Watercolor Paints Add Depth to Adult Color Books


Sam used our new Gansai Tambi watercolors to create this gorgeous art on an adult coloring book page. The custom frame adds the finishing touch and this will look beautiful hanging on any wall in the house.


Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors are handcrafted, professional-quality Japanese watercolors with a highly blendable, creamy-smooth consistency. The colors are rich and intense, and exhibit greater opacity than European or American watercolors in traditional Japanese style.
Try these lush watercolors for sketching, illustration, sumi-e, etegami, ink-like wash painting, and more. All colors are certified non-toxic. Pans measure approximately 2" × 1".
Here is a product review and demo video by The Frugal Crafter.
