Holbein Artists' Acryla Gouaches Single & Sets. Acryla Gouache is an ideal medium available to the artist, designer, illustrator, and student. Acryla Gouache has 102 highly pigmented colors, including 10 metallic and 4 luminous finishes, in an acryl resin which will dry to the same smooth mat finish as does the Holbein Designers’ Gouache in gum arabic.
• Acryla Gouache moves, reacts, blends and feels like traditional gouache, but is effectively waterproof once fully dry. It is rated for light-fastness, adapted to the Munsell color standard for hue, value and chroma and is made from the purest pigments available. Acryla Gouache may be used as a successful ground that will not contaminate over painted layers. It will not shift in color tone from liquid to dried color. Hence, what you see wet is what you get when dry. Acryla Gouache does not have as fragile a surface as traditional gouache in gum arabic and is compatible with all other water soluble media regardless of origin. An ideal medium for hobbyists and bird carvers as well.
• Made in Japan

Holbein Artists' Water Color Paints - Single and Sets
A European style transparent watercolor, Holbein watercolor also preserves the brush handling qualities inherent in traditional Japanese watercolor techniques. Without ox-gall or other dispersing agents, Holbein watercolor moves slowly, thus permitting greater color density and brush control. It is a color line with a consistent creamy texture that remains smooth when dry without cracking, crumbling, chipping or molding in the palette. It may be re-wetted easily like a pan color. For this reason, Holbein does not produce watercolors in pan form but allows artists to create their own selection. Holbein watercolor ranks as the world’s finest.
