Watercolor Paints & Pigments

Introduction

I have tried or used many different watercolor brands and started to keep notes about their pigments and other attributes. This page is an interactive version of that list. Some brands are almost complete (like Schmincke Horadam), some only consist of one or two paints from the range.

Still, those cross-references could be helpful as a starting point.

I've included here different water-based artist paints: watercolors, gouaches, poster paints, and even acrylic gouaches (which is an odd one out).

Manufacturers often change their ranges, adding or removing paints, changing recipes. When a full paint range changes, I keep the 'old' range separately. If only a single paint's recepie changes, I simply keep both versions in the list for comparison.
