Jars with lids are a practical and economical way to work with watercolours. Left-over colours can be kept in the jar. The lid keeps the colours fresh for many days and they do not need to be tipped back or washed out. The jar is also suitable for glue, ink or Indian ink.
Watercolour paint that is mixed with water is normally done so in a small quantity for a painting session, yet one may often still have paint leftover and in good condition, wishing to pick up again later in the day or in the next days. Painting with these jars offers a way to save the mixed paint to use again.
Made in the EU for Mercurius.
*Please note: we find the 50 ml size large enough, and it is the size most people often go with. The 100 ml size is even taller and may hold more paint. Whichever size you go with the wooden paint jar holders sold separately ARE NOT interchangeable between the jars.
Approximate jar diameter at base:
The 50ml jar diameter is just under 1, 12/16th inches. (It fits in a jar holder with hole of diameter of that precise size).
The 100ml jar diameter is just under 1, 15/16th inches. (It fits in a jar holder with hole of diameter of that precise size).
