Pronounced Colour Intensity and Highest Transparency distinguish LUKAS Aquarell 1862. This we achieve by using selected pigments of the best quality in the highest possible concentration.
The extraordinary Brilliance and the Outstanding Mixing Ability of the colours meet the requirements of the most demanding professional artist. The colours consist of one pigment only, wherever possible.
Highest possible Lightfastness is achieved with the finest artists’ watercolour from SCHOENFELD. The pigments we use for production are obtained from top quality raw materials: none of our colour shades has a lower lightfastness rating than 6 to 7 on the international, standardised 8 steps blue wool scale.
LUKAS finest artists’ watercolour is easy to lift because of its permanently moist consistency. This is achieved through special wetting agents and a gentle production manner which avoids strong heating of the colour. This makes it possible to lift colour easily without the painter having to „scrub“ the pan or half pan with the brush. Not only does this spare expensive specialist watercolour brushes, but also it allows colour once dried up to be re-dissolved easily. In contrast to this, a pigment of LUKAS Aquarell 1862 with its wetting agents is soaked up by the water, this way the excellent colour characteristics can be guaranteed.
The excellent gradient Characteristics make LUKAS Aquarell 1862 a premium product. Every recipe is tailored to the individual colour shade and the production process is extremely gentle to the raw materials. Thus our watercolour is still pressed into the pans by hand. To ensure the highest quality of the product, we deliberately avoid heating the colours, a procedure which is conventionally used by other manufacturers during the production process. As a result of this, LUKAS water colours enable the artist to achieve even and easily controllable gradients and an application of colour without clouds or veins.
