Watercolour Paints

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 maximise its handling qualities, Art Spectrum watercolours have the distinct advantage of being composed only of lightfast pigments – for instance, Alizarin Crimson is not offered in the range because it is known to be fugitive. This has been replaced with a lightfast Permanent Crimson. Art Spectrum watercolours have a very high pigment content and thus give stronger tints and clean mixes. This fact, combined with the larger 10ml tubes, provides the watercolourist with outstanding value for money.

We carry the full range of Art Spectrum Watercolours.

Maimeri Blu are being claimed by many artists as the best watercolours in the world. They offer purity and clarity like no other brand. The binder is Gum Arabic from Kordofan in Sudan, a material of high value of which is recognised internationally. Moreover, particular attention is given to the total quality control process and the most precise scientific methods are employed to control the viscosity, optimum pigment size and consistent colour shading. All colours are intermixable without ever losing their clarity and brilliance, and are guaranteed to offer the highest degree of lightfastness possible for that pigment. On coming into contact with water Maimeri Blu will dissolve rapidly and in a homogenous way.
