Gwartzman's is proud to be the only retailer and distributor in Canada of Roman Szmal watercolours from Poland.
Aquarius is a range of artist quality watercolours made by Roman Szmal. 117 out of 140 colours are single pigment paints which ensures clean mixing and lets artists easily create their own colour palettes.
Colours are made in small batches that allows them to be carefully checked. Every batch is tested for performance qualities: vibrancy, flowing abilities, viscosity, colour value, transparency, granulation, undertone, tinting strength, clarity and particle size. For each colour, Roman Szmal select the perfect grind to match the particle size.
Each colour is made with high-quality gum arabic and glycerin, linden honey, distilled water and pure pigments. Every pan is hand filled and labelled with watercolour paper.
