You Save: $21.81 (24%)
Pros know there's no substitute for cadmium pigments. They're expensive and toxic if ingested, but serious painters continue to use cadmium colors because their saturation, opacity, and overall character are not achievable with mixing or non-toxic replacement colors. Cadmiums are also much more lightfast than most newer alternatives. That's why the intensity and pure color of Cadmium Red and Cadmium Yellow are on view at every art museum in the world, in every exhibit dated after their discovery.
If you've never experimented with cadmium pigments (or if you just ran out), here's a Horadam Gouache bundle in celebration of modernity's most exciting inorganic pigment. The colors included are #344 Cadmium Red Light, #236 Cadmium Orange, and #224 Cadmium Yellow Light. All three are versatile colors for any style of painting.
What's that futuristic jar, you ask? Our Horadam Gouache Trios come packed in an indestructible 180 mL Tuff Vial made from polycarbonate. (It's the same kind of plastic used to make those classic reusable water bottles.) Crystal clear and leakproof, Tuff Vials have a million functions in the studio once you unpack your new paints.
Three 15 mL tubes. Made in Germany; curated in St. Louis.
About Horadam Gouache:
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.
We stock all 48 colors of Horadam Gouache. Just click the Color Options tab to browse them all and start assembling your new palette!
Full technical details on Horadam Gouache are available in Schmincke's official brochure, which you can download here.
