Introducing Custom Color Sets from the color experts at St. Louis Art Supply! Tell us a little about your artistic interests by checking some of the boxes above. We'll hand-pick a set of colors to get you excited about a new medium or refresh your existing collection with some colors you might not have considered before.
You can choose a set with three, six, nine, or twelve colors—so you can dip your toe into the water, or jump right in and let us build you a whole custom palette.
This Custom Color Set features small (5 mL) tubes of Holbein Artists' Watercolor. We've tried pretty much every brand of artist-grade watercolor out there, and Holbein is our absolute favorite. The color selection is beautiful, with great options for both bright colors and natural shades of green and brown. Every color dilutes smoothly to create a wide range of saturations, from ultra dark to subtle and light. Holbein watercolors are satisfyingly transparent, without the chalkiness and opacity of cheaper paints. They're also excellent for mixing, making it easy for you to produce any color you want without muddiness.
The pictured example set shows what you might get if you chose a three-color set with "Cities" and "Bright Colors" selected. Your specific colors will depend on your unique combination of interests and will be chosen just for you by one of us.
Holbein products are manufactured to the very highest standards in Japan.
