Watercolor Paints

Create waves of color with our wide selection of watercolor paint. Sold as watercolor paint tubes or pans, watercolors can be used on paper and other absorbent surfaces that have been primed to accept waterbased paint.
Watercolor Paint Tubes contain a full pigment load suspended in a watersoluble binder, generally natural gum arabic. Use them on paper and other absorbent surfaces that have been primed to accept waterbased paint.
Watercolor Pans, available in professional and student grades, offer pigment and binder in a dry form. Apply water with a brush to moisten the pan and lift pigment. Use a palette with indentations to mix colors. Watercolor pans are ideal for field or outdoor painting and small-scale work.
Student Watercolors have working characteristics similar to professional watercolors but with lower concentrations of pigment and a smaller range of colors. More expensive pigments are generally replicated by hues.
Kids' and Classroom Watercolor Pans contain inexpensive pigments and dyes suspended in a synthetic binder. Washable formulas feature colors that are chosen to be non-staining, easily washable, and suitable for use by young children with proper supervision. They're an excellent choice for teaching beginning artists painting techniques and basic color theory.
