QoR Modern Watercolors

Made using an exclusive binder that provides more pigment with every stroke, QoR Modern Watercolors have all the subtlety, transparency, and flow of a great traditional watercolor, yet the colors embody the fire and vibrance of the best acrylic or oil paint — even after drying. It's fair to say QoR's color strength, range, and versatility are simply unmatched in the history of watercolors.

Made by Golden Artist Colors, a legendary American paint maker, QoR (pronounced "core") Modern Watercolors were developed with input by leading watercolor artists. The name comes from a technical acronym meaning "Quality of Results." Artists can choose from 83 high-intensity colors and experience:

  • Incredibly smooth transitions
  • Good flow and liveliness on the paper
  • Vivid color depth in one stroke
  • More density of color than traditional watercolors
  • Amazing vibrance after drying
  • Excellent resolubility in water
  • Excellent glazing qualities
  • Greater resistance to embrittlement

This exceptional performance is thanks to Golden's unique polymer binder called Aquazol, which is exclusive to QoR. Not only does it enable incredible color effects, it offers greater flexibility and resistance to cracking than traditional watercolor binders.
