Brand: Based in Schleswig-Holstein, the Stockmar company has been making quality products for school and art teaching for many decades, since 1922. The Stockmar logo combines the hexagonal form of a beehive with Goethe's color circle. Beeswax and color: at Stockmar that is what it all comes down to. As well as aesthetic principles and art teaching considerations, ecological and social aspects are also central to the development and manufacture of their products. Regular painting workshops for the employees involving a college art teacher, and profit-sharing by the staff (they are not a capital owned company) are things that are taken for granted in Stockmar's philosophy. Last but not least they are fully aware of the responsibility placed on them by their customers' confidence in the quality of their products.
12 colors assorted + colors + brush + mixing paletteWith this box of Opaque Colors, you have chosen a product offering the Artist's quality you have come to expect from Stockmar.
The artistically shaped box and classic metal design, contains 12 colour tabs. Each square can easily be taken out for quick replacements. The Stockmar mixing palette is not attached to the box, so you can put it down wherever is most convenient for your work - and of course it will be easier to clean than a painting box lid that is being used as a palette. In addition, your Stockmar box of Opaque colors contains a tube of Opaque white and a top quality Cat's Tongue Brush that holds its shape, made of Ponex synthetic hair and produced for Stockmar by the tradition-conscious German brush manufacturer Zahn.
Like all of our Stockmar paints and colors, we have relied on Goethe's color circle, but in an extended version.
The three basic or primary colors form a triangle; between them are the secondary colors, formed by mixing the adjacent primaries - green from yellow and blue, orange from yellow and red, and violet from red and blue. The colors opposite to one another are complementary colors in which forms the widest possible contrast.
If we now mix the primary with the secondary colors, we arrive at an extension of the colour circle. For example, we can mix red and violet to make red-violet, or yellow and orange to make yellow-orange. In order to enhance the range of colors, and to obtain a variety from mixing them, the Stockmar box of Opaque colours includes two tones of each basic color: Lemon Yellow, Golden Yellow, Carmine Red, Vermilion, Ultramarine, and Prussian Blue.
The Stockmar colors are delicately balanced with one another, and when mixed will yield harmonious shades of colors.
Like all Stockmar's color materials, these Opaque colours have a unique luminosity. This is due to the fact that the concentration of the color pigments in our Opaque colors is particularly intense. As a result the colors are richer, and remain powerful even when heavily diluted. Stockmar Opaque colours are suitable for various different painting techniques; classic opaque painting (over painting), classic watercolor painting, lazure painting or techniques based on a mixture of approaches.
