Watercolours Intense Water in aluminium tubes are exceptional, high-quality watercolours, very efficient due to the vitality and purity of the shades. Mixing smooth, intense colours gives you the possibility to obtain subtle shades. The honey used in the production is not only a preservative, it provides incomparable smoothness of paint. We have updated the watercolours formula of the Intense Water line, increasing also the contents of honey, to reflect the longevity of colours, their brightness, and luminosity. In addition, one of the main binders of Intense water paint is the excellent quality of gum Arabic from the Kordofan – region constituting the central and southern area of Sudan. Quality without compromise. The highest standards of artistic pigments ensure the highest lightfastness.
