We love everything by Kuretake! This Japanese company makes an array of beautiful art supplies beloved by professionals and hobbyists alike. Kuretake’s Gansai Tambi watercolors maintain their clarity and brilliance by using minimal ingredients, and by offering a wider variety of colors so you don’t have to mix or dilute pigments (which can result in muddiness.) These solid watercolors dissolve quickly for smooth, even application, making them ideal for sketching and illustration, sumi-e, and more.
Best of all these water-based pigments are non-toxic and environmentally friendly!
