Schmincke HORADAM® AQUARELL, Sepia Brown, half pan
Sepia Brown, **** high lightfastness.
Originally gained from the cuttlefish. At that time not lightfast and storable. Replaced by lightfast pigment mixture. Often used for first layers.
Quality pigment in the highest possible concentration, perfect control of paint flow and reusable when dried on the palette.
Our range of Horadam® watercolours consists of 110 lightfast colours and is excellent for retouching work.
The pigments have been researched and tested to comply with the highest quality standard regarding stability, fineness, resolubility and lightfastness.
The lightfastness is an objective characteristic, which depends not only on the pigment itself, but also on the complete formula.
Therefore Schmincke does not only use the lightfastness given by the pigment itself but makes tests of the complete formula of each shade in the fast Xenontest and/or on the roof of the Schmincke factory for a prolonged period.
