Secretly (until now) one of Ling Chi's favorite color palettes to use when painting smaller works such as cards, smaller artworks, demonstration pieces and where ever her creative hand takers her.
The non-toxic, water-based paints are lightfast and ideal for smaller Chinese brush painting works; sketching; illustration; sumi-e; cards (etegami) and mail art; calligraphy and more! Each watercolor comes in a plastic housing that can be taken out from the box (palette) set during use. The underside of the box lid features a color chart that you can fill in yourself using the actual watercolors so that you can see exactly how they will appear when used.
OAS is offering a 12 color basic set and an expanded 36 color set.
