About This Product
This briefcase-sized set of Horadam Watercolors features 48 colors in luxuriously large full pans, arranged in four metal clip trays and set into a rosewood box. Schmincke's popular 19-well porcelain palette has its own dedicated slot, and a large storage area at the bottom contains two gorgeous brushes.
For the brushes, Schmincke worked with fellow German manufacturer Da Vinci to include two of their finest watercolor instruments: a #8 and #12 Round from the Cosmotop Mix B series. "Mix B" is a blend of squirrel and sable that's engineered to balance control with absorption. The brush handles have a comfortable, tapered shape that won't roll off the table, and they're finished in glossy, mottled blue.
The included Schmincke Porcelain Palette has long been a customer favorite, with a glass-smooth surface and 19 wells in two useful shapes. Ten wells are large and slanted, with more room for water at the bottom, and nine wells are small and flat-bottomed, ideal for concentrated paint.
Schmincke Horadam watercolors are among the world's finest professional-grade colors. First patented in 1892 by Schmincke co-founder Josef Horadam and continuously improved over more than a century of effort, Horadam watercolors are vibrant, smooth, and easy to apply to any kind of watercolor paper. Only the best artist pigments are used; they're milled until the paint becomes creamy and utterly consistent, and each color shines in its pan when water is applied.
