So what came in the box?!

Holbein Artist's Watercolor - Jaune #2 [STAFF FAVORITE]

Retail Value: $9.65
This extra-fine, European style transparent watercolor, known for its purity, permanence and brilliance, preserves the brush handling qualities inherent in Japanese watercolor techniques. Because it contains no oxgall, animal by products or other dispersing agents, Holbein watercolor moves slowly, allowing for greater color density and brush control. We picked a flesh color to extend your palette to include portaits and sunsets.

4 x Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolor

Retail Value: $4.99 each
We included four of our favorite reasonably priced watercolors to give you a wide range of tones. Cotman watercolor stands up to the more expensive brands in terms of quality by replacing the mineral pigments with sophisticated synthetic pigments. We chose a landscape palette for your art this month.

Kuretake Zig H20 brush - long detailer

Retail Value: $7.50 each
This water brush is great for it’s ability to add fine details to your watercolor painting. Since it stores water in its long barrel design you can precisely control the amount of water in the brush. Flow control makes a traditionally hard to handle medium much easier.

Kuretake Zig Hikkei Fude Pen

Retail Value: $2.75
This pen has a hard brush fine tip that is ideal for outlining. It contains water-based black pigment ink, so be sure to use it after laying down your watercolors. If you’d like to darken up your watercolors, the ink will blend out with water to achieve that effect.

Ampersand Aquabord 3x8” [EXCLUSIVE]

Retail Value: $4.00
Simply put, we love this watercolor surface. It allows proper time for color mixing before it sets in and becomes permanent. We worked with Ampersand to develop this custom size only available in this box.

Total retail value of this box: $43.86

Cost of our Premium Box: $35
