About This Product
This new limited edition watercolor set from Schmincke really shines! Including nine bright colors from the regular Horadam lineup and nine special shimmer colors that are only available in limited edition sets, this metal travel box has everything you need to make paintings that sparkle and glow. The regular colors are fully mixable with the pearl and metallic colors, and everything in this box works with all of Schmincke's other watercolors. So you can paint any color and any scene with this shiny limited edition set!
All 18 half pans are packaged in a Schmincke enameled metal travel box that clicks shut for secure transport and opens to reveal plenty of mixing space. It's easy to clean the enameled surface, even if you let the paint dry. In fact, you can lift and reuse dried Horadam watercolors with a wet brush—even the metallic colors. Everything is made with the same professional-grade materials and craftsmanship that have made the Schmincke name so trusted around the world.
The regular colors included are Titanium Opaque White, Cadmium Yellow Light, May Green, Quinacridone Gold Hue, Geranium Red, Magenta, Helio Cerulean, French Ultramarine, and Ivory Black. This lineup includes some of the more expensive colors from the Horadam family and will enable you to mix very bright and saturated colors.
The metallic and pearl colors included are White Gold, Yellow Pearl, Red Pearl, Magenta Pearl, Blue Pearl, Cyan Blue Pearl, Green Pearl Bluish, Ochre Pearl, and Black Pearl. It's a gorgeous array of shimmery options with the maximum amount of pigment and shine possible. Many metallic watercolors are either shiny but not vibrantly colored or bright in color but not that shiny, but with these colors, there's no need to compromise.
Each Limited Edition Shimmer Set includes a blank swatch card for you to fill in with your new colors, so you can refer to it while you paint and see how each pigment will look on white paper.
Please note that supplies are limited, and once this set is gone, it's gone forever!
Made in Germany.
About Schmincke Horadam Watercolors:
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 for the 140 colors that make up today's Horadam lineup. They're milled until the paint becomes creamy and utterly consistent, and each color shines in its pan when water is applied.
Even the process of filling Horadam pans is special. Each pan is liquid-filled from the same watercolor that's in Horadam tubes, then allowed to dry four times in a process that takes several weeks from start to finish. The result is an incredibly concentrated dry pan that reactivates instantly when you touch it with a wet brush. Scrub a little bit and you'll have intense color, ready to apply to your notebook or pad.
