These extra-fine, European style transparent watercolors by Holbein are known for their purity, permanence and brilliance. They beautifully preserve brush handling qualities inherent in Japanese watercolor techniques. Because Holbein watercolors contain no oxgall, animal by products or dispersing agents, they move slowly for greater color density and brush control.
Holbein watercolors have a creamy texture that remains smooth when dry and will not crack, crumble, chip or mold in the palette. Use these paints wet out of the tube or fill the wells of a palette with desired colors, allow them to dry, and wet to use as if they were pan colors for easy, more transparent effects.
Colors available in 15ml. tubes
