THE LANIKAI COLLECTION

LANIKAI COLLECTION


a little about this collection...
BREATHE deep, exhale and listen to the calming sounds of the waves
It's the shimmering water as the sunrise peeks up behind The Mokes...
the vibrant electric blue of the Man o’ war stranded on the sand...
the sand turtles darting furiously camouflaged in the sand
the swaying palm trees, remnants of the coconut fibers & palm fronds scattered...

THERE IS SO MUCH TO TAKE IN...to explore...
it's a morning meditation
the rain suddenly drops wildly and a rainbow emerges...
its the perfect way to start the day...
a walk on the beach...
the puppies playing in the water...
the ocean breeze... 
it's time for a break..be at peace...
take in all the inspiration...

A PEEK INSIDE THE COLLECTION...

LANIKAI WAVES INK COLLECTION

The LANIKAI ink collection includes the option of TWO different sets of #tracibautistaCOLOR handmade artisan watermedia inks. 


LANIKAI WAVES ink set #1: {shown above} includes THREE gorgeous ink colors that create a medley of ocean blues and grays 


LANIKAI SUNRISE ink set #2: {shown below} includes FOUR tropical colored inks.


Each ink color is mixed by hand and created in small limited edition batches adorned with hand painted labels.


All the handcrafted inks are mixable with each other along with the watercolors. There is a beauty when you mix the paints and inks together, it produces a beautiful range of colors! 


The inks are highly pigmented staining colors with deep saturation. Some colors are not lightfast like many dye-based inks. They have been tested and hung in a very bright sun-filled studio wall with minimal color change. 

FOUNTAIN & DIP PENS: They can be used for lettering with pointed nib dip pens, calligraphy, and in fountain pens. They have been tested in TWSBI ECO-T, Sailor Fude, Noodlers, and Lamy pens and work best with a flex or stub nib since some of the inks have a beautiful shimmer. 


STENCILS: Using an oval wash brush, paint the inks through a stencil. They are perfect for using as a wash layer over acrylic paint or wax resist. Apply gesso or molding paste through stencils using a palette knife to reveal textures then paint over gesso resist with watercolors. 


#tracibautistaCOLOR inks are made with the mixed media artist in mind, they are perfect for use in art journals and sketchbooks. 


All the paints and inks are hand mixed by paint maker Traci Bautista in very small limited edition batches. Handcrafted with LOVE in California, USA.

LANIKAI WATERCOLOR COLLECTION

the beautiful sights, sounds and textures of Lanikai beach is the inspiration behind this new handcrafted artisan watercolors & ink collections and paintings ūüé® my hope is that you feel like you are relaxing and listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you paint with this collection ūüĆä


COLLECTION COLORS: a gorgeous mix of deep blue hues from baby blue skies to glistening golden turquoise, vibrant shimmering purples, sunrise orange, palm frond greens, cloudy grays, sandy and coconut browns.


WATERCOLOR PANS: TWO or THREE handmade artisanal watercolor MULTICOLOR pans {this is a 1" non rusting metal pan with 2-4 paint colors topped with additional watermedia fragments and some have various metallic flakes} Each pan is equivalent to a little more than one half pan, about 3/4 pan.


WATERCOLOR SWATCH SET: a ceramic tile palette with multiple swatches of paint colors from the collection. This is my favorite way to work with the paints with larger brushes


ALL of #tracibautstaCOLOR ink + paint collections are sold PRE-ORDER. The paints take up to a month to complete. The colors are made in small batches and poured multiple times. The paints are highly pigmented made with a mixture of earth, organic, inorganic and mica pigments. They are created without any additonal fillers and include a handmade organic binder  


SKETCHBOOK + ART JOURNALS:  The paints are perfect to use to create layered backgrounds for art journals and canvases. Stack the stencils on top of each other or side by side to create new patterns over a gel plate and take multiple prints. Paint them with #tracibautistacolor watercolors & inks. 


WORKSHOP BONUS: When you purchase a #tracibautistaCOLOR collection you get access to two live wor.kshop replays PLUS a new paint & swatch workshop that dives into the collection you purchase.
