LIGHTFASTNESS – all colors have from 2 to 3 stars out of a 3-stars rating system. Two stars are ranked even higher because they guarantee that the brightness of one`s artwork will last for more than half a century. Three stars stand for 15-50 years during which the painting keeps its natural look without fading. It is quite enough for watercolors, which require very careful storage due to the susceptibility to fading. Under normal storage conditions, you can preserve your work for a long time and even pass it on from generation to generation. Besides, even being exposed to direct sunlight, it can resist fading.
STUFF – watercolor consists of two major components: blinder – gum arabic and pigments, which are finely ground. High-quality pigments guarantee color saturation, which makes the artwork brighter and more colorful. This way, the color becomes purer, and the images look more realistic.
TRANSPARENCY – this feature as well as the opaqueness of watercolor are of great importance for the artist since taking these details into account, one can create unique effects. In this set, all paints are transparent except for a few ones: Cobalt Blue, Burnt Umber, Payne's Grey, Ivory Black, and Vandyke Brown, which are semi-opaque; Light Oxide Red is opaque, in turn.
QUALITY – pigments are pure while gum arabic is of high quality. The key objective of such a collection is to help artists bring their out of box ideas to life, enjoying the whole process. The colors are vibrant and strongly pigmented. The stuff itself is not toxic and does not pose any threat to one`s health. The quality is good enough to present this set as a gift for both: amateurs and experienced artists. Tubes can be taken anywhere because they are portable. One can paint in watercolor wherever he desires – seashore, art studio, mountain heights, or a rooftop.
