A Davenpeep favourite!
Gorgeous, lustrous colours
Blends like a dream
Gouache opacity with freedom of watercolour
Water loving media


LayerCake are like nothing you’ve ever painted with before! These dreamy paints dry to a matte finish which makes them ideal for layering.

Icing on the Layercake contains ten gleaming hues.

  • 5 Chameleon metallics with colour changing effects.
  • 5 pearlescent metallics lustrous sheen.
  • The formulas of the different types looks different in the pan and both give beautiful effects.

Their coverage on light and dark paper is magical!

A lovely brush custom made to fit the pans perfectly is included as a free gift.


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!
In thicker application you can add a spray of Matte fixative varnish or cheap hairspray over the top to help everything stay put.

The pans can be moved in and out of the palette so you can customise at will!
