Product Description

In late 2007 Holbein color laboratories of Osaka Japan introduced a new and innovative primary mixing set. Holbein Gouache, already well known for its smooth characteristics, high permanency and lack of muddying & graying, now offers 5 new primary colors available in a primary mixing set.
The Holbein Primary Colors, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, White and Black offer excellent handling qualities, very high chroma and exceptional lightfastness. There is no other set available today that is as well made.
Holbein Primary Cyan, Magenta and Yellow have superlative hues and high chroma. As the density and handling characteristics is well balanced, mixing two of these colors equally will produce secondary colors easily. Mixing these three colors equally will produce black and dark grey. Producing a comprehensive grey scale has never been easier.
In addition to the three Primary Colors, Magenta, Cyan and Yellow, Holbein has created a Primary Black and a Primary White. These two colors have been produced because, unlike Ivory Black and Permanent White, they offer identical, specific gravity as the other three Primary Colors. The result is a set that will produce identical colors in volume and weight when mixed together.
