More details

Including 69 single pigment formulations, combined with only the highest standard Kordofan Gum Arabic binding medium, Horadam Aquarell Watercolour Half Pans offer a superior quality synonymous with the Schmincke brand.

Why choose Schmincke Horadam Aquarell Watercolour Half Pans?

Formed by a unique manufacturing process, Schmincke Horadam Aquarell Watercolour Half Pans contain the same high quality formulation as Aquarell Watercolour Tubes. Pans are filled four times, over a period of four months, with the colours being allowed to dry and settle between each filling. This creates a concentrated half pan, ready for use when wetted with water.

What is water colour?

Water colour is produced by the combination of a pigment with a binder, usually Gum Arabic. This is then applied, with water, to a support such as water colour paper. The pigment fixes to the support upon evaporation of the water. Water colours are water-based, so brushes used to apply the water colour paint need only mild soap and water to clean them after use.

This video illustrates how simple it is to clean and care for water colour brushes.

Why use half pans?

Water colour paint is available in two different formats, tubes and pan. Half Pans are ideal for creating detailed artwork and for using for field work, due to their quick drying properties.

What is better, tube water colour or half pans?

There is no difference in quality between tube water colour and half pans; the difference is in the application. Designed for ease of travel, half pan colours are perfect to use on the go. Half pans are popular with artists who paint infrequently, as the paints may be left for a long periods of time between uses, without affecting their quality. One of the main features of the tubes is controlled measurement of use, applying as little or as much as required by the artist. Big spaces are more easily covered using tube water colour than when using a half pan.

Which surfaces best support Water Colour?

When choosing a Water Colour surface, it is important to consider the absorbency, colour and stability of the paper. Our range of Water Colour Paper & Pads offers an extensive choice of size and style, to meet artists’ every requirement.

Which brushes are best for Water Colour painting?

Water Colour painting requires the brush to hold large amounts of water and paint. Natural hair brushes, particularly Red Sable brushes, tend to be favoured by artists working with Water Colour. With a middle body able to hold a good reservoir of colour, Sable hair has excellent spring and resilience. The hairs are particularly strong at the brush’s fine tip, allowing the brush to be used both delicately and aggressively. Advancements in the production of synthetic hair have resulted in a rise in popularity of Synthetic Water Colour Brushes, especially if price and durability are an issue.

The colour and pigment is fantastic, but I did find mine to have a paste-like consistency in the pan. Doesn't seem to affect performance though
