Yarka St. Petersburg Watercolors are rooted in a long, rich history of fine painting. These watercolors are carefully crafted with traditional materials and techniques. Each pigment is Russian-made in a factory that has been producing quality colors for over a century. Unlike other watercolors, which are made with a dry, compressed extrusion process, St. Petersburg Watercolors are liquid poured. This highly regarded process preserves the integrity of each pigment and results in semi-moist pans. They are sure to bring your color palette to new heights!
