Artists say...

"I love the moistness of the paint, the clairity of hue (rich color of the pigment), the beautiful granulation of colors such as cerulean blue, ultramarine blue,manganese violet, cobalt green, cobalt violet and so on that help provide texture for my landscape painting. I'm sure that is because of the stone ground method"

"My reason for writing this is simply to say this, your Blockx half pans are a pure pleasure to use. They give up their colour with ease and lend themselves to beautiful even washes. Please accept my thanks for producing such worthwhile paints and please keep up the good work" G.M, UK

Blockx' watercolors still maintain secret splendour and are still composed of the finest ingredients, blended today in the same deliberate manner as did craftsmen of the past.

Rare, tough pigments are thoroughly crushed, then coated in arabic gum and honey.
They come to you, today, in 72 brilliant shades.

We do not and never have prepared transient or unstable shades. A classification by degree of stability would, therefore be out of place.
