It is such fun to try handmade paints from JazperStardust and PfeifferArt.
I played with them in posies on Hahnemühle post cards…
I use masking for ease, and to get the white dots at the end…
Jazper’s Lapis up against DS Quinophthalone Yellow as a base.
JazperStardust‘s Lapis, Goldfish, Sunray, and Coral star with other colors mixed in…
I had problems so removed a bit of color — Jazper’s paints can go on thick and rich — and maybe a bit too rich so I need to get used to more pigment than a Daniel Smith paint.
I simply went in with a damp paper towel, and was fine with the slight impressions it left — I like texture! Still not quite happy, I took a cotton swab and dabbed on DS Sap Green.
Once the masking was removed, I was happy!
PfeifferArt‘s Lavender-Blue played nicely with Jazper’s Lapis and Goldfish.
Working with handmade paints takes getting used to the differences…
More pigments usually, meaning you have to do less of a dip
into the wet paint to get a wash going.
The heavy texture of the Hahnemühle Post Cards adds to the variation!.

We just had another snowy day so these posies give me hope that spring will be here soon 😉
I keep waiting!
