The special edition HORADAM® AQUARELL Supergranulating Watercolours contains a total of 15 watercolours divided into 5 shades each in the series Deep Sea, Galaxy and Glacier. The special colours have 4 and 5 stars lightfastness and contain only pigments already known from the HORADAM® series. The opacity of the colours is mainly semi-opaque/semi-transparent.
Granulation is the property of pigments to combine in parts on the paper. By combining at least 2 granulating HORADAM® pigments, this effect is intensified to supergranulation. The colours are formulated with pigments from different colour ranges, so that the granulating effect results in additional colour changes. For example, the colour "Deep Sea Indigo“ (14 952) is a combination of a violet and a green pigment, while "Glacier Brown“ (14 965) contains a brown and a green pigment.
Please note: This new, natural structure of the colors varies depending on the substrate and the amount of water used.
The rougher a paper is the stronger the granulating effect.
