Schmincke has been producing its Horadam line of watercolors since 1881.
Each color has its own independently optimized recipe made of the finest pigments, Ox gall, and traditional binders to produce colours of exceptional brilliance, purity and the highest possible lighfastness. There is no compromise in quality.
Schmincke use an optimal amount of oxgall to avoid undesired coloured formations and undissolved pigment, allowing the perfect flow of colour and their binding medium is Kordofan Gum Arabic from the Sahara region. Due to it the gum differing from year to year it is tested and the best of the batch is selected to use with their pigments.
Horadam colors can be raised from a dried palette without developing globules. Colors that have dried on the palette can be awakened with a wet brush and reused an infinite number of times.
Schmincke colours are fully intermixable. This helps the artist maintain full control of color, even on softer papers. A wide range of colours can be mixed with this set of 12 tubed paints.
Schmincke is also the only watercolour manufacturer in the world that uses the exact same formula for their tube and pan colours.
