L'Aquarelle Sennelier has been produced in the same way for more than a century using the best pigments and top quality Gum Arabic as a bonding agent. This mix of natural ingredients produces colours which have a smooth, bright texture and offer lively, colourful shades. The Gum Arabic and honey combination offers incomparable quality of application, producing superb washes.
