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.
The Gem Colors Set is a tuned palette of six vibrantly saturated mica watercolors that pack a lot of sparkle. Metallic colors can be applied to both dark and light papers. 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.
