Holbein Artist Watercolours


To order colours, select colour swatch below.

Holbein watercolors produce brilliant transparent washes as well as powerful clean darks when used in more concentrated applications. Engineered to surpass the quality standards set by both North American and European manufacturers, Holbein watercolors are widely preferred around the world for the unique handling qualities. Holbein watercolor ranks as the world’s finest.

A European style transparent watercolor, Holbein watercolor also preserves the brush handling qualities inherent in traditional Japanese watercolor techniques. Without ox-gall or other dispersing agents, Holbein watercolor moves slowly, thus permitting greater color density and brush control. It is a color line with a consistent creamy texture that remains smooth when dry without cracking, crumbling, chipping or molding in the palette.

It may be re-wetted easily like a pan color. For this reason Holbein does not produce watercolors in pan form but allows artists to create their own selection. Fill the wells of a suitable palette with the desired color selection. Permit to dry, then wet the color when needed.

Colours are available in 5ml and 15 ml tubes
