Holbein Artists' Watercolors
Originally introduced in the early 1920’s and now available in 108 highly concentrated colors, Holbein Artists' Watercolor is a transparent watercolor that preserves the brush handling qualities inherent in Japanese watercolor techniques.
Holbein Artists' Watercolors are spectacularly beautiful and exceptionally brilliant professional watercolors. Made in Japan, they're designed as a European-style transparent watercolor, which preserves the brush handling qualities inherent in Japanese watercolor techniques, allowing you to show your brushstrokes if desired.
Their wide range of colors, including hues unique to Holbein, are formulated from the highest quality pigments that retain their lightfastness for years to come. More finely ground than any other artist watercolor, Holbein Artists' Watercolor is produced without ox-gall, animal by-products or other dispersing agents. This affords the user greater control in the dispersal of their pigments, enhancing handling qualities and delivering color of unequaled intensity, purity and reliability for brilliant transparent washes and powerful, clean darks.
