What you don't know CAN hurt you.

Toxicology - the branch of science concerned with the nature, effects, and detection of poisons. Wikipedia says "Toxicology is a discipline, overlapping with biology, chemistry, pharmacology, and medicine, that involves the study of the adverse effects of chemical substances on living organisms[1] and the practice of diagnosing and treating exposures to toxins and toxicants. The relationship between dose and its effects on the exposed organism is of high significance in toxicology. Factors that influence chemical toxicity include the dosage (and whether it is acute or chronic), route of exposure, species, age, sex, and environment. Toxicologists are experts on poisons and poisoning."

MaimeriBlu Professional Watercolor
90 single-pigment colors for the widest spectrum of color possibilities

Introducing the launch of the newly reformulated MaimeriBlu Professional Watercolors: a complete range of 90 single-pigment colors made with natural Kordofan Gum Arabic. This rare binder gives colors a slight sheen while glycerine reduces the hardness of this natural resin and prevents colors from cracking. The balance of Kordofan Gum Arabic combined with glycerine guarantees that the perfect amount of color will penetrate the surface and the purity of the ingredients ensures an even diffusion of color.

Using the highest quality of pigments ensures maximum lightfastness of the entire range, even when colors are heavily diluted. The purity of the pigments also guarantees extraordinary transparency: every color can provide extreme washes as well as intense, deep shades. Ultra-fine milling allows for an endless stream of graduated shading from full tones to the very lightest washes.

  •   • 90 beautiful single-pigment colors
  •   • Unlimited mixing capabilities
  •   • Maximum lightfastness of the entire range
  •   • Available in 12ml tubes, half pan travel sets and NEW deluxe gift sets
  •   • 5 watercolor mediums designed to work in perfect harmony with the range
