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.

This luxurious wood box set of Horadam watercolors includes an enormous range of colors in 48 half pans. With so many colors to choose from, you'll be able to paint any kind of subject in any style. Try using this set for landscapes, urban sketching, botanical painting, portraiture, abstract art, and pretty much anything else you can think of.

This set is the most beautiful way to own and store Horadam watercolors: a dark wood box with gold details and a Schmincke porcelain palette inside the lid. A cloth ribbon makes it easy to lift the palette out of the box, and underneath are metal rails to hold the set's 48 colors. There's extra space for a few more pans, so you can customize your set. It's an elegant, weighty set, the pride of any watercolor studio.

The Schmincke Horadam 48 Half Pan Set is a wonderful choice for any serious watercolorist, and it's a thoughtful gift for anyone who appreciates craftsmanship and quality materials.
