Stockmar Watercolour Paints have been tried and tested in art education, in Waldorf schools and Waldorf kindergartens. These non-toxic paints are long-lasting and remain completely water soluble when dry. Colours included in the set are: carmine, vermillion, golden yellow, lemon yellow, ultramarine blue and Prussian blue.
Stockmar Watercolours have a pasty consistency and have to be mixed with water before using. With a paintbrush, put a dab of paint into a small dish and add drops of water with a second paintbrush, then mix together. Repeat this procedure until you have the desired colour tone and the paint has an ink-like consistency.
If you want the paint to be brilliant, use less water; if you want the paint to shimmer slightly, add more water. Itís best to paint a sample on a piece of normal paper. Then you will discover that you need more paint for an intensive shade of yellow than you do for a similar shade of blue or red. While painting, change the water frequently.
Or mix Stockmar watercolours in a small jar of water with a lid and have on hand for many painters or many paintings. Try our Cherry Wood Paint Jar Holder with 3 Jars.
