Top Japanese Watercolor Palette Picks for June

 Introducing the 2024 Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors! These special paints create stunning granulated effects when mixed with water. Each color blend contains multiple pigments that separate on wet paper, forming unique patterns. These rich and intense paints are perfect for brush painting, illustration, and calligraphy. Available colors are Aurora Violent, Blue, Orange, Pink, and Red. Plus, an empty pan is included for mixing and enhancing these amazing effects. 

Kissho in Kyoto, has a long history of manufacturing of genuine materials for traditional Japanese painting.

This paint carries the delicate fragrance of sumi ink. Saibi Sumi achieves its exquisite color by uniquely pulverizing Kishō face paint and Kobaien oil soot ink. The resulting colors are vibrant with a rich, muted hue. Highly recommended as a beautiful addition to any artist's watercolor collection.
