Watercolour or Aquarelle is made from pigment suspended in a watersoluble binder. The binder used in modern Watercolour Paint is usually Gum Arabic which is a natural gum derived from the acacia tree. Plasticisers like glycerin or honey may be added to improve the fluidity of the watercolour.
Watercolour Painting is often considered as one of the hardest and unforgiving paints to master as every brush stroke on the paper is visible. But the pleasure from using the jewel like qualities of this transparent paint makes this one of the most popular artists' mediums.
We stock the following Watercolour Paints:
Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolour Paint
