Shopping Cart Info

Peerless Water Colors have been around since 1865.  The formula initially created by Charles F. Nicholson has never changed after all these years.  It has been patented since 1902 and the current manufacturer is only the fourth person/company to obtain this formula. 


Peerless Transparent Water Colors-Complete Edition~ I first came across these about 10 years ago or so at a rubber stamp convention and was blown away.  This is a book of water colors- perfect for the person who likes to take their art with them- even on a plane.  The water colors are put up on films or paper leaflets so the book is filled with separate sheets of these films, different colors and each separated by a plain sheet of paper.  To use- cut small pieces from the color film for your work- I would start out with a very small piece.  Full directions are included for use.  Feel free to give these as a gift for children too.    These can also be used to color projector slides- and photographs. 
They are transparent and their self blending qualities have gained for them a world-wode fame.  This film leaflet is original with Peerless and has been pateneted since 1902. 
They are easy to use and almost any beginner can obtain good results with them after 1 or 2 trials.  They flow smoothly and evenly over any paper surface and combined will form an almost unlimited number of shades and tints.  They require not care except to keep them from DAMPNESS.
This set comes with 15 color sheets measuring 2.5" x 6.5"-colors  shown below- see chart- and the intensity is controlled by adding more or less water.  Complete edition colors are:  brilliant yellow, deep yellow, orange yellow, flesh tint, geranium pink, royal crimson, mahogany brown, sepia brown, light green, dark green, sky blue, deep blue, wisteria violet and pearl grey.

Corrines Sample

This sample was painted using 3 colors of the Peerless Water Colors with a water brush on Claudine Helmuth ATC sized untreated canvas.  The hummingbird was painted using Stickles Glitter Glue.


Aqua-Flow Water Brush~ This is a great tool to use with your Pearl Ex Watercolor CD- portable and simple.  Just fill the reservoir with water and you are ready to use your paints.  When you want to change colors, simply roll on a paper towel to remove the excess color.  How simple is that!  These brushes are made by Royal Langnickel who has been making quality artists brushes for many years.  Use them with your Twinkling H2O's, watercolors,  watercolor crayons and watercolor pencils.  You get a package of 3 with 3 sizes, small, medium and large.
