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 six, nine, twelve, or 24 colors—so you can dip your toe into the water, or jump right in and let us build you a whole custom palette. A free enameled travel box with thumb loop and plenty of mixing space is included with every one of these sets. Sets with 12 or fewer colors come in a 12-slot tin, and sets with more than 12 colors come in a 24-slot tin.

This set includes hand-selected colors from one of the world's finest watercolor lines: Schmincke Horadam, patented in 1892 and named for Josef Horadam, co-founder of Schmincke. Horadam watercolors are made with generous quantities of fine art pigments and a formula that's been perfected through more than a century of effort.

Horadam colors range from beautifully transparent to intensely opaque, and all of them lift easily from the pan and flow freely on watercolor paper. Blending is easy because over 100 Horadam colors are single-pigment formulations. That means less muddiness and bright, clear mixed hues across the entire color wheel.

We strongly recommend these German watercolors for all kinds of subject matter, including urban sketching, landscape painting, portraiture, and abstract art. The dizzying array of 140 colors includes something for everyone; so, no matter what your interests, we'll be able to choose a highly satisfying set for you.

Please note that Custom Sets are selected by our experts and offered at a discount, so we cannot honor requests for specific colors. Please use the notes field only to tell us more about your interests or to exclude colors you already own. If you want to choose specific colors, we offer Horadam watercolors in individual pans and pre-selected sets.
