The name “White Nights” comes from St. Petersburg, where summer nights are long and the sky is never dark.  “White Nights” is a famous brand of professional watercolour paints.  Crafty Studio Art Supplies are the first to bring White Nights watercolour paints to Ireland!

“White Nights” are extra fine watercolour paints, manufactured using the highest grade of the finest pigment particles plus gum arabic.

Unlike pan watercolours made with the extrusion process, “White Nights” Watercolours are poured—a process preserving the integrity of each pigment and resulting in semi-moist cakes that respond instantly to a wet brush.

“White Nights” full pans are 2.5ml and compare favourably in price with other professional watercolour paint brands.  This 2.5ml range will typically outprice the 1.5ml (half-pan) ranges of other professional brands – yet the quality is on a par with them.

Key features:

  • Pigment load 15-50% (very high for watercolours)
  • 3/4 single pigment colours
  • Majority of colours have medium or high light-fastness
  • Ideal for both wet and dry techniques
  • Incredibly rich and strong colours
  • Paint looks transparent – even after 7 layers
  • Finely dispersed
  • Includes gum arabic
  • Liquid poured

A comprehensive colour chart is available here that details the colours available in this set.

Innovative developments and sophisticated technologies aimed at producing the highest quality artistic materials have made White Nights watercolour paints a hallmark of the company both in Russia and abroad.  The paints are made from finely ground pigments and are bound by gum arabic.  The high concentration of pigment ensures an extremely intense colour tone in the paint.  Depth is maintained even when diluted by a large quantity of water.  The pure colors mean that you can mix the paints to obtain a rich range of hues.  Most of the paints are highly light-resistant, ensuring that your works can survive for over 100 years.

Crafty Studio is the first (and only store) to sell White Nights watercolour paints in Ireland.  Learn more about the White Nights brand here.

    Wow, is all I can say about these paints. They have a richness that at first you disbelieve, and over paint as a result. Especially if coming from student grade pigments for other makers. But when you learn the light touch the results are truly scrumptious.
