Artists Receive FREE QoR® Watercolor Sample Set, Expanding their Palette and Encouraging Experimentation

March 30, 2017

GOLDEN is giving watercolor artists an opportunity to expand their color palette with its unique Spring 2017 Free Sample Set Color Promotion highlighting QoR Watercolors. With the purchase of any two 11 ml tubes of QoR, artists will receive a Sample Set of three 5 ml tubes of QoR for FREE!  This is a great opportunity to give QoR Watercolor a try if they’ve never experimented with them before! 

The free Sample Set contains Nickel Azo Yellow, Quinacridone Magenta, and Ultramarine Blue.  This package represents a great value, bringing artists savings and allowing them to try new color combinations, inspiring exploration and expansion of ideas and creativity! 

QoR Watercolor retains the best qualities of traditional watercolors while expanding the range and versatility of each color. QoR's patented Aquazol® 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
  • Patented 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 mid-March.
