New To Stock - Dr. Ph. Martin's Radiant Concentrated Watercolors


We are testing out 6 colors from Dr. Martin's Radiant Concentrated Watercolors. These inks are produced in an extremely concentrated form to achieve the greatest possible brilliance. Each liquid color comes in an iconic 0.5 oz (15 ml) glass bottle package with its own eyedropper.

Currently we are stocking Lemon Yellow, Scarlet, True Blue, Slate Blue, Tobacco Brown and Black. If we sense the demand is there, we hope to bring in the full line. We have them set up for you to give them a try in-store.


Dr. Ph. Martin's colors are primarily formulated for use in graphic arts work on paper surfaces intended for reproduction (e.g. cartooning, illustration, and other graphic arts), and are especially popular for airbrushing. Like all aniline dye base colors, they are fugitive when exposed to direct sunlight over time.

Here is a quick video for you to see these in action.
Come in and try out these watercolor inks today!
