Stockmar Watercolour Paint Set in Tin 12 Opaque Colours
With this box of Opaque Colours you have chosen a product offering the Artists quality you have come to expect from Stockmar.
The artistically shaped box and classic metal design contains 12 colour tabs. Each square can easily be taken out for quick replacements. The Stockmar mixing palette is not attached to the box so you can put it down wherever is most convenient for your work and of course it will be easier to clean than a painting box lid that is being used as a palette. In addition your Stockmar box of Opaque colours contains a tube of Opaque white and a top quality Cats Tongue Brush that holds its shape made of Ponex synthetic hair and produced for Stockmar by the tradition-conscious German brush manufacturer Zahn.
Like all of our Stockmar paints and colours we have relied on Goethes colour circle but in an extended version. The three basic or primary colours form a triangle; between them are the secondary colours formed by mixing the adjacent primaries : green from yellow and blue orange from yellow and red and violet from red and blue. The colours opposite to one another are complementary colours in which forms the widest possible contrast.
If we now mix the primary with the secondary colours we arrive at an extension of the colour circle. For example we can mix red and violet to make red-violet or yellow and orange to make yellow-orange. In order to enhance the range of colours and to obtain a variety from mixing them the Stockmar box of Opaque colours includes two tones of each basic colour: Lemon Yellow Golden Yellow Carmine Red Vermilion Ultramarine and Prussian Blue.
The Stockmar colours are delicately balanced with one another and when mixed will yield harmonious shades of colours. Like all Stockmar?s colour materials the Opaque colours have a unique luminosity. This is due to the fact that the concentration of the colour pigments in our Opaque colours are particularly intense. As a result the colours are richer and remain powerful even when heavily diluted. Stockmar Opaque colours are suitable for various different painting techniques; classic opaque painting (over painting) classic watercolour painting lazure painting or techniques based on a mixture of approaches.
