Knowledge of using watercolour pans
The watercolour sets we stock are watercolour pans. They are easy to carry around and store because the watercolour paints are dry in each pan. Before using, you need to use water brushes to dip and dilute them. The water-based pigment paint can be used solely as gouache or create transparency with proper dilution.

Metallic watercolours for creating shimmering effects
The watercolour paints are filled with metallic pigment that can be mixed with water to create shimmering effects. Ideal for brush lettering, illustration and card making on dark paper. We stock the Finetec Coliro watercolours that are well-known for their metallic pan watercolours. The secret of their watercolours is the use of mica, a natural mineral which gives the paint a lustrous sheen.
