Art Spectrum Artists’ Watercolours Professional Quality
In accordance with proven traditional methods of production, all Art Spectrum Artists’ Watercolours are carefully stone milled to enhance the individual brilliance of each carefully selected pigment, and to maximize its handling qualities.
Art Spectrum watercolours have the distinct advantage of being composed only of lightfast pigments Art Spectrum watercolours have a very high pigment content and thus give stronger tints and clean mixes, resulting in outstanding value for money.
From drawing to water colour! Adding a unique dimension to art work, the colour can be applied dry and directly onto paper like a pencil, then wet with water to create stunning, soft water colour washes — even years later. Offering the same exceptional colour performance as Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colours, but in a stick format for increased versatility.
Professional Water Colour Sticks are fully intermixable with Winsor & Newton Water Colour tubes, Water Colour Markers and Mediums. Transportable for use on-the-go as easily as in the studio.

Perfectly concentrated pigments, to ensure that the transparency and brightness of every colour appears true.
Pigments dispersed within a perfectly balanced blend of natural Kordofan gum arabic and glycerine that complement one another and guarantee a solid hold when both dry and wet and that the right amount of colour will penetrate the surface.
Extraordinarily transparent. Every single colour can provide extreme washes and intense, deep shades, which work in unison to define even the smallest of details with powerful chromatic strength.

- 19 opaque colours (21%).
MaimeriBlu is carefully processed using artisanal methods throughout every stage of manufacture, and undergoes individual checks. Pigments are processed in refining machines, whose settings are fine-tuned to achieve the right balance between the fine grain size and the purity of the colour. Uniform grain size: 5 microns.
Sections in watercolour paintings which should remain blank, can easily be treated with ammonia-free masking fluid like the practical Aqua masking pen.
While other comparable products today still contain ammonia (due to the use of natural latex), Schmincke eliminated this pungent ingredient (indicated by the danger symbol) already several years ago.
Instead, the Schmincke masking fluids are made from synthetic – and therefore ammonia-free – raw material which has the same properties as comparable products.
The AQUA masking pen from Schmincke is available in two versions:
Transparent neutral (50 730) and blue (50 731), the latter to be used on a white background for better contrast.
