About This Product
Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors are a perfect addition to any desk or studio. Traditional Japanese watercolors are more opaque than Western transparent colors, making them simpler to use and a more direct medium for quick sketches. If you need more transparency for a particular project, just add more water and Gansai Tambi can also create lighter washes. These luminous solid watercolors are perfect for illustration and botanical sketching.
This is the set of 48 colors, including several new soft colors and metallics, perfect for those who love a big color selection out of the box. There's a blank color chart in the lid so you can make swatches to remind yourself what each color looks like on paper. Made in Japan and packaged in an elegant, textured green box with gold foil stamp.
We also stock Gansai Tambi in several smaller sets. Need a brush or two to use with your new colors? Try Princeton Neptune, the super soft brush pictured with this set. Or for more detailed painting, linework, and calligraphy, we recommend Aqua Elite brushes.
