  1. Shell Gold Watercolour 1/4 pan Silver

    Shell Gold Watercolour 1/4 pan Silver

    £27.00

    Shell gold, so named because it was historically made and stored in a shallow shell such as a mussel shell, consists of finely powdered genuine gold mixed with a variety of gums. It is mixed with a bit of water and applied in the same way as watercolour. After drying for an hour or so, it can be burnished to a soft, beautiful lustre using an agate stone burnishing tool.
    Our Shell gold is used by calligraphers, framers, restorers, iconographers and watercolour artists.
    In recent years our colour range of genuine gold has been extended and genuine Lapis Lazuli and genuine Malachite have also been added. Learn More
