High quality pigments of unsurpassed light-fastness and brilliance
Pigments dissolve completely when brushed with water
Smooth colour stroke
Break-resistant due to special bonding process
Depending on the paper being used, the pigments can be completely dissolved, and will then behave in the same way as classic watercolour paints. The paint becomes permanent when dry, enabling other layers of colour to be superimposed without causing it to dissolve again.
