Welcome to dickblick
Schmincke has been developing and manufacturing its Horadam line of watercolors since 1881, and the company is now owned by the fourth generation of the original family. Today the Horadam line includes 110 colors, 70 of them formulated with a single pigment. Each color has its own individually optimized formula.
Schmincke has a reputation for using only the highest-quality natural gums, water-soluble resins, and pigments. For example, the company uses only Kordofan Gum Arabic from the southern Sahara region, and distinguishes between good and bad harvests or "vintages" of this natural resin as it selects its raw materials.
Horadam Watercolors are available in 15 ml (.51 oz) tubes. Made in Germany.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Horadam colors can be lifted from a dried palette without forming small bubbles. Colors that have dried on the palette can be reused an unlimited number of times.
Horadam makes limited use of ox gall as a dispersant. Colors flow evenly and are fully intermixable. This helps the artist maintain full control of color, even on softer papers.

I use a three professional brands of artist watercolors, Schmincke Horadam is one of those. I am very pleased with the performance of this watercolor and how nicely it works with the paper I use as well.

Absolute Top Quality -- Review
from Seaside, OR
If you havent tried Schmincke.. its very much worth the price. We do get what we pay for.. its a fact with watercolor paints.My two most used colors, as a watercolorist, are Payne's Grey and Indigo. The pigmentation is brilliant, lush. Its blending is smooth and strong. I've included two photos. One of each.I hope this helps in anyone needing to make a decision on Schmincke HORADAM Aquarell.

Worth every penny! Georgia O' Keeffe always said it is best to buy the very finest materials when creating a piece of art. I believe in purchasing the best products. This watercolor is full of color pigment.

intense, vibrant watercolors
These watercolors are worth every penny! I highly recommend them for the serious painter. They come in a variety of colors; fun trying new shades. Try them and you will not use any other brand again.

Comments about Schmincke Horadam Aquarell Watercolor Pan Sets:
Pigments are really rich and vivid, so a little goes a long way. It's a worthwhile investment for the professional artist and I wish I had purchased this set sooner! Also, customer service at Dick Blick is excellent! I purchased the set online and saw later that the price listed in the current catalogue was less. They refunded me the difference in a matter of minutes!
Nice, color - cobalt light perfect for skies
from San Antonio, TX
In general, I use Daniel Smith paints, but I've tried several brands and wanted to give this one a try so I tried a tubes of manganese violet and a cobalt blue. Both are excellent colors but I really like the cobalt. It makes wonderful skies!
