Art Spectrum Watercolours

Art Spectrum Watercolours


In accordance with proven traditional methods of production, all Art Spectrum Artists Watercolours are carefully stone milled to enhance the individual brilliance of each carefully selected pigment, and to maximize its handling qualities. 

Art Spectrum watercolours have the distinct advantage of being composed only of lightfast pigments - for instance, Alizarin Crimson is not offered in our range because it is known to be fugitive. We have replaced this colour with a lightfast Permanent Crimson. 

Art Spectrum watercolours have very high pigment content which gives stronger tints and clean mixes, resulting in outstanding value for money. 





Art Spectrum Watercolour Sets 

Sets of assorted watercolours provide a range of the most useful and popular colours for artists, whether beginners or advanced. The Landscape set introduces the unique Australian landscape watercolours, plus useful standard colours.

Key to Label Information
 
Products bearing the AP seal of ACMI are certified in a program of toxicological evaluation to contain no materials in sufficient quantities to be toxic or injurious to humans or cause chronic health problems. 


Lightfastness 
American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) ratings, conforming to standard D4236, has been used wherever possible. ASTMI and II are both regarded as permanent for artists use. Where ASTM has not tested a pigment, the internationally recognized Blue Wool Scale (BWS) ratings are used. BWS 7 & 8 are regarded as extremely permanent, BWS 6 is regarded as permanent. 


Permanence 
This indicates colours that have been tested for lightfastness in graded washes from full strength to pale dilutions, taking into account the quality of the binder and any chemical interaction between pigments and their environment. 


Permanence rating: 
Excellent **** 
Very good *** 


Products bearing the CL Health label (ACMI) are certified to be properly labeled in a program of toxicological evaluation by a medical expert.
