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.

CA Prop 65
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.

Beautiful traditional Watercolour
from Montreal, Canada
Comments about Schmincke Horadam Aquarell Watercolor Pan Sets:
I work a lot with watercolour and I had bought an identical box 50 years ago in Europe, I still have it. I felt the urge to have a brand new one with all the original Schminke colours in it.The colours are rich and spread very well on the paper surface. Each pan lasts long and the colours are brilliant and pure to the very end. I like the box, with a palette side in order to mix.
Beautiful clean colorv
By Writer gal
I have been a watercolor artist for over thirty years. I normally use Winsor &Newton or Daniel Smith paints, but tried Schminke's bright orange paint on the recommendation of another artist. It's clear and bright with no diminishing of the color after drying on the palette.
Love these watercolors!

These are wonderful watercolors in every way!
I use Schmincke watercolors as I live in a very dry climate
By Mature artist
I use. Schmincke watercolors as I live in a very dry climate and this product keeps its moisture content very well in both pans and tubes. I also like the richness of their colors
Schmincke Horadam Artist Watercolors
from West Central Minnesota
I am most pleased with the quality of these watercolors. This product was recommended to me by a fellow artist, so is my first time using them. I will continue to use them in the future.
from South Australia
Schminke watercolours are great but difficult to obtain in Australia.The two colours I ordered are my favourite that I feel I cant get with other brands.
Professional Artist Watercolors
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.
