This demo will introduce Holbein Artist Watercolour and Mediums. Holbein watercolours are made and imported from Japan, a country known for having the oldest professional watercolour traditions in the world. Holbein laboratories have produced an extensive palette of 108 highly concentrated colours which are known for their world class standards in lightfastness and providing brilliant characteristics over an extended period of time. Holbein Artist Watercolour is produced without ox-gall, animal by-products or other dispersing agents. Attendees will gain an understanding of how Holbein’s watercolours work on their own as well as how they perform using Holbein watercolour mediums to create interesting effects and enhance the properties of watercolours. The demo will also cover Holbein’s Gouache and innovative Acryla Gouache. Gouache is often referred to as opaque watercolour. Holbein’s Acryla Gouache combines the working properties of traditional gouache with the permanence of acrylics.
