All AQUA DROP colours are compatible with all watercolours such as HORADAM® watercolours

The unique Opaque White for AQUA DROP can be used as a pure opaque white or mixed with AQUA DROP colours for lightening colours.

Note on paper or substrate:


AQUA DROP is a watercolour and therefore suitable for all watercolour papers and pre-primed canvas. For an even application with the AQUA DROP LINER we recommend smooth, hot-pressed papers. Basically applies: The purer the colour are applied and the more absorbent the substrate is, the stronger the pigments are anchored in the substrate. We recommend individual pre-tests.

The AQUA DROP LINER with brush tip for filling can be used for various painting and writing techniques (for all AQUA DROP colours except Opaque White or colours mixed with Opaque White). Shake before use!
