This special release set of 12 Schmincke Horadam Watercolours are presented in a delightful and sturdy black metal tin with white enamelled internal colour for accurate colour mixing. A unique bonus of this set is the inclusion of 12 empty half pans to add further to the range by squeezing colour into pans. It is a special feature of the Schmincke formulation that allows their Horadam tube colours to be squeezed into pans with the colour remaining re-wettable without cracking.
Schmincke is the only watercolor manufacturer in the world that uses the exact same formula for their tube and pan colours. Other manufacturers extrude their pan colours. Schmincke hand pours the same watercolour paint that is in their tubes into their half pan range. Then the pans are left to air dry. This process is repeated three more times. The pan colours are consistent all the way to the bottom, and they last and last!
