It's messy.  It's chaotic, but it's my favorite place on earth.  Take a scroll through to see how I make my paints and learn more about the equipment I use every day.

Paint

PROFESSIONAL GRADE ARTIST WATERCOLOR PAINTS

Pigments are the staple of my handmade watercolor business. I invest in high quality professional grade pigments. I make my own binder from scratch with no fillers added. If you want to find highly pigmented, professional artist grade paints my paint collection is for you!

I personally curate color sets, watercolor painting kits, and special pigment blends. Each batch of paint is made in small batches and mulled by hand on a glass slab. I hand pour each pan of paint in multiple layers over the course of several weeks, ensuring every pan of paint is filled with no air pockets and as much pigment as possible.

Laser Cutting

ORIGINAL ART & CUSTOM DESIGNS

Since diving into the world of laser cutting in July 2021, I have expanded my business with an even bigger machine and have taken over the garage for my workshop. I own a OmTech 60w CO2 laser and I design all of my own files. I really enjoy creating home décor pieces and making custom laser engraved sketchbooks and luxury wood watercolor boxes to go with my handmade watercolor paints.

 

I am an official OmTech laser Demo Room and Affiliate. If you are thinking about purchasing a laser and would like to see my OmTech 60w and ask me some questions about OmTech lasers, you can book a meeting through OmTech.

3D Printing

ECO FRIENDLY WATERCOLOR PANS & MORE!

3D printing is a perfect compliment to making handmade watercolors. After I started making more and more paint, I was quickly using up empty watercolor pans and I wanted to find a way to cut my costs. I invested in my first 3D printer and now have two machines running almost 24/7 printing empty watercolor pans in multiple sizes as well as shape stencils drawing aids and color charts to use with your watercolor painting. I also love using polylactic acid or PLA, which is a bioplastic derived from corn.
