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 full-size (15 mL) tubes of Holbein Artists' Gouache, which is by far the most-requested brand of opaque watercolor among the artists and art instructors we serve. The colors of Holbein gouache are incredibly well-chosen, with excellent brights, earth tones, and lots of different primaries for mixing. You'll notice a brighter, less chalky appearance than other gouache because Holbein uses quite a bit of high-quality pigment in their colors and adds no whitening agents. These colors dry to a velvety matte finish.

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.
