GOLDEN Introduces New QoR® 24 Watercolor Set

New Product

The new QoR® 24 Set from GOLDEN allows artists to experience a wide range of colors in one convenient set. Packaged in a versatile palette tin, this collection is comprised of a full spectrum of vivid colors, making it appealing to any watercolorist, whether they are a student, teacher or professional who wants to experiment with a modern watercolor.

QoR’s exclusive Aquazol® binder offers a strength, range and versatility unmatched in the history of watercolor. It is clearer and cleaner, bringing out the brilliance and luminosity of pigments even after they’ve dried, while retaining all the best qualities of traditional watercolors.  QoR provides the subtlety, transparency and flow of a great watercolor, with colors that have as much vibrancy and fire as the best acrylic or oil paint.

The twenty-four 5 ml tubes included in the set are Cadmium Yellow Primrose, Nickel Azo Yellow, Quinacridone Gold, Diarylide Yellow, Transparent Pyrrole Orange, Cadmium Red Medium, Permanent Scarlet, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Quinacridone Magenta, Dioxazine Purple, Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue Chromium, Phthalo Blue (GS), Cobalt Teal, Viridian Green, Sap Green, Green Gold, Raw Sienna (Natural), Burnt Sienna (Natural), Raw Umber (Natural), Van Dyke Brown, Paynes Gray, Neutral Tint and Titanium White.

Within the QoR product line, artists can choose from 83 high-intensity colors, including three Iridescent colors. The concept of QoR Watercolors does not end with colors. Like every product that comes from GOLDEN, the idea of equipping artists to realize their creative vision inspires every product. Three QoR Mediums help extend and enhance the creative range and control of watercolors while three QoR Grounds bring a new wave of expression to watercolors. 

Watercolor Ground quickly transforms nearly any surface into an absorbent bright white painting surface similar to hot press papers, while Cold Press Ground and Light Dimensional Ground transform surfaces with texture ranging from toothy cold press style surfaces to lustrous modeled surfaces that artists design.

The QoR 24 Sets will begin shipping to your local art supply retailer at the end of March, so be on the lookout for them soon!  Learn more about QoR Watercolor by visiting www.QoRcolors.com.  Within the site are several short videos detailing QoR Grounds and various applications using these materials, so be sure to take a look at those as well!
