For the ancient Egyptians, blue was a very important color. At around 2600 BC, Egyptian blue enters the historical record. It is considered to be the first synthetic pigment. 

Modern experiments show that Egyptian blue (chemical formula: CaCuSi4O10) can be obtained by heating these chemicals to 800–900°C with the addition of lime, a calcium-containing material, which must have been present in the ancient method, probably as an impurity in the sand.

Light Fastness: 8/8

Handmade watercolor may not look nice as factories make. We aim to make highly pigmented and flowy watercolor. Flowy watercolor lets you create layers in watercolor, nice loose paintings, and much more.

Each of them is handmade in Hong Kong using our selected, high-quality pigment and gum arabic solution which is made from distilled water, gum arabic powder from France, glycerine, and honey.
