One half pan of handmade watercolour, in the colour Gray Jay.

Named for the beautiful Canada Jay, or ‘Gray Jay’ as it used to be called, this neutral grey mix has been highly requested and is a customer favourite! Just like the bird, it is cheerful and cheeky!

Use it as a shadow grey or to deepen the tone of other colours.

My favourite way to use Gray Jay is in a wash with lots of water so the pigments have room to separate and surprise me. You’ll notice the blue undertones with this method. Or, you can use it with very little water as a lovely blue black that stays deep and dark. Yum.

This grey is non-staining, so you can lift mistakes or highlights a bit easier.

*Currently also available in a quarter pan size (1 ml). To purchase this size, please see the quarter pan listing

Warm Edges to Cool Shadows

I love using your Gray Jay with a fine, or whisker brush, to create a warm edge or outline to define my flowers! It's soo much better than Payne's Gray against my bright florals. Gray Jay also thins out to make shadows that eventually disappear! How cool is that? The bonus of Gray Jay is its lovely granulation.

Absolutely beautiful color

Gray jay is one of those colors that you want to use all the time but at the same time, you use sparingly because you know it's not going to last long! Definitely one of my favorite colors!
