Schmincke Horadam Watercolours are high quality, professional watercolours that have a few special characteristics. The optimum amount of ox-gall is added to each of the 140 colours to give artists ultimate control with the flow and distribution of colour. 35 new colours have been produced to coincide with the centennary of the death of Josef Horadam, one of the founders of Schmincke & Co.
The binder which is used is Kordofan Gum Arabic from the Southern Sahara region. Like most natural products, the integrity and quality of the Gum Arabic differs from year to year, so Schmincke tests each batch of Gum Arabic every time, to select only the best crop of the respective year.
The paint is also fully reusable when dried on a palette as Schmincke use the same formulation for their tubes and pans. This is unusual as many other brands of watercolour have a different formula for the pans which allows them to extrude the paint like clay and cut it into pieces to put into the pans. Horadam pans are poured four times in a liquid state, allowing the colour to dry for some weeks in a drying chamber. This drying chamber has a certain degree of moisture which settles on the colour between each filling – this means the colours remain rich and easily rewettable.
