Horadam from Schmincke is a solid aquarelle paint that comes in 110 brilliant, harmonious, coordinated hues (of those, 72 are single pigment hues). The paint stands out because of how well it can be lifted by a brush (even after having dried on a palette) and because of its optimal colour application properties (colour flow is completely controllable even on soft aquarelle paper).
The coverage level of pigmented paint depends on the thickness of the coat and the specific pigment being used. In the case of Horadam the scale runs from glaze (e.g. glaze yellow) to opaque (e.g. vermillion). Although the paint is relatively lightfast (depending on the pigment), aquarelle pictures should not be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time because of the fine and light-sensitive colour application usually associated with watercolour painting. In order to prevent a great amount of change to your colours over time your work can be coated with a UV protective varnish.
Horadam aquarelle paints can be mixed and combined with other Schmincke products like SCHMINCKE ACADEMY AQUARELLE PAINT or SCHMINCKE AUXILLIARIES FOR WATERCOLOURS.
