In order to achieve the highest standard, Schmincke use the best raw materials available. There is no compromise in quality - the highest standards of artists' pigments allow the highest level of lightfastness. Schmincke's watercolour binding medium is Kordofan gum arabic from the Sahara region. Due to it differing from year to year, it is tested and the best of the batch is selected to use with their pigments. They use an optimal amount of ox gall to avoid undesired coloured formations and undissolved pigment, allowing the perfect flow of colour.
