Introducing Custom Color Sets from the color experts at St. Louis Art Supply! Tell us a little about your artistic interests by checking some of the boxes above. We'll hand-pick a set of colors to get you excited about a new medium or refresh your existing collection with some colors you might not have considered before.

This custom set of six colors includes a Midori Pulp Storage box (normally $8.99), which neatly holds your Gansai Tambi and has room to spare for a travel brush, pen, and pencil. Pulp Storage is a strong, post-consumer paper pulp box with an elastic band closure. Our Color Expert will select a box color (white, grey, or beige) that complements your paint colors.

Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, hand-poured in Japan and presented in generously sized pans, have become an all-time favorite among our customers who paint. Gansai Tambi are traditional Japanese watercolors, meaning they are more opaque than Western transparent colors. Their opacity makes Gansai Tambi 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, botanical sketching, hand-lettering, and any other project that calls for color.

Made in Japan.
