GOLDEN Introduces New QoR® mini and QoR Masking Fluid

The new QoR® mini from GOLDEN allows artists to experience uniquely vibrant colors on the move!  The QoR mini fits 12 half pan watercolors in a tin smaller than an index card and fits perfectly in a pocket or purse for urban sketching and plein air painting, making QoR watercolor more accessible to them than ever! 

The totally new solid half pans of color within the QoR mini re-wet beautifully and deliver the lively painting performance artists expect.  The deep, rich beautiful color of QoR with its exclusive modern Aquazol binder provides more pigment in every brushstroke, while retaining the best qualities of traditional watercolors.  Strength, versatility, and now mobility are part of the QoR story.  Additional benefits of the QoR mini include:

  • Stamped wells on tin lid, offering convenient mixing space
  • Innovative non-staining silicone insert with embossed letters next to each pan
  • Standard size removable/refillable half pans
  • Watercolor paper insert to paint out a color reference key

The 12 half pan colors included in the set are Cadmium Yellow Primrose, Nickel Azo Yellow, Transparent Pyrrole Orange, Pyrrole Red Medium, Quinacridone Magenta, Dioxazine Purple, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo Blue (Green Shade), Sap Green, Payne’s Gray, Transparent Brown Oxide, and Burnt Umber.

QoR Masking Fluid, a new product in the QoR Watercolor line is a latex based medium for masking areas of paper prior to applying color washes. With a consistency perfect for masking intricately detailed areas in watercolor paintings, it removes easily once dry, helping artists preserve white areas that would be too tiny or complex to paint around.​

The QoR mini has a list price of $99.99 and its dimensions are 3.25” x 4.4” x 0.63”.  It will be available in retail stores beginning mid-February.

The 2 oz. (59 ml) glass bottles of QoR Masking Fluid can be found alongside the other QoR Mediums in store display cabinets.  Masking Fluid has a list price of $10.99 and will be available March 12.
