The name "Orpiment" is derived from the Latin word Auripigmentum, which means gold pigment, referring to its color and historical use as a golden-yellow pigment. This mineral can form unique combinations with bright red Realgar.
Orpiment was used as a pigment in ancient times but was replaced due to its toxicity.
Light Fastness: 8/8
Handmade watercolor may not look nice as factories make it. We aim to make highly pigmented and flowy watercolors. Flowy watercolor lets you create layers in watercolor, lovely loose paintings, and much more.
Each of them is handmade in Hong Kong using our selected, high-quality pigment and gum arabic solution made from distilled water, gum arabic powder from France, glycerine, and honey.
Love Orpiment! Odd name but a gorgeous warm golden yellow that flows beautifully off your brush!
