With just a few drops of paint, any child can create a true masterpiece! Aquarellum Junior is based on a masking technique on vellum paper, allowing the watercolor paint to adhere only to selected areas. The design is gradually revealed with every brush stroke, and may be painted over repeatedly to obtain a perfect picture. Ideal for introducing children to the art of painting, understanding the mixing of colors and stimulating imagination and concentration. Includes four, ready-to-paint, 7.1 x 9.8" canvases and five washable, non-toxic watercolors; plus a palette for mixing custom colors, a paint pipette, a brush and a color guide. For ages 5 and up.
