About This Product

Gansai Tambi watercolors are one of our longtime favorites, and this set of 12 soft colors has been a bestseller since its introduction in 2019. 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 Soft Colors set has been so popular because it's a perfect selection for sketching, whether in a daily journal, a travelogue, or in your urban sketching practice. Use the top six colors for sunsets, botanicals, and countryside; use the bottom six for rainy days, city streets, and mountainsides.

    The colors included are #14 Cherry Blossom Pink, #13 Lilac, #69 Horizon Blue, #60 Cobalt Blue, #59 Lime Green, #48 Greenish Yellow, #11 Natural Beige, #12 Rose Beige, #71 Indian Red, #72 Maroon, #21 Grey, and #68 Black.

    Made in Japan. Presented in a moss-green paper box with gold foil stamp.
