Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colours (formerly known as Artists' Water Colours) have maintained an excellent reputation since the introduction of moist watercolours in the 1830s. These are truly a joy to paint with and are an artist-quality paint that is a favourite amongst watercolourists.
Since 1832, Winsor & Newton has been at the forefront of colour innovation, and that history continues today with the launch of eight Cadmium-Free Professional Water Colours. Formulated by chemists and approved by artists, these new paints deliver the cadmium colour strength, vibrancy, transparency and lightfastness you expect, but without the cadmium.
Dont confuse these with hue colours. Cadmium hues already exist, using a blend of pigments to create something resembling an original Cadmium colour. Winsor & Newton Cadmium-Free water colours are something very different. Each one identically matches the colour of genuine Cadmium and behaves in the same way.
The new Cadmium-Free water colours have been independently tested and certified as safe to use in the studio and in the classroom. This evaluation was carried out by the Art and Creative Materials Institute (ACMI), the international association of art, craft and creative material manufacturers, which seeks to promote safety through its certification program.
Professional Water Colours offer bright, vibrant colours with unrivalled performance. Using only the purest pigments, these paints are known for their brilliance, permanence, and strength of colour.
The majority of the colours in this range are classed as "permanent for artists' use", rated AA or A for permanence to ensure that the colours used today will appear the same for generations to come.
