About This Product
Schmincke Horadam Gouache is a professional-grade opaque watercolor with intense color and natural opacity. No white is added to these superior gouache colors; they have their strong covering power and velvet matte finish because they contain the maximum possible pigments per milliliter of gum arabic binder.
During our studio test, we were delighted with the indulgent smoothness of Horadam Gouache. It dilutes easily, without breaking, maintaining a pleasant body even when lots of water is added. Unlike cheaper alternatives, Horadam Gouache allows your brush to glide, not stutter and stick. Finally, we were impressed with the colors, which are easily the most saturated we have seen in any line of gouache.
With a bit of water, dry Horadam Gouache can be lifted from paper, and any paint left to dry on your palette can be reactivated with water and used again.
This metal travel box with 10 colors of Horadam Gouache contains full-size, 15 mL tubes. The box is enamel-coated, so the mixing space is perfectly suited to color mixing and cleans easily with water. Metal rails in the tin hold the tubes in place, and the empty space at the bottom is long enough for most short-handled watercolor brushes.
The colors included in this set are Titanium White #102, Lemon Yellow #220, Cadmium Yellow Hue #226, Cadmium Red Hue #342, Madder Lake Deep #354, Ultramarine Deep #464, Helio Green Bluish #520, Titanium Gold Ochre #640, Burnt Sienna #648, and Ivory Black #787.
