Grumbacher Academy has been the best-selling brand of watercolors in the United States for years. Their palette of 60 colors features traditional ingredients, time-tested formulas, careful manufacturing, and attention to quality.
Academy offers extravagant color at an affordable price. Grumbacher uses only the finest pigments, finely ground and evenly dispersed for producing the vibrant washes and subtle gradations that make watercolor so appealing.
Academy is of such quality that it is often used by professionals. Academy colors that have dried on the palette are easily resoluble with water. This cuts down on waste, and allows artists to make their own semi-moist colors for outdoor painting.
Soft Titanium White — Soft Titanium White is a permanent soft-bodied, opaque, non-yellowing Titanium White that is ground in poppy seed and sunflower oils, rather than linseed oil. These oils do not yellow with age, as does pure linseed oil. Soft Titanium White is also recommended for fluid wet-in-wet techniques.
Zinc White — Zinc White is a permanent, heavy-bodied, semi-opaque, cool white. It's designed especially for brilliant clear tints with all oil colors, and is excellent for glazing.
