Schmincke has been developing and manufacturing its Horadam line of watercolours since 1881. Today the Horadam line includes 140 colours, 72 of them formulated with a single pigment. Each colour has its own individually optimised formula.

Schmincke has a reputation for using only the highest-quality natural gums, water-soluble resins, and pigments which is reflected in this superior blend of vibrant watercolours.

Ivory black: This is a very deep black. Formerly made from carbonated ivory, but nowadays produced by dry destillation of degreassed bones. A small amount of calciumphosphate adds the slightly bluish gey tone.
