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.

Comments about Yasutomo Authentic Chinese Watercolor Set:
Very vibrant pigmented colours. You can't use them with other watercolours. I tried using them with Winsor and Newton as well as Vangogh and its like the pigment of one of them breaks apart.However, on their own they are gorgeous! I was very surprised with how vibrant they are! I recommend them, the price is great for just trying them out!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've never used Chinese watercolors before..and I didn't know what to expect but...these are super awesome!! I have student grade watercolors that are most expensive than this, and these have way more pigment and are so much more vibrant even if they are considered 'artist grade'! I love these watercolors! Will purchase again when I run out!
Very interesting so far

This is quite opaque yet thinable so you can make it go a long way I am still experimenting some with using it with other watercolors . I love the tubes these come in too so far

I have always been satisfied with Dick Blick in the past. When I was in NYC, I would go to the stores there And I was fascinated and overwhelmed. I will use Dick Blick Products in the future.
