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.
Master Set — This set offers 12 beautiful watercolors presented in an elegant slide top wood box.
Extended Full Pan Set — This set, presented in a plastic case, includes 10 new colors that add excitement to your color palette.
Professional Watercolor Set — The set is compact, in a neat plastic case, yet it contains the same broad palette of traditional colors that the great masters were using a century ago. It includes a printed color chart, and 24 pans, each one rated for lightfastness. Pans can be replaced individually to keep the set intact and complete. Please note, the palette configuration of the interior lid may be slightly different than what is pictured.
