Set of 5 x 30ml Schmincke Aqua Drop plus 1 x Aqua Drop Liner.
Colours included: Umber, Madder Red, Ink Blue, Jade Green and Sepia.

Schmincke Aqua Drop is a concentrated, highly lightfast, liquid watercolour in 24 transparent colours plus an opaque white. It comes in a 30ml pipette bottle, can be thinned with water, remains resoluble on the palette, and is fully compatible with Horadam Watercolour.

Aqua Drop is perfect for watercolourists, urban sketchers, calligraphers, fashion designers and cartoonists.

Aqua Drop is perfectly suited to large watercolour painting, spreading easily whether using a brush or dropped directly from the pipette onto wet paper to blossom and bleed. You can quickly fill areas with either wash or density, without having to first break down tube or pan colour. It also offers a high degree of control for detail, line and calligraphy painting techniques especially when using Aqua Drop with the empty refillable Aqua Drop Liner with brush tip. Aqua Drop can even be used through the finest airbrush.

Aqua Drop is so strong, you only need a drop!

Schmincke began at the end of the 19th Century, when the colour chemists Josef Horadam and Hermann Schmincke saw an opportunity to provide the artists of the day with a truly superior artists oil, and so set out to Italy where traditional studio painting was still taught, in search of the nearly forgotten resin oil formulations.
In 1881, at the Academy of Fine Art in Florence, they secured the precision formulations of the Professor Cesare Mussini, a guardian of the old masters techniques, and on these formulations, the two founded their manufacturing establishment under the name H.Schmincke and Co.

In subsequent years, artists’ colours to suit all techniques were introduced, such as Josef Horadam’s patent watercolours of 1892. Through the entire 20th century, every generation of owner has lead the company to its current position as one of the worlds leading manufacturers of finest artists’ colour.
