These are the first six basic colors of STOCKMAR’s waterpaint line.
Stockmar Watercolor Paints make their mark with their excellent scumbling properties, natural transparency and lightfastness. The color range follows the extended version of Goethe's Theory of Colors. Each tone has been adjusted so that it can be mixed well with the others. Harmonious intermediate gradations and boundary-less color blending are also possible when using the wet-on-wet technique.
Stockmar Watercolor Paints have been tried and tested in art education, at school and kindergarten. These non toxic paints are long-lasting and remain completely water soluble when dry. They are excellent paints for children AND their grownups!
Note: These six colors (whether purchased individually or as a set) are also the six Waldorf Preferred Colors Waldorf students will use in 2nd grade and beyond.

USAGE AND CARE OF YOUR PAINTS
Stockmar paints are a worthwhile investment in quality art supplies for you and your children, so you want to make them last as long as possible. Here are our suggestions on how to make that happen based on our own years of use.
Dilution Ratio for Painting
We always start with a dilution ratio of 1 part paint concentrate to 9-10 parts water. But that’s the dilution we tend to like. Some people may prefer less or more but if you are new to stockmar, it’s a great starting place.
Preventing or Mixing Paint if it Separates or Thickens
With age or lack of use, the pigment concentrate will thicken. This is normal. It’s still usable! We’ve found that storing your paints in a cool location or even a refrigerator helps prevent or slow this process. We also use a clean wooden stick, like a skewer, to stir the concentrate as it will usually separate upon thickening too. Scrape as much concentrate off your skewer back into your paint bottle! It’s too valuable to waste.
