Schmincke Horadam Naturals Dragon’s Blood

Horadam Naturals Dragon’s Blood is a semi-transparent, woody red watercolour with very good lightfastness. The dye is named after an ancient legend involving a bloody battle between an elephant and a dragon, those blood mixed on the ground, giving rise to a tree. The resinous secretions of the dragon‘s blood tree are reddish-brown and used to produce the pigment.

Schmincke Dragon's Blood

HORADAM Naturals is a high quality, environmentally friendly, and vegan watercolour. With a palette of 16 matte and mostly semi-/transparent colours, it offers an unique combination of watercolour and gouache properties allowing creativity in its purest form. For even more colour variety, the Naturals colours can be mixed and combined with all watercolour and gouache paint.

Natural, precious pigments 

The outstanding feature of HORADAM Naturals is the use of exclusively natural earth and plant based pigments and extracts. The genuine juice of the indigofera plant or the resin of the dragon’s blood tree enables plant-based colours. The use of exceptional earth pigments leads to precious colours like Lalvarit violet or Caucasus earth. All pigments used were carefully selected. The lightfastness of each pigment corresponds to the natural characteristics of the pigments.

100% vegan and naturally formulated

The aspiration for a vegan and naturally formulated watercolour leads to properties that distinguish this colour from a pure watercolour or gouache. It therefore takes a certain amount of familiarization and understanding of the characteristics that distinguish these colours:

The natural pigments are sometimes slightly coarser in texture, which – unlike gouache – results in a rougher, usually slightly granular surface effect.

The consistency of the colours is a little tougher, so that the colours do not flow as easily as with watercolours. This makes the colour more controllable, comparable to a gouache.

Some colours, such as Curcuma and Stil de Grain, have a wide range of colours due to their high glazing properties. While Curcuma enables yellow to orange colour strokes, Stil de Grain has a yellow-green to greenish-brown colour. This characteristic is very similar to a watercolour.

Due to their use, there may also be slight colour variations in some shades within different batches. This is not a quality defect. Anyone who makes use of these properties will quickly learn to appreciate the special nature of Naturals colour shades.

The finest HORADAM Naturals watercolours are available in 15 ml tubes and as 2 sets.
