Watercolour Paint

Also named aquarelle (from French), watercolor paint is made from pigments where a water solution (with gum arabic) is used as a binder. But the name watercolor also refers to the color of the final artwork which is usually transparent. Because of this transparency, the quality of the paper (that will be visible through the paint) used is of extra importance. Watercolor paint is assumed to first have been used by the Egyptians, on papyrus. After that, this technique was found in Chinese work and only later during the times of the Renaissance, the first water-colour works were found in Europe.
