Peerless makes the world's most brilliant, vibrant colours. Developed in 1885 by Charles F. Nicholson.

 The smart idea of these dry books is that each sheet of the Water Colour book is a special paper fabric coated with a dense layer of highly concentrated and rich, vibrant colour.

These sheets have a myriad of uses and are ideal for colouring black & white prints, retouching colour photographs and slides and artists in general.

To activate the colours, you touch the sheet with a damp brush or cotton swab, and the colour magically changes state to a liquid for immediate use. You could alternatively cut off a small piece, dissolve it with water and the mix together in your palette Either way; you will marvel at the colour as it comes to life.
