Schmincke Akademie watercolour sets, containing half-pans or whole pans of highly brilliant Schmincke Akademie watercolours, presented in a metal box with fold-out palette. The 24 colours of the AKADEMIE® Aquarell, fine artists’ watercolours are a complete basic assortment for beginners. 16 one-pigment-tones as well as a high pigment concentration guarantee highest brilliance, light-fastness and clean colour mixing. The sets are well suited for the beginner and hobby artists. They do not carry Cadmiums. The paint flow is always under control and the paint is fully reusable when dried on a palette. The colour rewets smoothly and lifts easily from the pans. There is no scrubbing needed to get rich colour. You will save wear and tear on brushes by using these quality paints.
These sets are a perennial ‘Staff-Pick’. A favourite for teachers and highly recommended for travel.
“I credit my Akademie Watercolour set for getting me back into painting. After art school and the birth of my son, I had little time and so little space. These compact sets, full of rich colours helped me make art every day. Pop open the case and like magic it is an instant studio. The joy of working with quality products must be experienced.” Kim Fjordbotten, owner of The Paint Spot.
