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.
