Stockmar watercolors are ideal for transparent wet-in-wet painting. They are produced from gum Arabic and the finest light-resistant colour pigments, have a very high yield-value and remain completely water-soluble when dry. The colour tones have been chosen so that they can be mixed to yield all intermediate shades without losing their brilliance and intensity. Mixed with white, the watercolours can be used for non-transparent painting. The selection of Stockmar watercolours is based on the natural graduation of the twelve-part color-circle, in accordance with Goethe's theory of colours.
Colours include carmine red, vermilion red, lemon yellow, gold yellow, ultramarine and Prussian blue.
