HORADAM® watercolours

Genuine Cadmiums and Cadmium-free colours in two sets

Maybe you've noticed it before: In the HORADAM® AQUARELL range there are some colouristically very similar shades, which are however formulated differently and therefore have different properties. These are cadmium colours and their simulated, cadmium-free equivalents.

Why is this so and what makes the difference?
The genuine cadmium colours are all characterised by highest lightfastness, opacity, colour strength and brilliance due to their pigmentation. Their purity makes them ideal for brilliant mixtures. The colouristically similar, cadmium free imitated colours based on different, purely organic pigments and have different lightfastness and covering properties (transparent to semi-transparent).

You have the choice:
Schmincke now offers two HORADAM® AQUARELL cardboard sets, each containing sixpopular colours from the yellow-orange-red range in 5 ml tubes, one as pure cadmium colours, the other as asimulated cadmium-free alternative.
