Our Fraktur Painter’s Palette was inspired by the watercolor palette used by the Pennsylvania German artists. Created locally by Peg and Awl, it is constructed from sustainable maple and vegetable-tanned leather, the palette is a simple way to transport your favorite paints, whether you mix your own pigments or squeeze them from a tube. The palette contains 6 hand made colors including Red Oxide, Havana Ochre, Yellow Ochre, Malachite, Sky Blue and Black. Creating Fraktur, makers primarily used ink and watercolor
Peg and Awl work and create in Philadelphia. Their work is made from olde things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes, and useable, long-lasting treasures—and when the old eludes them, they use sustainable materials.
