Wise purple is the color of magic and majesty, a compilation of mystic development. The color that fills a wizard’s book and the edges of the deepest night. It is the color of dreamers and thinkers, a rare beauty in the ‘verse found in shell and bloom and stone of precious commodity. The fastest waves on the spectrum that we can see bring calm and depth to our mind’s eye as it fades into the realm of ultraviolet and beyond. 

Struggling to capture the essence of purple int heir spell books of runes and coper, in the worlds where magic still rings true, purple is the color of the Wizard.

Notes on Purple:

Purple is a secondary color in all methods. In the RYB world of pigment alchemists, and the RGB world of tech-wizards who play with light, it is found by mixing red and blue. In the world of Ink it is pulled together with Magenta and Cyan.

The matter of color is sacred business to the crew of the Crusade. We've traveled the 'verse in search of the finest treasures and embellishments and along the way have discovered many secrets and similarities in the folklore and psychologies of the spectrum our eyes can see. We've associated each color with a basic class of crusader, bringing it all into the story, and are ever in search of elements to bottle the color’s essence.



A Bit About Our Pigment

When you think of crayons and watercolors, you may not immediately think of the noble-yet-scruffy dwarf who hails from stone and mountain, but the raw pigment used in them must come from somewhere. The story goes that once in the long ago gnomish alchemists made a treaty with dwarven miners to harvest the colorful dusts of their trade to refine and produce the pigments we have in our jars today. Of course the dwarf-folk laughed at their shorter cousins, and called the resulting material "Dandy Dirt," and so they've called it ever since.

Gnomes are suckers for good alliteration.

This is a very fine pigment powder intended for mixing with other substances for use in fine art materials such as crayons, pastels, and paints. The very act of mixing these substances to make usable art materials is a very satisfying process, and one we'd like to share with those of you who have the spirit of an alchemist.

When the captain made her first set of crayons, it was more satisfying for her than any art project she'd done in her life. Some folk are just wired that way, I guess.

Please Read The Warning

WARNING: Our Art Apothecary items come in reusable glass containers with cork tops, and while this keeps the ingredients well and many of us in the trade are accustomed to such packaging, we understand some folk in this world may be more used to twisty-screw-tops.

Should you choose to use the contents we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you take your time, slowly twist, hold firmly, and use a corkscrew tool if you need to. We aren’t kidding. This is a very fine material and while around here a rainbow mess means a good day at the office- some care should still be taken.

Size & Amount:

Sample Size: One mini reusable bottle of Dandy Dirt Pigment contains around 2 teaspoons of glitter. This is great for a small 1-off project that requires just the right amount of shine, or to wrap up and carry as part of an alchemist’s LARP cosplay.

Larger quantities may be available in the future depending on demand.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

We are quite serious about the fine quality of this substance.

Each bottle’s cork is tied down and hold the string with a label for transport.

We are prepared to bottle and ship these treasures immediately from our home-base location.

No matter where your item was shipped from, just send it back to:

When we get the item in our hands we'll send your money back with a bit of sadness in our hearts.

Due to the nature of digital products (can't really "return" them) refunds are only allowed in the most rarest of occasions. A screenshot of error messages sent via Etsy Messages will usually suffice, but in most cases we'd much rather just try a different method of getting you your file.

Please note that 85% of we create ourselves is at least partially processed digitally. Getting from computer to "real thing" is bound to have a few print discrepancies. Colors can be a shade off, placement can be a pixel or five more to the left than you expected. That's just the nature of the beast.
