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.

Comments about Schmincke Horadam Aquarell Watercolor Pan Sets:
Top-quality paints. In fact, the quality of the paint may be unparalleled. However, it was a very expensive set and my biggest issue is the quality of the metal container that it's presented in. The metal is flimsy and after the paints are unwrapped they have difficulty going back in the slots. That amount of money the quality of the tin should be much much better.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

MY FAVORITE WATERCOLORS
By The Old Gypsy
from Broomall, PA
I love these watercolors. I use them for my professional work when only the best will do. The colors are brilliant and the quality can't be surpassed. They are a bit pricey but well worth the extra expense.
THE Superior Schminicke Horadam Aquarelle Artists' Watercolo
from Ranchos De Taos, NM
I use both the tubes and pan colors for my work. The Schminicke colors, as well as the ease of mixing them, make the most amazing variations of depth and space.

from Brentwood CA
It is the best! Solid pigment color! I may use this just for the sake of watercolor. Initially I bought it for workup in color for my oil painting, but it is so glorious I plan to dabble in the medium due to the quality.
I got the transparent orange. It's a nice transparent orange. :D
Easy access to the best!

The last few years I have used Schmincke watercolors for small sketches like postcards using a good quality paper and small landscapes, sometimes elaborating with a pen.The great thing about these water colors is the density and color. I haven't found anything that is not great about Schmincke watercolors. I understand why they cost more than some others.

Beautiful traditional Watercolour
from Montreal, Canada
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.
