Traditional Japanese solid watercolours for professional artists and crafters. They are ideal for sketching, illustration, sumi-e and more! By using original colours instead of mixing with other colours, the colours obtain a higher brilliance.
- Nontoxic water-based pigment conforms to ASTM D 4236
- Box Cover provides color chart for you to paint, provides actual color in use representation
- Gansai pan may show cracking due to dryness, occasioanally Gansai pan may look rough due to tiny air bubbles. None of these affect the quality
My favourite watercolours. I wish they sold empty boxes for storage though! I speak a little Japanese so maybe I will suggest that!
Love these colours. They take on a vibrancy when dry. Very creamy. Love love love the colours.
Since January of this year I have been purchasing and comparing watercolour brands- so now I have a pretty large range of colors and qualities-
I came across this retailer in Australia and these Japanese Watercolors and I purchased the selection of greens for painting Australian Landscapes-
The number one thing I love about these watercolors is their consistency on the paper- (only good quality cotton papers) but I've been trying out papers too.
The price point was affordable for me, the vibrancy was beautiful and creamy and the colors readily mix with the pigment stable.
These are comparable to Win&New and WhKni brands.
I have my little selection of Australian greens in a little pencil box and they are cherished and I am finding this type of watercolor is a breakthrough for me.
So I can really highly recommend them.
I have purchased about 12 pans now and absolutely love the colour saturation. My only problem I have now is to find something suitable to store them / keep them safe. I have searched everywhere on the internet to take this size of pans, but no-one does it. Would be great if Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolour producers also provided an empty storage box of some kind to accommodate this amazing product, I will be first in line to purchase one.
Affordable and fantastic quality!
