Schmincke HORADAM AQUARELL Watercolours

Schmincke HORADAM AQUARELL finest artists' watercolours are a range of 110 colours selected to ensure maximum possible lightfastness.  With 98 different pigments, including 65 single pigment colours, clean, brilliant mixing results are guaranteed.  HORADAM AQUARELL possess excellent spreading capacity and are completely reusable after drying on the palette.  The flow of colour remains easily controllable, even on soft watercolour papers.  HORADAM AQUARELL watercolour pans are poured with the same exact creamy formula that goes into the tubes, so the first stroke of a wet brush captures the maximum pigment load, unlike other professional watercolour pans.  This is made possible by a unique 4 stage pouring process, after which each layer is allowed to dry for between 8 and 14 days.  This time consuming process guarantees uniform colour, even application, and ease of removal from the painting ground, as well as excellent flow properties.

All 110 HORADAM AQUARELL colours are available in 5ml tubes and half pans.
