Chinese watercolors have unique properties that set them apart from any other paints. Explore the difference with this set of 12 Authentic Chinese Watercolors from Yasutomo.
These paints are made with finely ground pigments that are extraordinarily smooth when used both full strength and thinned with water. But unlike most Western and Japanese watercolors, which are made with gum arabic binders, Yasutomo Authentic Chinese Watercolors feature a stronger binder that's almost glue-like. This enables them to stand up to many traditional Chinese painting techniques, such as overpainting and painting on the reverse side of paper. Finished pieces can also withstand wet mounting.
With their unique, smooth consistency, these watercolors easily mix with both Chinese and Japanese inks without muddying. They are watersoluble, certified non-toxic, and offer superior lightfastness.
The Yasutomo Authentic Chinese Watercolor Set includes 12 ml (0.4 oz) tubes of Burnt Sienna, Scarlet, Gamboge Yellow, Chinese White, Vermillion, Cinnebar, Rouge, Carmine Red, Light Green, Light Blue, Phthalo Blue, and Indigo.
