Horadam "Big Pan" Watercolor Set
You Save: $70.00 (40%)
Schmincke Horadam, one of the world's finest watercolors, is available for a limited time in this discounted "Big Pan" starter set, packed with tools and extras to get you started. Presented in a playfully oversized version of a Horadam Quinacridone Magenta half pan, this gift-ready set includes everything you need to make beautiful paintings with professional-grade colors.
The centerpiece of the Horadam Big Pan is, of course, the twelve-color watercolor pan set. Horadam watercolors, first patented in 1892 by Schmincke co-founder Josef Horadam, are made with generous quantities of fine art pigments and a formula that's been perfected through more than a century of effort. The 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, especially with this well-selected starter set. Twelve classic colors are included, offering plenty of options for painting portraits, landscapes, cities, and abstract art.
Your Horadam watercolor set comes packaged in a German-made enameled metal travel box. Enameled surfaces are a superior choice for watercolor mixing because they allow the paint to spread evenly, with minimal beading up. You can also clean the enamel coating easily with a damp cloth. The travel box has nine divided spaces to mix colors and folds up into a compact package. There's a loop for your finger on the rear of the case, making it easy to paint standing up.
To complete your painting set, a Da Vinci metal-capped travel brush is included in the versatile #3 Round size. The cap fits onto the back of the short brush, extending it to full size, then closes to protect your brush in transit. To clean the brush, Da Vinci brush soap and a sponge are included.
No starter set would be complete without something to paint on, so the Big Pan includes a Hahnemuhle rough-textured watercolor postcard pad, with 10 acid-free postcards that make an elegant surface for your Horadam colors. We love watercolor postcards, especially for travel and urban sketching, as a way to share your experiences with a friend.
Finally, a couple of fun extras are included in the Big Pan box. A Schmincke Horadam cloth apron is there to protect your shirt during especially vigorous painting sessions. And a Schmincke travel mug is there to hold one of our favorite art essentials: a hot cup of coffee.
Schmincke, Da Vinci, and Hahnemuhle products are made in Germany, with the finest craftsmanship the art materials industry has to offer. They're all in one big box for a limited time only, so don't miss your chance!
