Our colours are available in three formats: Half-pan, Waterblocks and Waterdrops. Half-pans are individually wrapped and labeled, and come with a magnet attached to the bottom for storage in a tin, and have the colour name attached to the side for easy reordering. Waterblocks and Waterdrops are pan-free watercolours, designed to be used in existing plastic or porcelain palettes. These eco-friendly alternatives are smaller in volume, but allow versatility for those who prefer filling and customising palettes with tubes and allowing the paint to dry before use. Now we give the dry paint to you to pop into your existing palette! Wet the bottom with water or a bit of gum arabic to secure it to your palette.

Great paints!!

These paints are super pigmented. They activate quickly and a little goes a long way. I love that you can get so many colors just by having these three primaries. They were beautifully packaged with a personalized note and a treat. What’s not to love?!?!


These pigments blend together so well and the colors that come from these three primaries are fantastic and bright. These are the perfect set of handmade watercolors!!

Offensively Pigmented is not exaggeration

These paints are magical, you guys, MAGICAL. They are so deeply pigmented and mix wonderfully. I am very impressed with the quality that has been achieved by Emma and TWF. I look forward to new colours to come!
