About This Product

Schmincke Aqua Drop is a new liquid watercolor that offers brilliant, transparent color in a fluid format that unlocks novel creative possibilities. You can use Aqua Drop with a brush, of course, but you can also use it with your dip pens and in the Schmincke Aqua Liner brush pen (included with this set). You can even use the dropper top to draw and drip directly on your paper, which is a great technique for urban sketching and quick color studies.

Unlike many liquid watercolors, Aqua Drop is made with the same permanent pigments as Schmincke pan and tube watercolor. That means you can use it to create work for long-term display without worrying that it will fade.

Aqua Drop can be used straight (which is a lot of fun, because it's so intense and so easy to apply), diluted with water for pale washes, and mixed with any of your other watercolors. You can easily mix bright secondary colors with Aqua Drop primaries. We also like using this watercolor in thin, overlapping layers, relying on optical blending to create a range of tones and values.

This box set is the perfect place to start with Aqua Drop. It contains five 30 mL dropper bottles of five readily mixable colors: amber, madder red, ink blue, jade green, and sepia. An empty Aqua Liner is also included; simply fill it up with any of the colors of Aqua Drop and use the brush tip to add details and bold shapes to your paintings.

Made in Germany.
