ShinHan PWC Watercolours

ShinHan is based in Korea. They have a number of different art materials - oils, acrylics, poster colours, art makers etc - but I'll concentrate on their Extra Fine range of watercolours - the PWC range. They also have a ShinHan range with 30 colours and a student range with 24.

The PWC range originally consisted of 84 colours, with many being single pigment colours. The ones I have tried paint out very brightly and rewet beautifully. However they are a few pigments that don't rate as highly as I'd like on the lightfast scales - notice many of the reds are made with the very fugitive PR83.

I have only tried a small number from this range but will include all the original 84 colour swatches so you can see the other pigment information.

20 new colours have been added and I'll add in the extra colours soon.

There is a full colour chart available from their website as a PDF download.

  1. Cobalt Violet and Cerulean Blue from PWC have high chroma and are decently pigmented for the price, but they do require some pre-wetting. Still, those are some of my favourite cobalt paints!

  2. What is PWC's price in Australia? I can get about AUD $4-6 per tube here in Taiwan depending on the series. I own their Raw Sienna and Hooker's Green. Both rewet beautifully and have rich colours.

    1. I haven't ever found them in Australia! The samples have been sent to me from wonderful people from all over the world - especially Hong Kong in this case.

  3. Thanks once again!
    Is their permanent rose as deep red as it seems here? Does it compare to Da Vinci alizarin Quinacridone? Da Vinci is so Extremely expensive here -terrible shipping- and I am looking for a good permanent alizarin. Preferably single pigment. I find Daniel Smith perm. Alizarin too warm. Any suggestions?

    1. No it looks deeper in this image I am afraid. It is a traditional quin rose colour.
      I assume you are in Europe if American paints are expensive - consider Schmincke Permanent Carmine - like the Da Vinci one, that is a crimson made with PV19. Or splash out and buy the 37ml tube of Da Vinci Permanent Alizarin (Quinaqcridone) and it will last for ever!
