Holbein Artists' Watercolors
A Japanese brand, Holbein has a reputation for quality, and their Artists’ Watercolors live up to this standing. Unlike most watercolor paints, Holbein watercolors do not use any dispersants to smooth the paint giving the paints a unique, slow-moving texture allowing artists a high level of brush control and detail work. The tubes may not have the same lightfast information other brands offer, but the pigments hold up well and offer great color. The paint comes in either 5 or 15 milliliter tubes at a fairly good price for watercolor paints.
