Watercolour

Transparent Watersoluble Paint

Watercolours are typically done on 140lb watercolour paper that has been sized in such a way that the pigment remains on the surface of the paper. Watercolour typically uses the white of the paper instead of white paint. Color intensity is gradually built up through layering colors. Watercolours are available in 5ml and 15ml tubes or full or half pans (dry watersoluble paint blocks).

Artist Quality paints have a higher pigment to binder ratio allowing for better coverage and higher tinting strength; a little goes a long way. Artist Quality Brands offer wider colour selections, wider range of mediums, and require less paint when colour mixing. Each brand may offer colours exclusive to that brand. It is common practice for artists to mix and match brands to achieve their own unique colour palette.

Student Quality paints are more economically priced and have lower pigment loads compared to artist quality brands. Student Quality brands offer a basic selection of colours offering 'hues' instead of expensive pigments such as Cadmiums and Cobalts.
