NEW Color FOR 2017!
Formerly known as Helio Blue Reddish, the color has been reformulated and called Phthalo Sapphire Blue - this color now consists of one single pigment.
Schmincke Horadam Watercolors are high quality, professional watercolors that have a few special characteristics. The optimum amount of ox-gall is added to each color to give artists ultimate control with the flow and distribution of color. The binder which is used is Kordofan Gum Arabic from the Southern Sahara region. Like most natural products, the integrity and quality of the Gum Arabic differs from year to year, Schmincke tests each batch of Gum Arabic every time to select only the best crop of the respective year. The paint is fully reusable when dried on a palette as Schmincke use the same formulation for their tubes and pans. This is unusual as many other brands of watercolor have a different formula for the pans which allows them to extrude the paint like clay and cut it into pieces to put into the pans. Horadam pans are poured four times in a liquid state, allowing the color to dry for some weeks in a drying chamber. This drying chamber has a certain degree of moisture which settles on the color between each filling – this means the colors remain rich and easily rewettable.
