Professional Handmade Watercolour
Also Known As: Ultramarine Blue, French Ultramarine (Red Shade)
A rich transparent blue. Created by French chemist Guimet in 1828 as a synthetic but chemically identical alternative to the expensive pigment derived from Lapis Lazuli.
Made over a period of 2 days our Ultramarine Blue is formulated using only a single pigment with the highest percentage possible and blended into our new distilled water gum base mix, we then run it over our traditional 3 roll mill until the pigment is fully dispersed and the texture buttery soft, after months of testing our unique formula allows us to create the following:
* Unparalleled flow of colour to white on paper
* Outstanding dissolvability of pigment when mixed with water
* Extremely vibrant highly pigmented colours
Each batch is throughly checked against previous batches to ensure colour, vibrancy & viscosity are exactly the same
Our watercolours are perfect for artists of all experience from beginners to advanced who value high quality materials
