What is a Dot Card? These cards contain genuine HORADAM® SuperGranulation watercolour dots on watercolour paper.
How to use the Dot Card? This Dot Card contains small dabs of all 40 Schmincke HORADAM® SuperGranulation watercolor colours. With a wet brush, the colours can be painted directly in the fields marked with name and number so that the artist experiences the variety of each colour. After drying, the Dot Card can function as a colour chart or to help when choosing and buying colours.
The new HORADAM® Aquarell “Supergranulating Colours” are now available in 15ml tubes as well as sets. 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 granulation effect, in which pigments mass together in places on the paper, to form “super granulation”.
These new colours are formulated with pigments from different colour ranges, so that the granulation effect results in additional colour changes. This novel, natural structure of the colours varies depending on the substrate and the amount of water used. The rougher the paper, the stronger the granulation effect.
All supergranulating HORADAM® AQUARELL colours have 4 and 5 stars lightfastness ratings and contain only pigments already known from HORADAM®. The opacity of the colours is predominantly semi-transparent / semi-opaque.
