The Sakura Koi tradtitional Japanese watercolour paints are made with a special binding agent and specially selected pigments that offer instant response to water. This formula allows the artist to combine an array of colors to match their subject matter, spread colour easily and evenly across the paper, create spontaneous washes with soft edges and layer, merge and adjust colors in whatever painting technique chosen.
Each Sakura Koi Watercolour Paint Field Set includes a large water reservoir barrel, a detachable medium brush tip, two dabbing sponges, a snap lid that acts as an easel for postcard size papers, a detachable, pegged palette that secures to the set base either to the right, left or center sides and a base pull-down ring that allows for easy gripping.
