Artists Receive FREE QoR® Cobalt Blue, Expanding their Palette and Encouraging Experimentation

March 15, 2016

GOLDEN is giving watercolor artists an opportunity to expand their color palette with its unique Spring 2016 Free Color Promotion highlighting QoR Watercolors. With the purchase of 3 tubes of QoR, artists will receive an 11 ml tube of QoR Cobalt Blue FREE!  This is a great opportunity to give QoR Watercolor a try if they’ve never experimented with them before! 

The free tube of QoR Cobalt Blue (Series 4) will be packaged with a flyer and a QoR Sample card, which they can share with a friend.  This package represents a great value and not only brings artists savings, but it allows them to try new color combinations, inspiring exploration and expansion of their ideas! 

QoR Watercolor retains the best qualities of traditional watercolors while expanding the range and versatility of each color. QoR's exclusive binder provides more pigment in every brushstroke, offering a strength, range and versatility unmatched in the history of watercolors.

The unique QoR formulation accentuates the luminosity and brilliance of pigments even after drying. It provides the subtlety, transparency and flow of a great watercolor, with colors that have as much vibrancy as the best acrylic or oil paint. QoR offers several unique qualities:

·         Vibrant, intense colors that stay brilliant even after they dry

·         Exceptionally smooth transitions, flow and liveliness on paper

·         Excellent resolubility in water and glazing qualities

·         Vivid depth of color with each brushstroke

·         Greater resistance to cracking and flaking

·         More density of color than traditional watercolors

·         Exclusive Aquazol® binder used in conservation

All QoR retailers are invited to participate in the program at no cost to them, so artists will have plenty of access to the materials during the promotion, which begins March 14.
