It was only in 1862 when Dr Fr. Schoenfeld successfully transferred the advantages of the moist-pasty watercolour in tubes to a recipe for colours in pans. This event was the birth of the LUKAS moist watercolour and the history of the company Dr Fr. Schoenfeld. In honour of this event, they have given their Finest Artists’ Watercolour the brand name Aquarell 1862. The fundamental development of the company founder represents the basis of this watercolour of world reputation still today.

Finest Artists’ quality with exclusively pure, high-quality pigments of the highest permanence and concentration. Approximately 99% of each pigment is finely grounded to 2 µ (2/1000 mm). Exceptional coverage and dilution value from gum arabic, carefully selected dextrins and special glucose derivatives. None of the pigments falls below a 6 to 7 on the international, standardised 8-step Blue Wool scale; a quality designed to ensure the long-lasting permanence of your valuable artwork.

Please note that artworks created with Lukas 1862 Watercolours should not be varnished; simply mount the sheet and frame it behind glass, out of direct sunlight. This will provide the best protection for your painting. A blend of cruelty-free wetting agents in Lukas Aquarell 1862 Watercolours provides them with a ‘permanently moist’ consistency. They can be easily rewetted if dry or lifted with water. This range of products is animal-friendly/vegan.
