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.

12 color full pans in metal case are perfect for the travel and journal sketching I enjoy. Am appreciating the quality of these paints over the various student grade paints I'd been using. Worth the moola!

Some of my favorites
from East Hampton, New York
The only issue with this brand I have is with the tubes, the lids always get jammed up. But I love the paints so its worth the hassle.

Exceptionaly brilliant colors
By Tilda Paintsalot
from Minneapolis , MN
I discovered this brand in a book by a watercolorist. I was not familiar with this brand but it delivered absolutely intense color. It makes a great range of values that are still fresh looking. I would buy more of these as needed. The price was very good for the quality of the paint. They come in larger size tubes.
Great pigment load
By Lucy Lu
Schmincke watercolors are beautiful loaded with pigment and has a high selection of transparent watercolors. These are the finest paints I've come across. The brilliant purple and red violet are just so gorgeous and beautiful WOW. The transparent orange is great to mix with sap green to make a beautiful deeper green for landscapes. The dark blue indigo is great for backgrounds and/or to make some beautiful dark greens too. I could go on and on about the hues, its fun exploring what these hues can do.

Rich pigmentation, lovely to work with!
Top Quality Paint
I have used watercolor pan paint in a metal tin box for years. I decided to add a few new colors and squirted tube paint into empty pans - will let sit in open air till it hardens then add these to my metal box. Schmincke is a top quality paint. Always use the best materials you can.

The pigment load and consistancy make these water colors one of my favorite go tos. Pricey but worth every penny.
