among many others. These single pigment paints available in moist (tubes) and semi-moist (pans) watercolors are made with the same pigments used by masters of past centuries. While the trend today in commercial watercolors is to suppress pigment textures in favor of homogeneous, flat color, the earth and mineral pigments used in Rublev Colours Watercolors feature larger particles that produce granulation effects without the use of surfactants, such as ox gall. The paint is handcrafted and packed in 15 ml tubes.
