Behind the cardboard cover is a table with some empty boxes for you to create your colour swatches. For a 12 pan set like this, you can actually still identify the colours by looking at the pans. However when there are too many colours, it will be difficult to identify because the colours will look too similar and that's when you will find a colour swatch table really useful. If you have not heard of the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, you’ll want to watch my video to learn a bit about them. If you do know about them, I hope you’ll enjoy hearing my thoughts on them. I guess you could call my video a review. Or perhaps an unboxing. Or even an introduction to Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor. Whatever the case, I hope my video is useful to you. Perfect for painting in the studio or on the go. The unique filtration design maintains a consistent flow of water to the brush tip. Simply fill the barrel with water and the water brush is ready to be used! No more messes with a BrusH2O in hand. Works wonderfully with our Art & Graphic Twin, Clean Color Real Brush, and Gansai Tambi Watercolors.

The vibrancy of the all the colors is wonderful. As with all of the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, they lift with little effort at all. Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors are wildly popular and with good reason. They are particularly exciting to card makers and crafters these days. That being said, it is not a new product fad. Artists have loved this product a long time. The company has been producing quality art supplies for over 100 years and their reputation is important to them. Kuretake Gansai Japanese Watercolours are traditional, highly pigmented watercolour paints. They are suitable for professional and amateur artists, and are ideal for drawing, illustration, Sumi-e etc.

What do I mean by “lift”? Simply put, when you put a wet brush onto the surface of the watercolor, how much pigment gets lifted off the surface, onto your brush? Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors lift great. That means there is plenty of pigment on your brush with little effort to get it there. No scrubbing your brush on the surface trying to get extra pigment and no adding layer upon layer of color, just to get any joy out of the vibrancy your project has.The soft nylon brush tip of Clean Color Real Brush allows for a wide range of brush strokes from broad to extra fine. The colors can be blended like watercolors in a palette when used with a water brush. Available below in 7 sets: Set of 4, 6, 12, 24, 36, 48 and 60.

The pans are laid out nicely in the box. Beneath each pan you can see the colour code and the name of the colour in Japanese. The same colour number code refer to different colours for Kuretake and Kissho. Pen, Brush & Watercolor -All In One! Art & Graphic Twin markers can be used with our BrusH2O to create a multitude of watercolor effects. With it’s flexible rubber tip, these markers are also ideal for working directly on rubber stamps. These Kuretake Gansai Watercolours are very intense colours with exceptional brilliance and brightness. All shades blend perfectly together. Here are random colour swatches. Can you identify the colours from Kissho based on what I said about the hard edges? There are six from Kissho. The 24 pan set (31996) contains the colours from the 12 pan set, plus: 134 dark pink, 139 purple, 143 medium yellow, 147 dark brown, 150 bright turquoise, 151 may green, 152 ocean green, 154 olive green, 157 turquoise green, 158 evergreen, 161 cornflower blue, 162 cobalt blue

Here's the review of the popular Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolour. Gansai refers to Japanese watercolour and Tambi means "aesthetic". As you can see, you can easily achieve flat washes with Kuretake Gansai Tambi. The colours would have that pastel-like feel but overall colours are still quite vibrant. For this particular set, it works well for pen and ink sketches as you can still see the lines show through beneath. Conclusion Overall, I would say Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolour is quite enjoyable to use. They are more opaque so you have to be more careful. Understanding your colours and mixtures well is more important with Kuretake, especially if you come from using American and European watercolours. On the left is the full pan. It's gigantic. The middle's the Gansai half pan and the right is the more common half pan. Note that the Gansai pans are not filled to the brim. So a half Gansai pan actually contains, probably, the same amount of paint as those common half pans. When you used up the Gansai pan, you can obviously fill it up to the brim with your tube paints. That's exactly what I'm going to do to save me the trouble of finding Gansai replacement pans. I have used these beautiful Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors in several videos.
