This is a cute little “micro” tin that holds a single colour of one of my handmade watercolour paints.  The paint sits in a single ceramic well inside an aluminium screw top tin with a little clay logo on the top.  Single “Micro” size.

These small single tins come in 3 options.  For the “Micro” and “Teeny” size the tins are the same size but they contain a ceramic palette that varies in volume.  “Mini Me” is a smaller tin. Please check all the information below, and the photos, to be sure of what you are purchasing.


Nocturne is my version of a lovely deep Paynes Grey but with lots of granulation. It is made up of the 2 pigments listed below.

Nocturne is a super granulating colour and will move and separate on your paper as it dries, it is really dark and moody like a stormy sky. You’ll get browns and deep blues in this one colour.

teRra handmade paints are hand-mulled on a glass slab in small batches, using the highest quality lightfast pigments, sourced from reputable professional art suppliers.  I only use the finest quality artist grade ingredients in my formulations, which comprises of the pigment, pure Gum Arabic and vegetable glycerine as the binder.


The small ceramic palette/well is fired in a kiln with a semi-gloss glaze.  Each one is handmade individually and is uniquely different so slight variations can occur, your item will be as close to the images shown that is possible with my handmade process.  Clay colour can be off white or tan.
