About This Product
Gansai Tambi watercolors are one of our longtime favorites, and this new Art Nouveau-inspired set of 24 shows off what's great about these paints. Gansai Tambi are thick and creamy, with a semi-opaque, satin finish. It's a unique type of watercolor that's somewhere between Western-style transparent watercolor and opaque gouache. Thin Gansai Tambi with water, and you can make subtle washes, but apply it thickly and you can create sharp lines and dramatic, saturated shapes.
The new Art Nouveau set adds a wonderful selection of muted colors to the Gansai Tambi lineup, plus a few surprising brights that complement them perfectly. Here's the full list of colors:
Row 1: 404 Saffron Yellow, 405 Green Gold, 401 Flax Beige, 16 Ecru Beige
Row 2: 18 Pale Pink, 17 Coral Pink, 19 Potter's Pink, 302 Vermilion
