In Russia, many great traditions in the fine arts date back to the time of the czars. In the 21st century, Yarka St. Petersburg Watercolor Pans are still manufactured using traditional materials and techniques, and with great care and craftsmanship. The color specialists who oversee Yarka production each have over 40 years of experience.
All the pigments, including cobalt and cadmium pigments, are Russian-made in a factory that has been known for its quality for over a century. Unlike other watercolors which are made with the dry, compressed extrusion process, St. Petersburg Watercolors are liquid poured — a process preserving the integrity of each pigment and resulting in semi-moist pans that respond instantly to a wet brush.
