“Handle with care, use with reckless abandon!” has been our motto since day one. While we rely on the postal service for the first, we wanted you to get messy with our final box of the year. Watercolors are a wonderful medium for exploring your creative side. They’re easy to use and so incredibly forgiving. Just add water!

Peerless Transparent Watercolors

Peerless published their first watercolor book in 1902 and little has changed in their production since then. Their convenient form, incredible transparency, and self-blending properties have gained this product worldwide fame. To use: cut a small piece of the color film, place in a container and add water to dissolve the color from the film. Remove the film clippings and dilute with more water if necessary. Your colours are ready to use!

Windsor & Newton Cotman Watercolors

The Cotman watercolors come in 40 colors. They have excellent tinting strength and are easy to work with.

Derwent Artbar

These triangular bars have a creamy consistency and are highly pigmented. They can be used on their own for expressive marking, blending, and layering. Adding water with a brush will cause these mark to “melt” into the paper. You can create delicate washes or opaque color by varying the amount of water used.

Epic Watercolor Brush

Sometimes it’s in the name! Taklon is softer and more absorbent than other brushes, making for fluid and smooth lines. These brushes are also quite durable and will keep their shape for a long time.

Strathmore Watercolor Artist Trading Cards

Sometimes a large blank page can be intimidating. Strathmore has created these versatile, felt-finished cards and we think their small size takes some of that intimidation away. These trading cards are perfect for practicing techniques.  This product launched a movement that enables artists to share these miniature works of art with each other!

Brush Rest by Rebecca Graves Pottery

One of our goals for Well Inked Box has been to work with other artisans and creatives. This watercolor box has given us the opportunity to include a beautiful, hand-made brush rest from Rebecca Graves made exclusively for you! Because they’re untreated they’ll develop a patina as you use them.
