Professional Watercolors, 120 colors
Most Rembrandt watercolour tones are very transparent because of the use
of pure Gum Arabic and the pigments choosen.
A few colors are slightly less transparent because of the specific pigment used,
such as cadmium colors.
Nevertheless, since water colours are usually heavy diluted,
this will be scarcely visible. These less transparent colors
are marked with sign ST (Semi-Transparent) -
white small rectangle in cross on the original wrapping. Designations:
