Inspired by my visit to Monet’s Garden at GIVERNY, France

a magical experience…

Informal. Wild. Adventure 

 a blanket of foliage at every turn

shades of green leaves with pops of bright colors

a mix of florals layered with a beautiful haphazard twist

towering sunflowers sway in the breeze

spider flowers 🌸 Tithonia 🪷 water lilies 

leaves🍃 intertwined and tangled

zinnias, celosia, & dahlias mingle 

standing on the bridge I encounter weeping willows, bamboo, & beautiful wisteria cascading over the canopy

…a gorgeous a collage of colors


Handcrafted with the mixed media artist in mind, these unique one-of-a-kind handcrafted pigment stones are created by Traci Bautista in small limited edition batches.

They are highly pigmented and include a mix of earth & synthetic pigments, mica, and custom-designed organic binder. Some have different variations of metallic sheen and multiple pigments.

You'll receive a beautiful package of handcrafted drawing sticks in a beautiful winter/spring PALETTE.

These handmade watermedia sticks can be used both wet or dry to create a number of textures, mark making, and mixed media techniques.

When you use them wet, they create gorgeous watercolor washes or creamy rich textures. When you use them dry, they draw like hard and soft pastels. Each stone has a different texture depending on the pigments and binder used to create it. 

  • mix them with #tracibautistaCOLOR inks, watercolors and water media flakes to make additional colors
  • layer them over #tracibautistacolor waxed wedges to create a resist effect
  • experiment using pigment stones on paper or canvas
  • mix them with matte medium, gesso, or Collage Pauge to create a gritty textured mixed media surface 
  • they can be used on gessoed fabric that won’t be washed for art journals or art quilts
  • they are perfect for adding color to your art journal or sketchbook
  • great to mix with WATERMEDIA AND FLUID ART techniques.
  • layer them over water mixable oil paint or Golden Open acrylic paint
  • layer them over mixed media textured papers including gesso, super matte medium, pastel ground, pumice ground or molding paste
  • Add them to your travel art supply bag for painting with watercolor 
  • to set them when used dry, brush on a light layer of clear gesso or Golden super matter medium or use a spray fixative like Spectrafix
