Limited Edition: Rose Madder Lake

Rose Madder is a traditional lake pigment extracted from Rubia tinctorum or the madder plant. Lake pigments consist of a natural clay base that is then dyed with condensed madder in a process that is thought to have been first invented by the ancient Egyptians. It was a fairly fugitive pigment until an English dye make began using alum and an alkali which worked well in making the pigment lightfast.

Handmade in our shop using the highest quality earth pigment and natural watercolor binding medium made from gum arabic (sap from acacia trees,) honey, glycerine and distilled water.
