Tutankhamun Colour Wheel | Legendary Layercake
LayerCake Colour Wheels are a fit-in-your-palm palette of our unique paint.
Each one contains 6 glorious hues, carefully balanced to satisfy a specific creative need!
LayerCake paint combines the vivid opacity of gouache with watercolour’s ease of use, and acrylics’ layerability.
When Layercake paint dries it has a divine, velvety surface. Think of it as a liquid Artist Pastel!
2022 is the 100 year anniversary of Howard Carter and his team finding the tomb of Tutankhamun! This Pharaoh, although a household name to us, was a child-king and did not reign for long. His tomb was distinctly lacking in the usual pomp and ceremony for an Egyptian Pharaoh. What makes his tomb extraordinary, is that it travelled through the ages without being looted and gave us a unique window into the world of the ancient Egyptians.
These metallic colours are a mini collection of the larger ‘Lustrous Eclairs’ Layercake Palette.
