KOH-I-NOOR Wax Aquarell Water-Soluble Color Pencil Set x 12KOH-I-NOOR 8282012003KS
Wax Aquarell fine wax pastels were introduced to the market by the company KOH-I-NOOR HARDTMUTH in 2004. Wax emulsification allows a change of the characteristic abilities of fine wax pastels as their water resistance changes to perfect solubility. The key components of wax pastels are rich, top quality and perfectly dispersed pigments, carefully selected and purchased from renowned manufacturers around the world. Their light permanency and dosed concentration influence the final result and durability of the artwork. Therefore, for this reason a high concentration of colour pigment dosing has been prescribed for these products in the entire colour range. Another important component is white clay, usually bleached kaolin of the highest purity and fineness. It gives our wax pastels, along with the addition of binders and other additives, an unsurpassable ability to make a unique stroke on the paper or other medium. The application of a thicker layer and overlapping of tones enables mutual mixing and consequently the creation of new colour tones, similarly to oil and tempera colours. Scratching technique comes as an option as well. The aquarelle technique can be achieved even with a few drops of water distributed by a fine brush. The options or, rather techniques of application are many. You can dilute the strokes on the paper, chips (prepared by a knife or sharpener) or strip the lead of the pastel with a wet brush and paint as with watercolors. Made in Czech Republic.
