Enjoy 12 vintage shades of Gansai in your art practice, the Japanese alter-ego to European watercolours – also similar to gouaches. These high quality paints, made in Japan, can be used directly out of the box with a wet paintbrush – either thinly in translucent washes, or by layering for a bolder effect. These can also be used on darker paper bases.

This selection of 12 colours is presented in a gold Japanese fabric-bound presentation box.

These Gansai Tambi 12 Vintage watercolour sets are the additional colours from Gansai Tambi which, when added to the 36 colour range, make up the Gansai Tambi 48 colour set.  This set is a perfect addition for those who already own a Gansai Tambi 36 colour set but would like to expand their collection to the 48 colour range. The colours are reminiscent of the traditional colours found in vintage Japanese kimonos
Colours featured in the Vintage  set :

Natural Beige, Rose Beige, Lilac, Cherry Blossom Pink, Greenish Yellow, Lime Green, Horizon Blue, Cobalt Blue, Blue Gray Deep, Indian Red, Maroon and Gray

Occasionally, some Gansai Japanese Pan Colours may display fine cracks (or ‘crazing’) in their pans. This is quite normal for these particular pan paint colours.These cracks do not affect the paint quality.
