Holbein Artists' Watercolors, dedicated to excellence, are produced in Japan, the oldest professional watercolor market in the world. Japanese colors are renowned for their brilliance, and Holbein continues in the same tradition.
A European style transparent watercolor, Holbein watercolor also preserves the brush handling qualities inherent in traditional Japanese watercolor techniques. Without oxgall or other dispersing agents, Holbein watercolor moves slowly, thus permitting greater color density and brush control. It is a color line with a consistent creamy texture that remains smooth when dry without cracking, crumbling, chipping or molding in the palette. It may be re-wetted easily like a pan color. For this reason Holbein does not produce watercolors in pan form but allows artists to create their own selection.
Fill the wells of a suitable artist palette with the desired color selection. Permit to dry, then wet the color when needed. Holbein watercolors produce brilliant transparent washes as well as powerful clean darks when used in more concentrated applications. Engineered to surpass the quality standards set by both North American and European manufacturers, Holbein Artists' Watercolors is widely preferred around the world for its handling qualities. The Holbein Artists' Watercolor collection contains many exceptional and brilliant colors that are not found in other watercolor lines. Holbein watercolor ranks as the world’s finest.
Available in 15 ml. tubes.
