To achieve the outstanding characteristics, like reusable paint when dried on a palette and the high control of paint flow even on soft water-colour papers Schmincke only use the best raw materials. In its colouristic appearance the total assortment is particularly harmonious, balanced and complete.

One main ingredient of the water-colour binding medium is Kordofan Gum Arabic from the southern Sahara region. Like most natural products this traditional water-colour binding medium differs from year to year. Therefore Schmincke is testing Gum Arabic every time before purchase and selects only the best crop of the respective year. This adds small but significant quality advantages. Other formula ingredients are selected equally carefully and of course are integrated in each formula in an individual optimised way to obtain a harmonious assortment, that can be easily picked up by the brush.

Another traditional quality criterion is the re-usability of the Horadam Aquarell water-colours while using the same formulation for tubes and pans. Both properties, the reusability and the control of the paint flow can only be achieved by pouring water-colours into pans in a liquid state, which is really unique.

Review by Feefo
Scmincke Horadam watercolours are excellent, I would thoroughly recommend them. If the tube colours do dry out after use they disperse very easily when water is added. Sap Green is a natural green, but when mixed with Translucent Orange produces olive greens and when mixed with Pthalo Blue produces deep bluish greens. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

This must be brightest sap green I've ever bought. (Posted on 16/03/2017)
Review by Tony
On it's own merits it's a very pleasant and well behaved paint but it was not quite what I was expecting having got used to Winsor and Maimeriblu versions which are themselves very similar. This is so different ( less saturated and significantly more yellow) that I wondered if it had been mislabelled as it more closely resembles Hookers Green. (Posted on 19/05/2016)
