Nila Colori prepares its own handcrafted extrafine watercolors using high quality raw materials, starting from pigments. Plant and animal based pigments are directly produced by us, while the mineral ones are mostly natural earths.
We developed a mixture of water soluble gums as a binder to guarantee the best transparency and elasticity of the color. The main within these gums is Kordofan gum arabic, which is characterized by its high purity. We add vegetable glycerin as a moistening agent to ease the solution of the color when it is picked up with a wet paint brush.
This handcrafted product is therefore completely constituted by natural materials and is suitable for use by the artists who share our philosophy, as well as by the children who want to experience with colors.
