APISCOR ~ WATERCOLOUR PAINT ~ 6 PRIMARY COLOURS IN BOXAP067
Apiscor watercolour paints are vibrant light-filled colours for wet-on-wet painting.
Developed in consultation with Steiner teachers in Brazil, they are easy to mix and have very pleasant scent due to the addition of honey in their formula.
They are silky in their application and apply beautifully to the paper and remain water soluble when dry.
Box of six contains three cool primary colours and three warm primary colours:
- Lemon Yellow
- Golden Yellow
- Carmine Red
- Prussian Blue
- Ultramarine Blue
6 x 25g jars
Brushes not Included
Made in Brazil
As its name suggests, watercolour has to be diluted with water to make its colour transfer to the paper. Unlike acrylic and oil paint that stay essentially where they are applied – and also dry as apllied – watercolour has a “independent” movement that has to be taken into account by the artist, as water is an active element of the picture.
This is the greatest challenge and pleasure of working with watercolour, the option to hold back or release this water movement. However, this method of painting offers a unique transparency that is very hard to achieve with other paint types.
The most common support for watercolour is heavy paper, which may have different textures (porosity). We sell 140gsm wet on wet paper and 200gsm heavy duty wet on wet paper separately.
