Professional watercolour paint made in small batches by hand in our Toronto-based studio.

Made with the highest quality dried pigments and simple ingredients like clove oil and locally sourced wildflower honey—no fillers, brighteners, extenders, or chemical preservatives; just pure colour.


Over the past 5 years, we've honed our craft to offer artists premium paints made with care. Each and every one of our colours has a unique combination of ingredients tailored to suit the properties and behaviours of our high-quality pigments.

In addition to our range of traditional artists' colours, we're always crafting new and exciting shades to elevate your work.


The pigment is enveloped in our binding solution with traditional glass tools until it reaches the perfect consistency.

Our pans are then filled in thin layers over the course of a month to ensure quality and optimum concentration of colour.
