Bringing Made in Japan & Designed in Japan to Your Doorstep

Collection: Holbein Watercolor Paints

Holbein watercolors have been a mainstay of the Japanese art scene for over 75 years, and are now steadily gaining popularity with artists in Europe, North America, and elsewhere. Japanese paints have always been famous for their brilliance, and Holbein is Japan’s most popular and well-regarded representative of that continuing tradition.

Holbein watercolor paints uniquely do not contain ox-gall, animal byproducts, or other dispersing agents. As a result, the paints are slower moving, and have more color density/intensity and greater brush control than watercolors made by other manufacturers. Holbein watercolors are also known for drying with almost no change in brightness and hue.

In addition to a full range of pigments used in European art, Holbein’s collection also includes many unique and brilliant colors originating in the Japanese tradition, and not found in any Western watercolor line.
