M. Graham artist-grade watercolor tube paints are native to the Pacific Northwest. They are made in small batches with a simple recipe of honey, gum arabic, glycerine, and fine pigments. The addition of honey ensures that the color will always dilute easily, and will never fully dry up in the palette or in the tube, even after years of disuse. Each color's formula is individually developed to highlight the unique character of the pigment. These paints compete easily with other artist-grade brands in quality and lightfastness while also being less expensive. Price varies depending on pigment rarity.
