Vibrant Colours For Sketch Painting
With the 36 colour Kuretake Watercolour set, you’ll have those creative juices flowing and painting more than just a rainbow! For me, one of the main winning points of this product is the vivid colours from Kuretake Gansai Tambi. They’re impressively, highly pigmented considering they’re watercolours. Depending on the amount of water you use, you control the opaqueness or translucency. Personally, I’ve never used paints quite like them! A round of applause for Japan please for creating such a beautiful and efficient product. Kuretake watercolours are actually kneaded together with a resin/glue that helps to create that long lasting, bright colour with a smoothness that is unparalleled. The finely ground pigment particles really do allow for easy layering, blending and creating of graduations. You’ll be living your Van Gogh fantasy with every brush stroke. They’re truly exceptional.
The Best Watercolour Set
What makes the Kuretake Watercolour set so good? They listened to their feedback and created paints that people wanted. Keeping that traditional Japanese style of painting, they upped the vivid-ness, made the paints easy to mix, dissolve quickly, and created a palette that is easy to use with a whopping 36 colours to play with. Instead of square corners that can be really difficult to reach into, the pots are rounded to ensure no paint goes unused as you can reach in those hard to reach spots with your brush (and definitely get your money’s worth). It’s not “mottai nai” which is a waste in Japanese. The pots are actually removable from the main container so they’re easy to move about whilst you’re working, and just as easy to replace when you’re not. This set is extra glamorous as it contains 3 different metallic colours that are to die for!
Non Toxic Paint So It’s Better For The Environment
Kuretake prides itself on its non-toxic pigments that allow for beautiful, vivid creations without the danger of affecting human health or the environment negatively. In fact, they are AP approved by the ‘Art and Creative Materials Institute’. The number of ingredients used to make these watercolours are kept to a bare minimum which not only allows for those infamous bright colours, but also lowers the risk of dangerous ingredients being used. Compared to their toxic counterparts there aren’t any pungent smells, they are easier to clean with just soap and water, they allow for a quicker dry and not to mention the environmental benefits such as no toxic emissions. You can create art without damaging your health or the earth. Now doesn’t that sound spiffing?
