Horadam Watercolors Outperform All The Rest!

Schmincke has been producing its Horadam line of watercolors since 1881.

Each color has its own independently optimized recipe made of the finest pigments, Ox gall, and traditional binders.

Schmincke uses only Kordofan Gum Arabic from the southern Sahara a natural resin binder. Horadam colors can be raised from a dried palette without developing globules. Colors that have dried on the palette can be awakened with a wet brush and reused an infinite number of times.

Schmincke limits use of ONETZ (ox gall) as a dispersant. This helps the artist maintain full control of color, even on softer papers.

  • Made in Germany
  • Highest possible lightfastness: 112 tones

Most of the Horadam watercolors are non-granulating and have an even paint flow, but 22 colors are granulating. You can spot granulating colors by the G stamped on the tube.

Granulation is caused by:

  1. Heavy pigment particles, like cobalt, settling in paper indentations.
  2. Light pigment particles clustering together due to attraction.

You can mix super granulating colors to create unusual color shifts. The granulating color shift will vary with the mixing ratio used.

What is the right paper for granulation? The rule is: The rougher the paper, the greater the granulating effect. More absorbent papers need a little more water. Hot-pressed paper is unsuitable for granulating effects.
