●Gansai Tambi "Gofun White”
“Gofun White” ( 胡粉 ) is made from real chalk which is made by shell of oyster.
Not a vivit white with opacity like the usual white, but a soft and transparent color with a slight warmth unique to Gofun.
Water-based pigment paint can be highly opaque when used solely as a gouache but can also become more transparent depending on the amount of water added for dilution.
Kuretake's more than 100 years of sumi ink making technology enables beautiful blotting.
It is a solid type of watercolor pressed into pans that can be prepped and cleaned up quickly and easily dissolves in water.
The large 48mm x 28mm pan makes it easy to use larger, thick brushes and color large surface areas in artwork.
