Water Colour Paints

Water colour paints are a pigment, suspended in a binder, generally natural gum arabic. Conventional watercolours are sold in moist form, in a tube, and are thinned and mixed on a dish or palette. Use them on paper and other absorbent surfaces that have been primed to accept water-based paint.

Maimeri Blu Water Colour

Maimeri was founded in 1923 by noted Italian impressionist painter, Gianni Maimeri, who was searching to satisfy his own burning desire for artistic excellence in paint.

The result of his passion is a line of highly concentrated, light fast water colours with performance unlike most of their mass-produced counterparts. Every colour is made with the best binder available - a gum-arabic from Kordofan, in the Sudan region. The result is an almost completely clear and elastic medium, totally soluble in water, yielding the purest and most brilliant tones.
