These professional watercolours in half pans are produced using traditional formulas.  They are made almost entirely by hand using the purest pigments, gum arabic and Polish acacia honey. Almost the entire manufacturing process is done by hand, to ensure the highest quality and purity of the traditional recipe. These paints use highly concentrated pigments and are ground finely to ensure the brightest color even when diluted with large amounts of water.  These paints have the highest level of lightfastness and remain consistently brilliant and transparent. For these reasons, Renesans watercolours are a popular choice of artists in Poland and are gaining worldwide recognition and respect. The range consists of 54 colours.

Kryjaca Opaque Polkryjaca Semi-opaque Poltransparentne Semi-transparent Transparentny Transparent


This describes the durability of a colour in daylight. A number of influencing factors play a role too, like intensity of sunlight, temperature, moisture, oxygen or gas content of the air.
