best quality watercolour paints

 Why are Derivan the best quality watercolour paints?  When we started to create our Derivan watercolour, we had a goal to create a superior product at an affordable price.  We wanted them to be a single series (meaning the same price for each tube), but we wanted them to be lightfast of the 24 colours in the range are listed as ASTM 1 and ASTM2 *for a paint to be considered artist quality, it should be lightfast or permanent, with an ASTM rating of 1 or  2.  We also wanted the label to reflect the quality, so each label has the pigment listed and hand-painted with the colour so artists can make an informed decision and see exactly what they are getting.
