Good things come in small packages!
Chinese Chip Colors come in little pieces and offer brilliant color! These watercolors produce the best results on rice paper and are the most economical because they last a long time.
Empty the entire contents of a package into a dish and gather them to one side. Mist them with water from a fine spray bottle and, when dry, they will glue onto the dish. To produce color, simply re-wet the chips. They essentially work like Western pan watercolors.
OAS has the following Chinese chip colors available:
- Burnt Sienna
- Sky Blue
- Dark Red
- Lemon Yellow
Chinese Yellow can be used on its own by rubbing water against a solid chunk if it comes as so, otherwise add all contents to a small jar with a lid. Add 1/2 Tablespoon at a time of water (preferably distilled) until Chinese Yellow chunks are halfway submerged. Soak of several hours until yellow becomes clay-like. Diluted as needed.
