The rich and intense colors of Gansai Tambi are handcrafted, professional-quality pigment inks. These fine-caliber watercolors are highly blendable, with a creamy-smooth consistency found only in traditional Japan. These watercolors can be as opaque as gouache when used with little water. To achieve a more transparent effect, dilute the paints with water and blend until the desired consistency and opacity is reached.
This stunning wood box set, honoring Kuretake's 120th anniversary, collects every single color in their stunning range. With 100 unique shades—including 70 standard hues and a dazzling array of specialty Gem, Pearl, Opal, Starry, and Graphite varieties—it's perfect for calligraphy, brush lettering, illustrations, and more. Elegantly arranged in a four-tray stacking wood case and tied with classic green-gold Gansai Tambi elastic, your studio deserves this extraordinary and elegant limited-edition set.
