Jane Davenport Peerless Watercolors




We have run out of stock for the new Jane Davenport set of 60.
('cos it's so awesome!).
It happened even quicker than it did last time!
We expect to be sending out the new stock by Nov 5th.
Our apologies for the delay!
There is no delay on any of the other sets.

 The most convenient form yet devised to keep watercolours clean and available for instant use.
You can literally fit a rainbow in your Journal!

 "I adore these Peerless water Colors because the colours are so vibrant and yet transparent.
They are professional artist quality and self-blending
which means they are pigment rich and flow without streaking.


I can record colour notes, ideas and inspirations 'in-situ', 
never having to wait until later to add colour, when the memories have faded.

I keep my hand-made palette of them in my bag at all times.
I am happy to share my 'Artomologist's Peerless Palette'  in the images and video below!

When teamed up with our Aquash Waterbrushes, they allow me to add
instant colour to a travel sketch or journal page wherever I am.

'Peerless Palette'


This 'Jane Davenport Signature Set '
contains 60 individual colours

This set is exclusive to this website.




Each Peerless paint chip in this set is 2 inch x 2 inch.

The concentrated paint is coated on one side of a special paper fabric that readily discharges
when it comes into contact with water or any soluble mixture.
The other side shows the colour the paint really is.


International Orders:

USA : You can order the new Jane Davenport Set here


Please note:
Sometimes the swatches have names, sometimes half do, half don't, sometimes none do
It's just luck of the draw on how they come from the Peerless because each swatch is hand-made!

On this page you can see all the colours and work out  what the name of each one is if you feel the need to, but what i discovered fairly quickly is it doesn't really matter!

What is important is to number the main swatch and the chips, so that you can replace the colour chip when you have used all the paint from it.

You can see on the video how I set my Peerless Palette up...

I arranged all the colours in a rainbow,
( using the lighter, non- paint side of the swatches turned up), numbered them all.
I divided my cardboard up ( there's a sample template on the website) for the 61 colours,
numbered those and then I cut a chip from each colour swatch
and glued it to the corresponding place in my palette.

On my first set, I named the swatches, but found it distracting, so on other sets, I left the names out.

I like making a new palette for different journals.
I just made a bigger one to carry in my larger journals and I find it alot of fun to do!

I hope you have fun making yours.

They are exceptionally long lasting, convenient and beautiful!
I hope you enjoy your amazing Peerless watercolours,
they are one of my favourite art supplies because the colours are so vibrant and clear.











The History Of 


"Peerless Transparent Watercolors were developed in 1885 by Charles F. Nicholson. After many years of "revolutionary" chemical research, he developed the self blending line of Peerless Transparent Watercolors in sheet form. His unwavering ideal was to create an original form of presentation for watercolors.
After many years of perserverance, he successfully developed Color Film, or paper leaflet paint as many used to call them. Watercolors had never been offered in dry form and the novelty of the idea seemed to shock the artistic sense of the professional colorist. Even after 122 years, the self blending Peerless Transparent Watercolors still shock the amateur as well as the professional colorist!
Charles F. Nicholson was certainly a genius. The formula he created for his special watercolors in 1885 has never changed. After 122 years, the same process is used in the creation of the colors."


Basic Instructions

  • Product is highly concentrated and intensity is easily controlled by adding more or less water.
  • Apply as a 'normal' watercolour with brushes, Q-tips, cotton balls  or sponges, etc
  • Moisten applicator with water and touch sheet to pick up color. Dry sheet form does not require large quantities to discharge the color.
  • Remover color for the darkest side of the sheet.
  • When finished let individual sheets dry before storage.

Tips for hand tinting your Photographs!

  • Peerless works on all types of photo paper (matte, glossy, or sepia tones, etc.) by directly applying color from the sheet.
  • No affixates are necessary on the photo.
  • When applying Peerless use smooth strokes as if you were painting. In other words, don't dab on the color or it will have light and dark tones on the photo.
  • Detail work should be done with small brushes (size "00" or "000"). For other areas larger brushes should be used.
  • When tinting black & white photos, colors should be diluted with water before applying.
  • When colorizing a photo, a higher intensity of color should be used.
  • When Peerless Transparent Water Color dries it becomes part of the emulsion and does not distort the photo.
  • Special Note For Glossy Photographs (Black & White or Color): Less water is required when applying tint or color to photos.
