|Beautifully wrapped Lost in Colours package|
I recently received a most beautiful package from Jyotsna of Lost in Colours
. It contained a metal tin with 6 beautiful handmade watercolours that are completely non-toxic. Each half pan was wrapped in a hand-painted label and it was lovely to unwrap them.

I then painted each colour out. They re-wet with ease. The earthy colours are really beautiful. But then I've always loved earth pigments.

The colours mixed together beautifully to create this earthy primary triad wheel.

I don't talk a lot about health hazards much when it comes to watercolour as I see it as one of the more low-impact art supplies since there is so little wastage. However for anyone who wants to be as green and careful as possible, these colours are really eco-friendly and that is something that Jyotsna is passionate about. The website gives a good list of the colours that are safe and those that are toxic to produce or to use. It's well worth being informed.
I haven't done any lightfast tests though I'd only be nervous about the genuine indigo. For working in a sketchbook even natural indigo NB1 would be safe.
