Stockmar Watercolour Paints are known for their excellent clarity, natural transparency, light-resistance, and scumbling properties. The colour range follows the extended version of Goethe’s ‘Theory of Colours’. Each tone has been adjusted so that it can be mixed well with the others. Harmonious intermediate gradations and boundary-less colour blending are also possible when using the wet-on-wet technique.
They can be used with all usual watercolouring techniques. Stockmar watercolours are ideal for transparent painting and when mixed with white can be used for non-transparent painting. They are produced from gum arabic and the finest light-resistant colour pigments have a very high yield-value and remain completely water-soluble when dry. The colour tones have been chosen so that they can be mixed to yield all intermediate shades without losing their brilliance and intensity.
These wonderful non-toxic paints have been tried and tested in art education at schools and in kindergartens and this range will bring hours of creative joy and expression to children and adults alike.
