Holbein Artists’ Watercolor is a an extra-fine, European-style transparent watercolor known for its purity, permanence and brilliance, but also preserves the brush handling qualities inherent in Japanese watercolor techniques. Because it contains no oxgall, animal by-products or other dispersing agents, Holbein watercolor moves slowly, allowing for greater color density and brush control. (All of the colors except for Ivory Black can also be considered vegan.) It has a creamy texture that remains smooth when dry and will not crack, crumble, chip or mold in the palette. To use as a pan color, simply fill the wells of a palette with the desired color, permit to dry, then wet the color.
