About This Product
This gorgeous leather gift set of Horadam watercolors is a limited edition from Schmincke, available while supplies last. The case is soft, thick, and designed to age gracefully, with a simple leather tie to keep it closed. It perfectly holds a long tin of Horadam colors, with 12 half pans and space for 12 more.
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. You can see how it works in the video we've included in this listing. 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.
Included in this limited set is a special selection of Horadam half pans, with an emphasis on bright colors that make clean, high-chroma mixes. The colors included are Lemon Yellow, Quinacridone Gold Hue, Transparent Orange, Geranium Red, Magenta, Perylene Violet, French Ultramarine, Helio Cerulean, Phthalo Green, May Green, Perylene Green, and Neutral Tint.
These twelve half pans are contained in a fold-out metal travel box with finger loop and plenty of enameled mixing space. Enamel is a great mixing surface because the paint spreads out with minimal beading up. It's also very easy to clean.
This handsome travel set is a wonderful choice for any serious watercolorist, and it's a thoughtful gift for anyone who appreciates craftsmanship and quality materials.
