About Us

Genzäh Handmade Watercolours handcrafts and distributes professional watercolour paints for artists. These paints are made in small batches with simple ingredients:

  • High-Quality Dry Pigment
  • Gum Arabic
  • Locally Sourced Wildflower Honey
  • Clove Oil
  • No Fillers
  • No Chemical Preservatives

Each paint has its own unique combination of ingredients depending on the pigments used. The pigment is enveloped in the gum arabic solution with a glass muller and slab until they reach the perfect consistency. Watercolour pans are then filled in thin layers over the course of several weeks to ensure they are rich and highly concentrated.

Genzäh currently offers a small line of standard high-quality colours, along with a growing series of premium colours not commonly offered in the art supply industry.
