Yasutomo Authentic Chinese Watercolors

Our customers have had a lot of fun painting with these watercolors.  They are a newer addition to the Yasutomo line and we introduced them to our customers last fall.  If you are interested in Oriental painting you will want to try these traditional brilliant colors.

These watercolors were specifically made for Chinese painting.  They are fully water soluble and can be mixed with Chinese ink,  Sumi ink, and traditional watercolors.  The drying time is a little longer than traditional watercolors and can be fully reworked.  They are water resistant when dry and can withstand wet mounting when mounted on absorbent paper.  The plant based colors are semi-transparent and the mineral colors are opaque and have superior lightfastness.
