In choosing this box of Opaque Gouache Colours you have chosen a product offering the Artist's quality you have come to expect from Stockmar. The artistically shaped box and classic metal design contains 12 colour tabs.The Stockmar mixing palette is not attached to the box making it easy to clean and conveniently portable. In addition your Stockmar box of Opaque colours contains a tube of Opaque white and a top quality Cat's Tongue Brush that holds its shape made of Ponex synthetic hair and produced for Stockmar by the tradition-conscious German brush manufacturer Zahn. Like all the Stockmar paints and colours not only is Goethe's basic colour circle used but it is an extended version. The three basic or primary colours form a triangle; between them are the secondary colours formed by mixing the adjacent primaries, green from yellow and blue orange from yellow and red and violet from red and blue.
The Stockmar colours are delicately balanced with one another and when mixed will yield harmonious shades of colours. Like all Stockmar's colour materials these Opaque colours have a unique luminosity. This is due to the fact that the concentration of the colour pigments in these Opaque colours is particularly intense. As a result the colours are richer and remain powerful even when heavily diluted. Stockmar Opaque colours are suitable for various different painting techniques; classic opaque painting (over painting) classic watercolour painting, and other watercolour techniques.
