The Daler-Rowney Aquafine collection specialises in watercolours, as well as gouache (also known as opaque watercolours) their accompaniments such as suitable paper and similar paints, bringing art students and experienced artists a complete watercolour collection of harmonious products.

Aquafine Watercolour paints are made from a selection of modern high-quality pigments and are milled to perfection to offer optimal performance and control. Aquafine watercolours are rich, free-flowing transparent colours with excellent tinting strength and working properties that reliably produce beautiful, delicate washes. With a comprehensive palette of 48 colours, the Aquafine Watercolour collection boasts the largest collection of colours in its category.

A favourite in the Aquafine collection, the Daler-Rowney Aquafine Travel Sets offer artists a mixture of half-pan paints, a brush and a case, making them easy for art students and artists to complete paintings from wherever they please. Once the paint is used up, simply swap them for a new or different half pan colour to ensure your Aquafine travel set is always fully stocked.

Aquafine Watercolour Inks can be used straight from the dropper, brushed onto surfaces or used in airbrushing. The formulation is pigment-based and water-soluble, allowing it to be diluted to create subtle tones and remains vibrant over time. If you prefer block printing, the Aquafine Block Printing Inks are intermixable and water-soluble, offering artists an easy-to-use and fast-drying alternative to traditional oil-based printing inks.
