The new special edition HORADAM® Aquarell “Supergranulating Colours” are available in 5 cardboard box sets: Deep Sea, Glacier, Galaxy, Forest and Tundra. Each set contains 5 x 5ml special Horadam supergranulating tubes. With these unusual watercolour paints, Schmincke is expanding the possibilities of granulating watercolour painting to include unusual colours with a super-granulating appearance. The combination of at least 2 granulating Horadam pigments intensifies the granulating effect, in which pigments mass together in places on the paper, to form “super granulation”.
The new colours are formulated with pigments from different colour ranges, so that the granulation effect results in additional colour changes. For example, Deep Sea Indigo is a combination of violet and green pigment, while Glacier Brown contains a brown and a green pigment. This novel, natural structure formation of the colours varies depending on the substrate and the amount of water used. The rougher the paper, the stronger the granulation effect.
All 25 Horadam Aquarell special colours have 4 and 5 star lightfast ratings. The opacity of the colours is predominantly semi-opaque/semi-transparent.
