With this box of Opaque Colours, you have
chosen a product offering the Artist's quality you have come to expect
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 Cat's 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 Goethe's 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, these Opaque colours have a unique
luminosity. This is due to the fact that the concentration of the
colour pigments in our Opaque colours is 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
