Spectrum 11 - Gouache Paint Palette
This collection shows paint palettes set in wood block. Hand cut and sanded palettes made from reclaimed birch with bark still on, filled with just pigment and binder, so saturated the personality of the pigment really shows through.
This set features gouache colours, which work well for layering or painting on darker paper as they are more opaque than transparent. Set in a reclaimed white birch block from Manitoulin Island, and finished with warm beeswax. All paints are handmade in small batches with local Manitoulin honey, wildcrafted tree sap, hand gathered, washed and sifted Manitoulin stone and the finest lightfast pigments.
11 Swatches: Wild Rose, Morning Peach, Cream, Butter, Spring Green, Robin's Egg Blue, Ice Blue, Lavender, Grey Ultra, Limestone White and Gold.
A little goes a long way! Each paint is only pigment and binder which creates a very concentrated colour which lasts a long time.

Beam Paints draws on their early education in Indigenous pigment and expands it to encompass all paint traditions. A focus on high quality pigment content creates sublime artist materials, with plastic free packaging.
