PLEASE NOTE: Opaque colour boxes will be back in stock in mid-February. Order now and they’ll be sent In a few weeks.
The Stockmar Opaque Colour Box is an artistically shaped box and classic metal design, contains 12 replaceable paint pucks. Each puck can easily be taken out for quick replacements or for cleaning up your box to make it look like new again.
We are happy to order you specific replacements for you if you have a purple-loving painter like I do.
The Stockmar mixing palette is not attached to the box, so you can put it down wherever is most convenient for your work - and of course it will be easier to clean than a painting box lid that is being used as a palette.
In addition, your Stockmar box of Opaque colours contains a tube of Opaque white and a top quality Cat's Tongue Brush that holds its shape, made of Ponex synthetic hair and produced for Stockmar by the tradition-conscious German brush manufacturer Zahn.
Like all of our Stockmar paints and colours, we have relied on Goethe's colour circle, but in an extended version.
The Stockmar colours are delicately balanced with one another, and when mixed will yield harmonious shades of colours.
Like all Stockmar's colour materials, these Opaque colours have a unique luminosity. This is due to the fact that the concentration of the colour pigments in our Opaque colours is particularly intense. As a result the colours are richer, and remain powerful even when heavily diluted.
Stockmar Opaque colours are suitable for various different painting techniques; classic opaque painting (over painting), classic watercolour painting, lazure painting or techniques based on a mixture of approaches.
Each colour box insludes 12 opaque paints, 1 tub of white paint, a mixing palette and a paint brush.
Now made in Taiwan*
*PLEASE NOTE: The Opaque Colour Box had been manufactured at Italy up until COVID but because of the devastating effects Italy has suffered, the factory where they were made won't be able to supply anything for Stockmar anymore. Luckily, a new manufacturer has been found - a family-run, reliable factory in Taiwan has agreed to take over the job. The company has had a reltationship with Stockmar for years and guarantees fair wages and safe working conditions. Stockmar is happy to be able to assist Taiwan in the rebuilding of their economy, that has been greatly effected by the global pandemic.
