Gansai Tambi Watercolors, #38 Imperial Violet
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.
We're pleased to offer every Gansai Tambi color as an individual pan, so you can assemble your own set or replace pans from your existing set.
