Ideal for spread techniques and color overlapping, this professional-grade watercolor paint comes in different sets and offers exceptional clarity and transparency along with superior lightfastness.
The extreme cold weather and / or traveling by air during shipping may cause one or more of the tubes to burst. I check every package prior to shipping to ensure that all of the tubes are in perfect condition, but I cannot be held responsible for any weather or travel-related damage... this is normal for ALL paints that are shipped in cold weather or by air and all paints are sold with the expectation that this is a risk for this, especially during Winter.
PWC, Extra Fine Watercolor from ShinHan Art is crafted with the highest quality pigments and the finest high-grade gum arabic. To enhance the clarity and depth of color, single-pigments have been used whenever possible and the usage of mixed pigments has been limited. By using single pigments, watercolors are less prone to fading and the consistency of colors is improved.
I love the bright colors in the ShinHan line of products. Although these are true professional quality watercolors with the signature transparency of this medium, you still get those saturated tones that I just love. This paint blends very well - it's great for wet in wet and wet on dry techniques and works beautifully for details. You can see in my samples here where I've used PWC Extra Fine Watercolor exclusively (or with the addition of white gouache for the daisies) that you can get a huge range of transparency and opacity with vibrant and saturated colors.
Note that at first, you may just get a clear-ish medium coming out of the tubes. Every brand of tubed watercolor paint I've ever used, from ShinHan to Daniel Smith to Schminke, can have some settling and separation of the pigments and mediums between production and use by the end consumer. I find that if you massage the tubes a bit - with the caps on, you can work the mediums and pigments back together. If you do this prior to putting the paint into pans, you may find that you need to do it again when it's time to refill. This is normal and I don't do returns or refunds for this characteristic of the paint.
