For over 125 years, Schmincke have made their famous Horadam Watercolours to meet the highest quality requirements for a premium watercolour. In addition to many well-tried and traditional pigments, the standard assortment of 139 colours also contains many new colours using special pigments such as perylenes, quinacridones or transparent iron oxides. The large number of 92 single-pigment colours enables particularly brilliant mixing results and the 22 granulating colours provide special effects (marked with "G" in the colour chart).

Added to the premium assortment are 40 Super Granulating colours. These are watercolours with a special property: the combination of at least two granulating Horadam pigments intensifies this effect to "super granulation". Along with this, colours are formulated with pigments from different colour ranges, resulting in complex colour changes besides the granulation effect.
