M. GRAHAM WATERCOLOR formulations are created with exceptional amounts of pigment in a time-honored binding medium of pure gum arabic and natural blackberry honey.
WHY HONEY As an essential ingredient in our binding medium, honey contributes to moistness for smooth, easily controlled applications, increased pigment concentrations and freedom from reliance on preservatives. Because of the honey medium, our color resists hardening on the palette, or in the tube. It dilutes easily, often after months of disuse.
THE FINEST PIGMENTS We select the finest example of every pigment from sources all over the world. To most, this means they are the highest grade. To us, it means they are the most beautiful of their kind. And after going to such lengths to find them, we wouldn’t dream of diluting them. So when we make color, we don’t use fillers. We don’t use extenders. We don’t put adulterants in. These all have a negative impact on color and the eye sees it.
CRAFTSMAN QUALITY Our color is made in small batches. Every one is different. They all have their own personality. They’re kind of like children that way. You have to patiently nurture their potential, applying just the perfect amount of mill pressure and speed to coax the optimum pigment load and dispersion. This is the work of craftsman. No amount of high-volume industrial standardization can match this level of care.
