Watercolor Paint

Make a splash with watercolor paints! Choose from watercolor tubes, watercolor pans, and liquid watercolors. Find the best watercolor paint for your skill level and technique. Watercolors can be used on paper and other absorbent surfaces that have been primed to accept waterbased paint.

Watercolor Paint Tubes contain a full pigment load suspended in a watersoluble binder, generally natural gum arabic. Use them on paper and other absorbent surfaces that have been primed to accept waterbased paint.

Watercolor Pans, available in professional and student grades, offer pigment and binder in a dry form. Apply water with a brush to moisten the pan and lift pigment. Use a palette with indentations to mix colors. Watercolor pans are ideal for field or outdoor painting and small-scale work.

Liquid Watercolors contain dyes as well as pigments, suspended in an aqueous medium. Because they are moist and fluid, they're suited to thin washes and airbrush application as well as conventional brushwork. Many of the more brilliant colors are fugitive (not lightfast), so liquid watercolors are often used for illustrations that will be scanned for reproduction.

Student Watercolors have working characteristics similar to professional watercolors but with lower concentrations of pigment and a smaller range of colors. More expensive pigments are generally replicated by hues.

Kids' and Classroom Watercolor Pans contain inexpensive pigments and dyes suspended in a synthetic binder. Washable formulas feature colors that are chosen to be non-staining, easily washable, and suitable for use by young children with proper supervision. They're an excellent choice for teaching beginning artists painting techniques and basic color theory.
