Holbein Watercolours produce brilliant transparent washes as well as powerful clean darks when used in more concentrated applications. A European style transparent watercolour, Holbein watercolour preserves the brush handling qualities inherent in traditional Japanese watercolour techniques. Without ox-gall or other dispersing agents, Holbein watercolour moves slowly, permitting greater colour density and brush control. It is a colour line with a consistent creamy texture that remains smooth when dry without cracking, crumbling, chipping or moulding in the palette. It may be re-wetted easily like a pan colour when in tube form. Simply fill the wells of a suitable palette with the desired colour selection, permit to dry, then wet the colour when needed.
