Holbein Transparent Watercolours Holbein the principal supplier to the world's oldest professional watercolour market offers a classically ground moist transparent watercolour of unsurpassed purity and permanence and unequalled consistency and brilliance. Reproducing the characteristics of handground pigments of the Renaissance Holbein grinds its pigments as many as 4 times in gum arabic to standards of perfection at each stage of production which far exceed industry standards. Although Holbein Watercolours are manufactured in Japan they are a European type transparent watercolour. The Japanese are known for producing opaque watercolours which offer exceptional handling qualities. Holbein has used this knowledge to produce a transparent watercolour which exhibit these same qualities. European transparent watercolours generally use ox gall as a wetting agent to increase the flow of colour on the paper. Holbein produces their colours without ox gall or any other dispersing agent which allows for less movement of the colour on paper. The results are more brush control and greater colour density control for the artist. Holbein watercolours have a consistent creamy texture for mixing with a deep clear clean colour tone which remains brilliant even when watered down to light hues. Truly one of the world""s finest watercolours. Available in 84 colours in both 5ml and 15ml tubes. We offer this exquisite line at an Everday Discount of 40% Off!
