      Schmincke Horadam Watercolors                                    

Horadam watercolours are based on traditional formulations patented over 100 years ago, and have received the benefit of continuous innovation in materials and production. They offer outstanding lightfastness and enable the flow of colour to be controlled at all times, even on soft watercolour papers. A minimum of  binder is used, so paint left to dry on the palette is fully usable. Offers great intensity of colour and contains the most valuable pigments in the highest possible concentrations.
